Finding Interesting Images in Ordinary Places

We don't need to travel to scenic places to find good subjects for photographs. I've taken many photographs that I like, within a few miles or even a few blocks of my home.

How do we find such images? It's mostly a matter of learning to look carefully at the details in what we see around us. When we've found a detail that will work as a subject, we then need to be creative in finding the right composition.

The Power of Shooting Abbreviated Subject Matter

Less is more. We always hear that, don’t we? But how exactly does this concept apply in photography? 

Oftentimes it means composing an image based around simplicity, where minimal subject matter exists in the frame and everything that doesn’t communicate the intended feel or message of the image is eliminated.
