How to be a photographer in no easy steps

In by Wyatt on August 4, 2014 at 9:53 am

It’s as simple and impossible as looking at light. Our eyes see light, but our brains see objects. If you can turn off your brain, and just see light, you’re halfway to being a great photographer.

Light is soft in the early morning. Its color changes throughout the day, from cool to warm, to cool again. It bathes faces and bounces around rooms. When you see only light, objects become shapes and blobs that move over each other. Roads become two-dimensional lines. Reflections appear in unlikely places.

Then you’re seeing like a camera. And then you can take a photo!
