My friend Don just posted an illuminating article that made me think about my own personal photography work. I do my best to always have my camera with me, not just with me in its bag, but strapped across my chest or hanging off my shoulder whether while driving in the car or shopping in grocery store.
I try to make a photograph every day but sometimes I’m not in the mood or the scenery I see does not warrant me actuating the shutter. So it bothers me sometimes that maybe I should be “taking” more photographs to “make” one that I like.
Well after reading Don’s post has helped give me some relief as its not the quantity per say but that one image that forms instantly in your mind as you bring the camera to your eye. When the light is just right, when everything begins to align that says make this picture. And in my mind as I make the photograph, I’ve already made a plan on how that one image will be processed in my computer’s darkroom.
Thanks Don for sharing your thoughts and I hope you don’t mind me sharing. (Some Memories about Photography & Ding McNulty)
