Shoot all the time.
Let’s have a quick look at two very different photographers who shoot a lot. And you know what, some of what they shoot likely sucks but it doesn’t matter. They’re shooting and they’re getting better. Shoot that shit!
If you’re not Daniel Peet’s friend on Facebook, I think you should be (and really, there’s no excuse, he’s got over 2,400 of them). Daniel’s got numerous albums and most of the work he finds during regular walks through the streets, alleys and backyards where he lives. I’m guessing his camera is always with him and he is always shooting:
Lee Towndrow also seems to be keeping it fresh with lots of new and varied work. Wicked. This is just a little sample so be sure to go to his site to see the breadth of his talent. I think it’s obvious from the work that he’s majorly into exploring and experimenting with his camera- not his surroundings, like Daniel, but in a conceptual way.
So just a quick recap: Just keep shooting.
