The Art of Featured Photos

Something I’ve learned why photography and blogging are so hand-in-hand. The art of choosing your featured photograph. It is a forced editing of your photos, to select a certain image which you feel best represents a general idea or concept.

For example, I will often have a random idea for a blog post, and write it, and then after the fact, I go through my WordPress media library in order to find a featured image which I feel best reflects the germ of that idea.

Therefore, in order to creatively double dip: do both photography and blogging.
