There are lots of days that I make photos, but don’t really have anything to blog about, so those images just sit on my hard drive. I do not like to flood Facebook with dozens of images of the same subject, or show EVERY image I take. That is a major pet-peeve of mine.
Photography Tip of the Day – Do Not Upload EVERY Photo You Take
No one wants to see EVERY image you’ve taken on an outing or your last vacation. Pick your 10-20 best shots, ones that make you saw “WOW” and upload those for your friends or viewers to enjoy. Another good idea is to wait a day or so after your outing so you’re not so excited about everything you’ve taken. Many times will Cindy and I get back from a day on the boat with images still fresh and exciting in my mind, that I do want to show every single one. But if I wait a few days, I tend to go back and look through them with a different mind set and I only pick out the really good ones.
Those others, the mediocre ones that dont give me the “WOW” factor tend to get culled.
Here are a few images I’ve taken this past month that haven’t really made the rounds, but I thought it would be fun to share. Let me know what you think or if any of them strike your fancy or on the opposite end of the spectrum, if any of them are horrible and you think I should go back to the drawing board with my composition.
This is the backside (South-Eastern Side) of Atsena Otie Key. I loved the way the big sandbar looked at lowtide from the air. Interestingly tidbit of info: that little pond you see just inland from the bottom section of beach is a fresh water spring.
