Never lower your camera, never quit practicing. I watched a video with a frontline guitar player the other day, yup 3-4 hours practice every day, he said. Why would photography be different? There’s always something out there, dog, cat, mountains, flats, um, flat light? Shoot HDR’s in flat light. Long lens, wide lens, wide open, compensate, flash, handheld, tripod, hdr, full sun, cloudy, mid-day, sunset… endless variations. Fantastic world this photography one.
