A Few Bad Apples in Landscape Photography

A Few Bad Apples in Landscape Photography

I like to think the photography community is a positive one. It is filled with great people that are very passionate about art, helping others, and helping to expand it to more and more people.

Photography Communities

Photography is great on its own. I find it easy to go out in the field on my own and capture images because it is time that I can set aside for just myself. While I enjoy these moments of solitude, it is not what photography is all about and there is more to be had with the photography community!

Photography is about Mindset

Photography is about Mindset

While practicing photography is a great activity and I find pleasure in it most of the time I am not able to do it all the time and that is ok. I have a day job which means I am not able to go out and do landscape photography whenever I want.

Being an Introverted Landscape Photographer

Being an Introverted Landscape Photographer

When I started photography it seemed like a very extroverted thing to do. I am going out into the world to capture images and then I am sharing those images with everyone else. I am putting myself out there to build a reputation or personal brand through photography after all which requires being an extrovert. Right?

Fitness through Photography

Fitness through Photography

At first, I didn’t have much to replace the exercise with defaulting to a sedentary lifestyle. Especially during the winter it was easy to stay inside and avoid any form of physical exertion. Lucky for me I found photography as a good excuse to reverse these bad habits.
