I have been following John’s photos for a long time. I like it a lot. He does a great job of capturing people. When I asked him about how he did, he told me that he decided to stop being ashamed of putting a camera to peoples faces. Last month I tried. I got one portrait.
This month I have continued to challenge myself with it. I’m thinking more about trying to capturing feelings and expressions. Don’t get me wrong. I still like to shoot buildings. But I’ll try to make my shooting more variated.
I’ve always been a bit put of by the skewed perspectives on some photos. I decided to learn how to correct it in post processing. It’s hard. Sometimes you overdo it and it looks unnatural. Sometimes you succeed.
I also started a Flickr group (Veckans fotouppgift) where I, every Thursday, come up with one photo mission with a deadline on Sunday.
