13/365 – Sometimes Perfect Is The Enemy Of Good

Someone I love often says these words to me. I tend to be a little bit of a perfectionist, and of course, I have never gotten perfection. I am learning just that through this project; perfect is the enemy of good.

I had already decided yesterday what I would shoot for today’s post, but I would have liked it to be a little better. In the end, I like it, it think it’s good, and it’s okay to have good.

12/365 – Trees In Motion

                                                          

“Sharpness is a bourgeois concept.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

As I said yesterday, being in the country forces me to get creative. We are literally in the middle of nowhere here, other than wildlife that you see once in a while, there is no action.

I woke up early, the sky was very dark with clouds rolling. I went outside and started shooting. Looking around at my environment, which I have been seeing for 18 years, I tried to see things as if for the first time. Then I had an idea: ICM (intentional camera movement) to photograph the trees around me, it might produce something interesting. What a pleasure I had, hope you like it too.
