I have to get these thoughts out of my head and on here while they are there. Been sitting making a blog or two thinking about the way I go about getting the photographs. When we go on walks like we do I don"t really know what I am going to be taking photographs of. I recently started wondering, "Is this the right way to go about it?" I don't know. Some photographers have exactly what they want in their head before they even start. These people take the time collecting the gear and the help they need to get it. I watched a video of a photographer who tied up a whole city street creating a set just like a movie set and spent hours building the scene. For a photograph. It was actually quite cool. Don't think that's for me. I have planned shots but I think there was only one that I pictured in my mind and what I created was almost exactly it. It was the tank shot I put on here some time ago. I am actually quite proud of it. There is another one I had in my head but was going to be a lot of luck involved. It was the opposing Snowbirds. I got the shot pretty much as I had hoped and am proud of that one too.Please read further.
I guess what I am wondering here is where I am going with all this. Not really sure. Should I keep going out and wandering the streets? I sure enjoy that. I have been very happy with the work I have put on here. Am I going to grow as a photographer? I started the blog to help inspire me, make me get out there and do the photography. It has worked, I have been doing a lot more and learning. I seem to be in a bit of a lull at the moment. I am actually not sure where I am going to get photo's to put on here in a few days. Should I stop and change direction? I don't think I want to do that, it's too much fun, whether I am with my friends or alone, taking photos or printing them or processing them. Maybe I should do the same but change direction a little. I want to take photo's of Japanese food. Maybe I should go by our little local sushi place, order lunch and ask if they don't mind if I take some photos. That would be a hurdle for me approaching people cold.... I think I will start trying stuff like that.
This is just too much deep thought for me. Especially on a work night.
In the meantime here is a picture of a pretty bird to tide us over.
Too tired to look up what the settings were.
