If asked about the learning curve in photography, I would say that after you master the technology, the “rules” and the software to create photographs, the next step would be to explore. While the technology, “rules” and software can be daunting and a constant learning curve, figuring out what you want to shoot and how to present your work is just as big a step. A number of photographers told me early on to look at the work of others, photographers, painters, designers, not just to get ideas, but also to learn how they find their niche, their style, their areas of expertise. I like nature, street and landscape photography. I would like to do more portraits, visit a farm for a few days; the list of areas I want to explore is long. We all start by saying we want to photograph one thing, birds, concerts etc. When you look into the work of the pros that do those sorts of thing you will find their work extends well beyond what they are known for and this helps learn new approaches and skills. The photos in this post are windows into larger things, a definition of intimate landscape.
