REFLECTING ON LIFE

Time is ticking ... find time to see the world that surrounds you.

"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography." - George Eastman

Tony Ray-Jones Photographic advice to self
......................................

Be more aggressive
Get more involved (talk to people)
Stay with the subject matter (be patient)
Take simpler pictures
See if everything in background relates to subject matter
Vary compositions and angles more
Be more aware of composition
Don’t take boring pictures
Get in closer (use 50mm lens [or possibly ‘less,’ the writing is unclear])
Watch camera shake (shoot 250 sec or above)
Don’t shoot too much
Not all eye level
No middle distance

I discovered that my approach to photography bore a remarkable resemblance to the 10 golden rules of lomography so I tweaked it!
