What do you WANT to shoot, but haven't
So what is it you want to shoot but for whatever reason something has held you back..and more importantly why haven't you shot that yet? To put this into context. I shoot people in very carefully constructed set ups. Shooting architecture is something i'd love to try or editorial people stuff. I put this under technique so that those who wanna shoot something other than what they do can connect and discuss the necessary techniques to shoot what they want to try.

I'd like to shoot more Architecture, outdoors and indoors. What's holding me back? The lack of good architecture in this small town. I suppose I could try to focus on old homes and the details that went into making them. That's something you don't see in today's construction, so yeah, just plain laziness on my part there.13 March 2014
More Seascapes in B+W and long, very long exposures. All that is holding me back there is the lack of a boat to get to locations that are not already shot to death here in Nova Scotia. Weather is sometimes an issue as well. I like shooting in the fog but when it's so dense you can't see more than 50 feet doing landscapes or seascapes is a bust.
1. Beautiful landscapes in different countries, so I should travel more.13 March 2014
2. In those landscape shots I want to work with people. People working, sitting, showing emotion. So I want to combine landscapes more with people.
3. People working in their every day jobs, like a farmer, or people in a factory etc etc.
For me...........I don't know yet. I have only been taking photos for a few months and I feel like there is a niche for me, but I haven't figured out what it is yet. All I know is that I am really enjoying it.12 March 2014
I Want Always want to Shoot Great architecture details12 March 2014
Love That, I will Put one here that i took a time Ago
But in Portugal there are a few details in modern architecture
Great thread/post... For me?? I want to shoot folks on the street. Not as a "voyeur" - passing by, and go "click". That's done too may times - and too often. Rather - I want to "shoot" them so that their story can be "told". Each individually - and collectively "together"...12 March 2014
By comparison - with all the children I shot in Haiti - they all know me. And I can tell their "story", because - I know their story... So, I can tell it through the lens...
But for others? Those who live "outside" our social norms and "off the grid" - no I don't. It's a hard step to take from a technical standpoint and more importantly - an emotional standpoint.
So - yes. I want to do that.. And for every image? I want the viewer to look, linger and ask "why". But - I'm not there yet...
And another? Go to Alaska and simply photograph....
As for architecture? I do that every day... Compared to what you do, or I want to do? Architectural is easy.. Trust me...
Best to you!
I shoot people too, that´s one thing that I like to do :) And I think that there are still so many things that still wait for me to experiment - I don´t care too much about landscapes or architecture or cityscapes, I´d probably like to shoot more of the close up portraits, more of the "constructed set ups" kind of people photography and in general, experiment more with it! :)11 March 2014
