Taking Great Shots on a Road: Being Free

I know, it sounds perfectly to be travelling, taking shots and if you are selling them later, even making money at once.

On the other hand, it is very difficult to achieve that when one is travelling with friends or family who are usually not so immersed in photography as me. To be honest, I rarely travel alone but... continue reading

Stop shooting people, start taking photographs

Shooting people is hard. Subjects who are not used to have their picture taken are usually uneasy about spending time with a photographer. Even people with some experience being photographed don't enjoy it that much.

One important element is the fact that people should trust that the photographer knows what he or she is doing. The subject should... continue reading

Every time I took that break I felt guilty and forced myself to make or process more photos but everything was going very hard and I made many mistakes.
