Retrain your eye to “see”


Article Excerpt: “Learning how to create exciting photographs challenges us to discover an in depth view of our surroundings, a tool for exploring our world in more detail. Think of a child just beginning to see. Their eyes are pure and unburdened, everything is new. Getting bogged down by technique right away, could just get in the way. If you enjoy taking pictures, then you will certainly spend some time learning the technical aspects necessary to produce even better images. But first and foremost learn how to see by retraining your eye, to speak with pictures and to draw with light. As in painting using brushes, this box we hold with a hole admitting in light when you press a button, is definitely within our control. The most important aspect of composing images is to create one that you yourself would want to view over again, for each time you see something new and different.” ~Judith Farber from her article The Art of Seeing – A Beginner’s Journey
