Notice, observe, be a voyeur

Article Excerpt: “Good photographers have hungry eyes. They are constantly looking, evaluating, internally composing—and yes, even being busy bodies and prying. The photographer is part voyeur, and the voyeur is obsessive about observing the details of their obsession…This makes photographs that show things that are often overlooked a common source of photographic inspiration. Photographers are just naturally good at this kind of thing…There are two parts to creating an image of something overlooked. You have to notice it, and then package it. The packaging is probably harder than the initial observation.”~Harold Davis from his article Making the Unseen Visible

  1. This is so true! I am an observer, a voyeur. I am most content observing rather than participating. Capturing moments in time.

      I guess we are all voyeurs in the photographic sense….observing and obsessing with things…and you do a great job on this with your gorgeous nature shots…and that heron (was that a heron?) on the pier, perfect image! thanks for the visit Roy!

  2. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?|
