Quote for the day:

Making pictures is a very simple act. There is no great secret in photography…schools are a bunch of crap. You just need practice and application of what you’ve learned. My absolute conviction is that if you are working reasonably well the only important thing is to keep shooting…it doesn’t matter whether you are making money or not. Keep working, because as you go through the process of working things begin to happen. -Elliott Erwitt

I am not going to say that I totally agree with this quote from Elliott Erwitt but he probably isn’t too far off if at all. To say that schools are a bunch of crap might be stretching it a bit. I do agree that there really is no secret to photography. To me it is really all about allowing yourself the freedom to shoot whatever it is you see that moves you. There is definitely some food for thought here.

  1. There’s no question the right Teacher can guide you on your way…but the real truth is when the “assignments” are over…can you shoot something without being told to? Can you “see” and capture what you felt about “seeing’ it or is it really only what was physically there? You are absolutely correct in that the more you shoot, the better you will become. Shooting something from every angle, until you can’t think of another way to shoot it…and you can’t help but improve.

    I love that header. Really catches the eye.
