Calling and camera

Written by on October 19, 2010 in Notes By The Way with 0 Comments

I’ve come to a fork in the road as a photographer. I no longer want to shoot just for the sake of the images. I love a great photograph, and I could happily wander in search of moments to capture; and some great photographers have worked that way. But now I want to dig in and discover, learning and telling stories with real people.

These aren’t original thoughts, just a pause to say where I’m at. Now is the time (as always) to find something worth doing, take a risk, and do it well. The tragedy (as always) is to choose safety or familiarity and leave a better road untried.
