Looking AND Seeing
We live in a world saturated with images – and it’s only getting worse. Facebook, Flicker, Instagram . . . everyone is giving us more to see at every turn. So what turns a photograph into a work of art? A picture that we want to decorate our living space with, that we want to look at over and over again. There are many elements: color / composition / subject / setting. A lot of it depends on not just looking at the world when you venture out, but in seeing the possibilities as you frame a picture in your lens. This is what I try to do as I set out with a camera in hand.
