The true key to photography, is seeing, and the true key to seeing, is too look.
Whereas it’s always good to go out with a specific idea for a shot, then to find something that fits that idea, examine it, refine it and capture it….
….lets be honest, it’s also fun to go out with a camera and look for things you might want to shoot!
But where do you look? Well obviously where you’re going, that’s always important! I’d imagine that you also look left and right, you perhaps look down too.
But the there’s a couple of places you might forget to look, places that can yield great results.
One is behind you, seriously – the path you’ve just walked will look completely different in reverse view, but the brain has a habit of discounting where it’s looked already.
But the other place that it’s worth looking, is up! The world doesn’t stop at your eye level, and looking up can find you a shot that you might of missed!
In fact you might even find something looking right back at you!
A lot of time and effort goes into this site.. If you like what you see, and/or if I’ve helped you then perhaps you’d considering making a donation?

One way you could help me is if you want to buy ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING from Amazon, (that’s anything; cameras, books, shoe polish, whatever) if you do so using the links below, then I will receive a small percentage of your expenditure, and you will pay NO MORE than you would have paid anyway.
This will also work if you USE THOSE LINKS to click through to your own country.
To do this, click a link above, scroll to the bottom of the page, then select your country from the drop down menu, as shown below
Another way you could help, especially if you don’t like Amazon, but do like me, is by making a donation
The donate button is in the top right hand corner or can be found on the link below
Thanks Very Much!
