Here I am sitting at my father’s hospital bedside, my mother sleeping on the recliner. Not being able to take photos–hospitals not exactly my forté–I decided to blog photos I have never posted.
I’m a tad envious of those photographers who can make the most out of the mundane. While I look at everything with sharper eyes since acquiring my third appendage, I am trying to broaden my focus. Really trying!
I’ve learned so much from other photographers such as expanding my topics, working a subject, and trying different techniques and tutorials. I wish I had more time to practice my craft, but this work obligation always seems to come first.
I have even had suggestions from bloggers to: Show us your photos of people, of faces! As I had mentioned above, I am striving to broaden my knowledge. Living in such a small town, there’s not much opportunity for good people studies–at least interesting ones. People in flip flops, bathing suits, and beach chairs don’t always make for good photos. I need to go to the city for better subjects.
I did wake up very early one Wednesday morning to drive into Atlantic City to try a little people photography, but I chickened out: Where do I park without getting harassed? Will someone abscond with my camera? A woman alone in AC–am I crazy? What if someone sees me taking their photo? After 20 minutes of this rationale, I drove home.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Here in front of all the gods and all the world, I vow to do some street photography in 2012!
Pinky promise! Pasa buen dia!
