Portraits; Athens County Fair




I keep playing with portraits like these. I feel like I'm getting somewhere, but I also think I need to be more deliberate about such things. Matt Eich and I spoke the other day and we decided upon a new challenge- take every photo we see. Driving around and walking around, I probably see 15+ things a day that would make an interesting photograph. There's always the excuses--"Well, the light's not nice, I don't have the right lens, and I don't want to bother them."

Hopefully I'll be posting more, too.

I guess these stem off of that, and how I constantly observe the things and people that surround me in search of the one that makes it click.

thats a brilliant idea...you would think it would be common sense to photographers to shoot what you see, but i suffer from the same excuse making and procrastination.
