Snapshots of Random Objects
I was just discussing with a friend how important it is for photographers to try all different kinds of things all the time. And maybe even to never strive at specializing in one specific genre of photography. Ironically it seems like I’ve become more known for my street photography than anything else. True, I’ve said it and I’ll say it again: If I had to make a choice and limit myself to one specific genre, I would most likely choose street photography. That said, I photograph everything that moves me. Little details catch my eye every minute of the day, whether I carry a camera or not. Learning how to see photographically is a big part of my teaching during the week-long workshops, even if most students come for the street photography component which is definitely the main focus.
The world is too beautiful to limit your vision! Once you learn to see, you can never be bored again, no matter how mundane your surroundings may seem. Sometimes it’s about a color or a texture, other times it’s all about light and shadows.
We are surrounded by beautiful things, even ordinary objects deserve a chance to be photographed in their best light and be rendered extraordinary. Here are a few random things I photographed during my daily outings this past month. None of them have people in them! Do you have a favorite?
