Challenge - Capturing the Mundane and Everyday
Our next Challenge at the Close to Home Photo Salon was very stimulating - finding beauty in the Mundane as a photographer, to pull beauty or interest out of a traditionally mundane moment or object.
Looking for inspiration from my own everyday world has taught me to see in a deeper way, I feel I am becoming more attentive, and more intentional when I photograph. To me, the key to making interesting photos of things that easily can be overlooked is to bring up some kind of emotion, atmosphere, or mood to them, otherwise, something is missing, and it's just a boring, banal photo.
This simple shift in how to look at a scene before shooting has opened up a new and beautiful way of seeing and making photographs.
