Developing A Photographer’s Eye

 

Now that I am trying my hand at photography, I sometimes see beauty where I’m sure I would not have before.

I think photography is addictive.  I just hope the government will do one of their studies about it and find out that taking pictures burns more calories than the treadmill, lowers your cholesterol better than any medicine and smooths the skin better than Botox!

    Great eye. I would love for photography to be better then the treadmill. I would be more dedicated then I am now if that were the case.

    I’m not sure about calorie-burning, though I love the idea. I do think it’s has a calming effect though.. blood pressure-lowering capabilities perhaps. That’s a great shot, Sandra. Photography sure does expand the creative thought process, eh? 🙂

    I love this!!! I like any “behind the scenes” look at, well, anything. Seeing the beautiful photo and then the larger view was very gratifying.

    So lovely!

  4. During a math problem today, a student insisted that his answer was correct; that a person burns 122 calories per hour lying in bed. (The answer was 12.2.) Oh that it were true! 🙂

    Hi,Sandy!
    When taking photos, the reflections sometimes inspires us very much and shows pretty fantastic world. Good works again!

    Hilary — I have certainly experienced first-hand the calming influence. And I absolutely love finding a shot like this, that I definitely would not have noticed before! Verrry mind expanding!

    Beth — I learned from the man-in-the-sky shot that people enjoy seeing the original that a crop was taken from. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    HPKT — His lips, God’s ear! 🙂

    Chourou — I agree. Reflections can be very interesting and photo-worthy! Thank you for your encouragement.
