It’s fun to revisit photos from the past. I have a lot of pictures I took while in New Orleans last year. I’m in the process of picking new favorites and will be sharing them here in the next little while. I’ve been out of the habit of posting on a regular basis and will hopefully be doing more as things are winding down now that summer has passed.
Something I always come across when reading photography books is a discussion about ways to grow as a photographer. A common theme I run into if you want to grow and become a better photographer is to get out of your comfort zone . I’ve experienced this a few times lately and thought I’d share my most recent experience.
Shaun Nelson and I did a little street photography in downtown Salt Lake City one afternoon. I have to say that this definitely took me out of my comfort zone. I’ve seen quite a few street photographer who can get some amazing photographs but I felt like I wasn’t able to get anything good. After about an hour I packed up and headed home not feeling comfortable with what I had and quite frankly didn’t care to do any more street photography again. Shaun mentioned that the first time is a little uncomfortable and to try it again. I took his advise and hit the streets again. I have to say I didn’t feel as uncomfortable but still a little awkward. I included a few of my favorite shots. I don’t anticipate me becoming a street photographer anytime soon but when the occasion arises I will be able to apply the things I learned from this adventure to the next one.
