Part of what photography does so well is to dispense with preconceived notions, reeducate, and reshape one’s thinking and attitudes about places and things; even history.

The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.

Shoot a lot of pictures. Experiment. Don’t go out with preconceptions of what a picture will look like. That will block you from being receptive to something new and exciting.

Throwback Thursday and Thong Thursday combo with model Roxie shot by el Jong.
Shot with a 24-70mm on a 5D Mark II lit by an Alien Bees B800 with a silver beauty dish light modifier. I was a little heavy on the cyan on this one for that vintage look. Post-processing time: 5 minutes.

Photography is like angling. You get very excited, like a predator, when you discover a big subject and when you are on your own, in the field. It is clear that the subject must be in harmony with your own outlook.

Once the amateur’s naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. Every professional should remain always in his heart an amateur.

Eventually I discovered for myself the utterly simple prescription for creativity; be intensely yourself. Don’t try to be outstanding; don’t try to be a success; don’t try to do pictures for others to look at - just please yourself.

The unconscious obsession that we photographers have is that wherever we go we want to find the theme that we carry inside ourselves.
