Do you sometimes feel like you are in a photography rut and all of your photos are starting to look the same? Do you feel you are losing your passion for photography? Try changing your perspective.
When I was at the cabin in the woods on vacation this past summer, I had the same feelings. After one hike of photographing nothing but forest ferns and green trees, I was bored. So I decided that I would go out each day with a different eye. One day was macro and I trained myself to just see the small details like bugs and tiny flowers. The next day, it was changing my perspective to photograph all the scenes with the camera almost on the ground from a bugs view. And then I decided to start looking up. That’s when I made the plan to photograph the night sky as featured in my last post.
I love looking up, especially in cities. You can see architectural details and turn of the century murals on the tops of buildings. You never know what is looking down at you from above. The most interesting Gargoyles and animal sculptures sit above doorways and on rooftops.
So get out there and just Look Up! You never know what you will find!
