Finding interesting subjects in a familiar environment!!

3 weeks 1 day ago - 3 weeks 1 day ago #666338 by Nikon Shooter

Without having an "anewed" vision on daily life, no couple could
make it over a short time span in their relation… but people have
their own way to surprise, seduce, or even enchant. That said, one
has to stay opened to being surprised, seduced, even enchanted.

After reading your post, I went quickly through the house and gar-

Even when I spot something that I suspect could make an interesting picture, it's still difficult to look at the resulting photo and judge it on its merits as a picture instead of seeing it as e.g. 'just that gnarly old tree down the road'.How do you deal with this ? How do I find interesting subjects in what to me feels like the boring mid-sized city where I've lived since forever ? Is it at all possible to learn to 'see anew' in an environment you could find your way around blindfolded ?


IMNSHO, this is where you should be to learn to see. Yes, you can learn. It takes work. Take your time to really look around. Find a scene and work it. Really work it. Consider the story: what might the subject be telling you that you wish to capture and relay?

You don't have to create a masterpiece, but you can train your eye to be observant.
