We all have a framework that we live by. An outline that guides our focus, attention and behaviour -to the things that interest and inspire us as well as the things that appal.
When our framework is solid enough to carry us through good days as well as the not so good days – solid enough so that those around us can also see it clearly and identify our values and beliefs, our lives are more content and congruent in action and attitude.
The following notes are my interpretation of the ‘tips’ reinforcing what Ming suggested for the photographer on daily post (Tuesday June, 19, 2013):
- “Observe a scene first before lifting your camera to your eye”. In my world … stop and think before you act or react to the situation before you!
- “Ask yourself: What is the subject? What will you (not) include in the frame”? In my world … consider your higher purpose in life and what your focus will be in regard to the subject before you!
- “Look for natural lines or frames in the shot to guide the viewer’s eye”. In my world … accept what is the reality for the other person and identify the good in each and everyone you meet!
- “Try different angles: Get low on the pavement. Look down from above”. In my world … Consider life from the other persons perspective or what it might be like to be them or walk in their shoes for a day!
