Took The Kid to one of those historical colonial cities the other day on a playdate, because the person we have the playdate with weekly works there as a guide, so we were able to get in free. I was able to take the D40 with me and while I was able to get some good shots, I'd love to go there without a 5 year old at some point to do it again and really be able to take my time and focus.
You know what's funny, though? My Dad is really the one who taught me how to take pictures. He was a professional photographer for a few years, and he's the one who helped me get to where I am now (although mt style has signififcantly become my own, I think). Anyway, the think he always told me was "think small." Anyone can take a picture of a waterfall...what about the leaf floating in the water reflecting the waterfall?
Problem is, I might think TOO small now. Macro is like a joygasm for me. I micro-analyze a setting. I can't seem to take pictures of bigger subjects as well. Which is why I take something like this:
And I only see this:
But hey, it's my style.
