This poor guy was out photographing sunrise near San Fransisco, and two losers shot him and stole his equipment and car.  It sucks that we have to live in a world with a-holes  like this.

One way to become a better photographer is to hang out with better photographers.

Below are two comments left on my facebook photo groups last year.

 

“I am not talented enough for your group, I am only beginning to learn photography”

 

“I mistakenly checked into your talented group. My skills are not commensurate with the standards of this group”

 

I can understand that they may feel embarrassed posting their images along side of all the great images that are being posted by the members of the group, but that is how you grow as a photographer, by studying and learning from photographers who are doing it well. You surely won’t get worse by posting, and you may even get some help. So hang out with better photographers and you will become a better photographer.

Everyone likes going to the national parks for the great scenery, and some macro opportunities, but I find more and better stuff to shoot for macro at my local parks. One problem with the big parks is the vast acreage to cover. It's hard to find the good stuff when you have so much land, and so little time to explore if you only have a few days to a week. With your local parks you have the chance to shoot everyday if you like, and the more time you get to explore an area, the more you find.

Sometimes we get an amazing shot, and when people ask how it happened, your answer could be, I was in just in the right place at the right time.  So how do we get to that place.  Simple, by spending more time out shooting.  The more time we spend out in the field, the better the chances we'll end up in the right place at the right time.

 

I was shooting this Chicory flower, and as I was viewing the flower though the camera's viewfinder, I see the Hoverfly enter the frame, and I quickly fired off a shot.  He was in perfect position of my point of focus.  Being in the right place at the right time.
