This is a blog for the rest of us; for the ones not interested in what’s marketable, but what’s remarkable. In other words, it’s a place for what the arrogant in our hobby would deem “lesser photographers.”
I’ve been guilty in the past of focusing more on the technical side of photography. I still do. I would talk about megapixels and lenses and sensor size as though just having the right equipment would help me produce better results. It didn’t.
Starting sometime late last year, I decided that none of that was making my photography more compelling – to me. I was not enjoying my hobby as much. I had forgotten that what had brought me to photography was capturing images for my own enjoyment. Not for sale. Not to impress other people. Just for me.
I wanted to bring the joy back to my hobby. That’s one reason I started a 365 project this year. I wanted to experience the wonder – and the personal challenge – of seeing how well I could capture the experience that was before my eyes. I wanted to make my photography compelling again. At least to me.
