As photographers, we are visual artists, makers, and creators. I believe it is essential for us to create and make photos everyday; treat everyday like a small lifetime.
This is the basic idea:
You’re constantly in a state of becoming as a photographer.
Everyday you’re evolving as a photographer and visual artist.
What interests you today isn’t what interested you yesterday. Thus, seek to extract the fullest maximum as a photographer today from your life!
Shoot more with your phone
The more I think about the phone, it is the ultimate tool for photographers:
- You can shoot photos
- You can select your photos (editing)
- You can post-process your photos and upload them online and share them.
With a phone, it is the ultimate fluid photography experience. No need to import photos, or fiddle with computers.
The phone is a “full stack” device for photographers.
I’ve been testing the Google Pixel 3 for photography the last few days, and the more I use it, the more I love it!
What I particularly love about the Pixel 3 (and Android phones in general) is the ecosystem with Google Photos. It is super easy to process my pictures and then upload them to my blog, or Dropbox, or whatever.
Also, I’ve been shooting a lot more in situations I usually wouldn’t shoot, like in the post office or the gym. Or during random appointments.
Or when I’m sitting and bored, I just look around and photograph whatever interests me, like the holes in my jeans:
Tips on shooting everyday
- Shoot with your phone, process with your phone, and upload photos online from your phone.
- When you’re in a situation when you’re normally bored, use that opportunity to look around and shoot photos.
- Shoot more macro photos; you will find more interest in the world when you shoot super close!
SHOOT ALL DAY!
