Courage? (inresponse to Stormcrow’s comment)
I post these pictures to show how I go through making pictures. The act of writing about them makes me think about them too. the thinking bit is crucial- that’s why I get the pictures from the drying shelf each day just to be familiar with them. With that amount of familiarity, you can even visualise the picture when you’re out. that often goes through my mind while cycling in the countryside.Sometmes they don’t progress as I want, or they go in some direction that leaves me unsure what to do. Writing here helps me think through how I got into those kinds of cul-de-sacs. I hope in the long run to focus on techniques that work, enable results that push my understanding of the things I look at. It’s learning to see better.
This sounds a bit vague but it’s part of improving.
Having said that, the bigest fixes I get into are always due to inadequate observation. When something isn’t right, I look around, mostly when I’m out and notice things. Becareful tough, if someone thinks you are staring at their shirt, trying to work out how the colour changes in the shadow areas with translucent fabric, they may think you are *staring*.
