I been saying this for decades…..well, since digital came into my life and photography studio. And completely transformed EVERYTHING….for the better.
If you want to get gooder at photography, at seeing the light, mastering composition, predicting moments and honing your skills, get a small point and shoot camera.
And bring it with you everywhere. Go on adventures. Challenge yourself. PUSH the boundaries.
It’s like when you see those rock bands traveling on a bus and they have a little baby amp, and they’re playing, practising, honing.
Same idea. BU’cept it’s music.
Same idea. BU’cept it’s light. And all things visual.
The benefits are huge. And it’s a whole heap of fun. Try it.
Yours in photography and success,
P.S. CELL PHONES DON’T COUNT…..trust me on this one. Yes, some will create decent images with their phones.
But, for most of us’em mere mortals, the INTENT goes away.
