In The Yard – ITY07
While I was away on a business trip I had some extra time in the morning before I needed to head over to the supplier I was visiting so I was able to read a few more articles every morning. One article in particular at Digital Photography School lead me down a path and has me thinking a little more about how and what I photograph. It was Do Visual Push-Ups Everyday to Grow as a Photographer by Valérie Jardin. This of course brought me to her website and now another photographer I will be checking in on to read more articles.
What really struck me was the projects she uses to keep herself learning and exploring. The I thought about all the various projects or themes I have started over the past few years and how I do not keep them going. I get caught in trying to capture the big, beautiful sunset or the expansive landscape and forget about the little images all around me.
Last night after I got home from the trip and unpacked everything I grabbed the camera for a walk around the yard. There were quite a lot of opportunities and I decided I need to work on my In The Yard series. Images I capture while walking my yard and fields around the house. Of course, the first one I really liked was from the barbed wire fence. I guess you can’t break with tradition…
