One of the ways I try to improve my photography is learning from others, and I subscribe to a couple great photography magazines that give helpful information. These magazines offer opportunities for photographers to submit work, generally showing a specific subject or technique. The other day, I saw the winning photograph in the ‘Better Lucky Than Good’ category. Wow – I could enter a picture in that category! I feel like that’s my modus operandi (m.o., for short).
I get in my Expedition and go trolling for pictures. When I head out, I go to places looking for subjects -wild horses, eagles and other raptors, bears, etc. – but I rarely go looking for a specific image. Thankfully, I live in an area that provides the subjects I like to shoot. Or, maybe I like these subjects because of where I live. That concept is just too deep and profound for me (at least today), so I won’t spend time on it.
Let’s just go with this – for now, I’ll go looking for subjects and make the best image I can. I’ll be flexible so I don’t miss that great Coyote shot while looking for Eagles or waterfowl. Maybe someday I will plan my shots, rather than taking what is given to me as I drive around. I’m good with that!
Here’s a few of my ‘accidental’ images from this week.
