Every day I get up and take incredibly beautiful photos. Ah, if only, eh? Somedays I have no idea what to photograph. Nothing looks good. Sometimes I review my own advice on how to get out of a photographic slump. Other times I turn to the Internet.
I save a lot of links to articles and websites via Twitter, Google+ and newsletters. I read through a few last night and wanted to pass them on to all of you.
If you are new to photography or have been doing it for years, the Digital Photography School (DPS) website has lots to offer you each week. This past week, the thought provoking article talking about The One Question You Should Ask Yourself Before Taking Any Picture got me considering my approach to photography. Do you “see” and photograph patterns around you? If you, like me, seem to miss such opportunities. The DPS photo essay called 33 Inspirational Images that Feature Patterns and Repetition will help. I highly suggest you subscribe to the DPS weekly newsletter for more great information and inspiration.
