Ah dear reader, it’s nice to see you again. I am still here but I happen to be a little lost. As you know I am on a quest to better my photography. I even started a 365 project to do so….. And then I watched an episode of the grid that told me not to! I was told I should instead figure out what I want to do. Therein lies the rub. I want to do it all! Except portraits.
It was hinted at that I should decide to master one thing this year and not just be generic. So… What should it be… Let us do a process of elimination together ^_^
Portraits -as you know are out, I’m one of those awkward people, those who know me know this.
Wildlife – don’t have the glass or the time to travel extensively. I live in the city so the only wildlife is rats and cats. Neither are really high on my list.
Macro -don’t have the glass, and though beautiful takes a lot of time, effort and bugs.
Street/city – back to being that awkward person.. Let me leer at you through my lens. Also having a camera around my neck makes me stick out a little more than I already do here in Japan.
Underwater – would love to do these… If I could afford the housing so I wasn’t freaking out about water damage every 2 mins.
Trains – um nope. I mean great for practicing different skills but not something I enjoy taking pics of.
Sunrise/set – oh the over done joy! Honestly I like these but unless you are somewhere spectacular I really don’t want to see another.
Food – see above. In all honesty I don’t care how it looks, the most important thing for me is how’d it taste.
Architecture – this I enjoy, let my buildings lean! Lean back, lean back. So we got one that’s a maybe…
Landscapes – oh sweeping beauty how I wish you looked at least similar in my final product.
Daily life/traditional life – I live in Japan, opportunity abounds, but some odd million other people live here also…
Nature – Flowers, overdone but beautiful. Autumn leaves, see Flowers. But I enjoy it none the less. So that gives us another one to work on.
So I guess that gives me landscapes/scenic views and Nature. Hand in hand I guess. But I want to add “leaning” architecture to that too. And maybe a bit of daily life?
See the problem I’m running into here? I can’t get it down to just one. The tragedy! But I guess that will give me more to work with. So it seems that I will have to rename my G+ album and start getting more focused. I have ideas, but same problem as always. I actually need to get up and off the couch to do them!
