So I buy all of this big, heavy, expensive stuff to take technically good but compositionally mediocre pictures of boring things. But I do it for me, because I’m slowly developing a skill that I’ve always wanted to have, and the process is producing results that I value highly. Any enjoyment or praise of my photos by others is a welcome bonus, but not the goal at all.
I love Marco’s photography. He’s a lot more talented that he lets on here.
But I know what he’s talking about. I feel the same way. I always wanted to have that skill too.
