The Three Pointed Shape of Photographic Thinking

F-Stop is a phrase that you hear many photographers using in conversations, then they often go on to include shutter speed and ISO settings. At this point many beginner photographers and non-photographers start to nod-off and lose the thread of conversation.

This is an example of how I look and work; I haven’t cracked it yet. The bench attracts me each time I pass it. I know that if I stop and look, think, then try a couple more thoughtfully prepared shots, I might suddenly realize why I find this bench so interesting — one day! For now, it’s just a bench, but I know it has a soul :-)
