Look at the Light.

Take the time to step back occasionally and take your attention off the subject matter of your shoots.

Instead look at the light in the scene.

Look at where it is coming from and what effect it is having on the subject.

Find a Rule of Photography and Break It


Well maybe not so fast there!

Try this.

Find a rule of photography, learn it and apply it until you can see that it works and why it works.

Try to figure out why.

Then go out and break some rules!

Lather, rinse and repeat.
