These photos are a few months old but I want to share them and a little more about me.
The word "think" is not a good word for me. When I think... I think way too hard and way too long, especially when I need to make a decision. I've even missed the moment because I was too busy thinking. I constantly have to tell myself to stop thinking so damn hard.
When it comes to my photos, I do the same thing.
I take a shot.
I look at the photo.
Then, all of these thoughts come rushing into my head.
'Is this good? Exposure and composition ok? Would others like it? Should I put it on Instagram? How many likes could I get? What if no one likes it? Why did I take the photo? Should I just delete it?...' The list goes on and on.
So how do I get out of this rut? I grab my camera, one lens, and go somewhere different. I keep my gears simple to challenge and limit my thinking time. When I have multiple choices, I would take more time choosing then shooting.
My wife and I visited "WE ARE 1976". The shop itself is unique and has great character. My wife was busy looking around the store and I was looking for something unique to photograph. One thing stood out to me: a lightbulb. Simplicity caught my eyes.
These are not award-winning photos or anything special.... But they're my photos and I like them. All of the other stuff, it doesn't matter and I choose not to think about it.
What do you do to clear your head or to just stop thinking?
