Lets take a moment and talk about having fun and experimenting. I am a photographer. I want to show case some of my less elegant photos.
I couldn’t get to my better photos without the experimenting and having some fun. And I have to say that experimenting and seeing the result created some awesome laughs! There was frustrations, not gonna lie, but that is okay. Experimenting is how things come about, and inspires trying different things.
Learning from the film world as well, you learn from very careful experimenting. Making note of every setting, and learning from each frame. From these shots that I took in Canmore, most of the images were on unusable. But I learned from each attempt and just had fun with my husband. This picture was my attempt of outlining the mountain range with long exposure light photography. Obviously it didn’t work and afterwards I had a good laugh. I didn’t attempt this again. And that’s okay…I might again one day!
I also think its important to show case that none of us are perfect. Yes there are some very talented people out there that know what they are doing. But it is good for our mental health to realize we all make mistakes and that it can take time to get a good shot.
So get out there and have some fun! And if you want let me know some of your fun experiments. If you want to see more of my work and another experiment check out my Instagram.
