451 Concrete

Here’s the thing that I am about to do, is kind of blame other people for my rubbish photography, not the equipment, it’s the location. Invariably, the book or magazine you are reading will contain superb pictures, taken in spectacular locations at absolutely the right time of the day. They just make my pictures look utterly feeble. It’s not my fault that I don’t have access to the same wonderful locations that these famous photographers do.

Of course, it is all absolute bunkum. A bad picture is a bad picture, regardless of location, equipment or photographer, and I would be the first to say that the header picture is not a good picture – in my eyes anyway, exposure, lines, composition are all really not very good.

I would be very curious to know what potential a good photographer would see in something like this. Perhaps a different time of day, a different point of view may all offer potential for a better image. What about editing? That may allow us to do something with the location.

There is a whole range of videos on YouTube relating to photography in a small town. Mostly American of course, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, there isn’t (at least from a photography perspective) any difference between UK or US concrete, except perhaps scale. I have a habit of looking at the wide scene, perhaps if I focussed down on things and got in a bit closer, I would find scenes that are perfectly acceptable. It’s all down to the eye, isn’t? What you see.

There, it isn’t their fault at all is it? It’s me needing to get my seeing eye sorted.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
