DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT….CHALLENGE YOURSELF TODAY…..OR TOMORROW….

JOHNSON’S POND…
While out late yesterday looking for local foliage and chasing the sunset (things were hectic!) I came across a pond I’ve been by many times but never paid it much heed. It’s now on my personal list as a location to keep an eye on going forward (especially in Spring).

Disregarding the old photographer’s rule of having the sun over your shoulder I shot right at it. Cameras today can react & respond to various light sources much better than film could. So, why not! I think photographers today are so much more fortunate than when I started taking photos with today’s technology. Take long exposures, take them at night, shoot into the sun, move your camera around as you hand hold it (what no tripod?!), change your ASA mid roll (oh wait a minute it’s digital…ISO…anything goes)…..I know Don & I are and you should too if you’re not already….. Demand more from yourself.  Demand more from your camera.  Admire other photographers’ work BUT go out on your own.  Yes, take the typical shots of scenery and so forth but make time to challenge your creativity too!

As technology improves with cameras and software Don & I encourage creativity.  Strongly encourage Creativity……  We mean to say  STRONGLY ENCOURAGE CREATIVITY!!!
