This is what I’ve found to be the nuts and bolts of photography.
1. When you get the photo bug, everything has world class, prize winning potential. Even the wacky stuff. ‘Wacky?’ you ask.
Yeah, you know, like weird stuff. Like, I don’t know…grass.
2. Let’s pretend you’re not the rational, sensible person you are and you strangely become fixated on grass.
You take a million zillion photos of the stuff, the grass, I mean, and try your darn hardest to be all pro about it. That of course, means taking a million zillion more shots just to be on the safe side.
3. You become completely obsessed until reality drags your mind back to the real world. The world where grass is just grass.
For me reality was my six-old-year brother, who decided sitting on me was the only efficient way to gain my grass-distracted attention.
4. You take home your camera with your wacky shots of grass and after combing through them, cull a million zillion photos down to…just…two.
5. This means that when you blog your world class, prize winning, pro master shots…you have to repeat them.
Quite a few times…
