Your view of life in Frames

“It is difficult to see the picture when you are inside the frame.”

The frame is important, it gives us the ability to isolate an object and say, “this is important, look at this.”

To be able to take a shot because you think it’s important, it’s special, and then have other people stop in their tracks and look at your photo is a success. You made them stop and look, stop and think.

If you get too “arty” about how you see the world you will begin to do what many of the artists have done in the past. You will begin to disconnect from the mainstream of thought and see the wonder in the oddest of subjects. To be able to convey the vision of the odd or rare idea is very difficult and often leads an artist or photographer to becoming eccentric and misunderstood.

Learning to take great photos can only happen when you practise. Everyday is a good idea, if not, at least each week a couple of times.
