Today I relaxed when I walked. I didn´t know what pictures I would shot, and what kind of pictures I would have when I got home. Maybe it helps to not think and just be relaxed, because today I got three portraits, and it was just smiling faces. Nobody got angry with me and asked what I was doing.
I think it is smart to have automatic settings on my camera when I do streetphotography. So today, I used the “P”. Then the shutter and f-stop do the work, and I do not need to think about it. Here is the result of the days photowalk:
There are so many pictures out there, in the world, at Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, in photo clubs, everywhere. Maybe you wonder how to express your voice. You look at a picture someone else have taken and found it amazing. What did this photographer do? You ask yourself “Why are not my pictures in the same mood?” You want to go out and do the same, have the same feeling as the photographs gave you, but you are not the photographer that took the picture you liked. You are yourself. You shoot the shot you do. You have to do your own pictures, not try to do the same as another photographer do. You can admire another photographer, of course, but you can´t copy her images. Because she looks at the environment different from you. You have to find your own way to do a picture. You have to find your voice.
The picture of the day from my photowalk in Oslo. I choose to keep the colors because I like the repeated colors in the photo.
