Tip of the Week: The Power of Observation


At first, forget that you need to arrange elements and compose a frame. Put your camera down and simply relax. Look around you and take in everything there is to see. Then, choose one element and discover its various aspects. On a busy street, observe how the light shines on people, flowers and even the sidewalk. Watch it pour through tiny holes in lattice work and leaves or even gaps in doors and windows. Gradually, you will discover that observing just one element provides you with innumerable photographic opportunities.
