Something I have not done a lot of is landscapes. As we move into milder weather, this is something I would like to focus on. I am drawn naturally to details and close-ups, loving my macro lens and the endless possibilities of shallow depth-of-field. This is something I have no intention of leaving behind.
It is time, though, for me to challenge myself with my photography.
My mind is already there, imagining how I could capture a shoreline, a wooded trail, or a cityscape. I need to discover a way to photograph the vastness of our world while keeping with my need to simplify. It must be true not necessarily to the way it is, but to the way I see it. To the way it makes me feel.
This spring, then, I will begin. I will choose a shorter lens and really look at the wide open spaces.
I will find the details in the big picture.
