I find that when I “think” photography, I find more opportunities and subjects to shoot. I get lazy frequently and I’m sure I miss many great subjects to take. But when I purpose to “think photos”, I “see” more and come home with photos from an event or outing that I wouldn’t have considered a photo opportunity.
We were waiting for a table last night at a restaurant and were standing by their Christmas tree. Having just my iPhone, I thought I might chance a few photos. I’m sure a few folks thought I was silly for shooting an ornament, but I thought it turned out okay. Besides, it wouldn’t be the first time I’ve been accused of being silly.
