Inspired Eye Article

The newest issue of Inspired Eye is out and I have an article in it about photographic clichés. It’s a fabulous magazine and it has very few ads in it. Just photos and interviews with many photographers and how they got into photography, what inspires them and much more. It is definitely worth paying for and reading.

“Clichés are like covers of classic songs. You are still learning your craft. That’s a good thing! The challenge is to do it better next time. Art can be deceptive. It often looks easier than it is. It’s good to go back and review your work in context by the subjects you choose. It’s a good method of assessing your progress.”

Street Photography Tip – Don’t worry, be happy!

Street Photography Tip – Don’t worry, be happy!

Your photos are always a reflection of who you are. And your mood always has an influence on your work. I do at times need to challenge myself on the streets to get outside of myself and be available to what’s going on around me. I often get invigorated by the people on the street. Street photography is about humanity. It’s about the people! When you smile and when you’re open to the environment people respond in a like manner. So don’t worry and be happy and your photos will be better for it! Happy shooting! Republished from Issue 8 of the Shoot New York City Newsletter. You can subscribe here.
