 Taking soup out of the frig.

Taking soup out of the frig.

Here is something new for you to try. For one week, starting now, take 12 photos a day with you smart phone. Photograph ordinary things that catch your eye. Don't judge if they are photo worthy. You could take all 12 first thing in the morning like the Julia Cameron practice of morning pages. Or you could take them during the course of the day.

The purpose is simply to shift your attention so you are noticing visual elements all the time everywhere, and acting on it by capturing an image.  To BE a photographer is to SEE. And to see is something you don't just do when you pick up your camera. You can see like a photographer by noticing the small magical moment presented to you every day.  Why not try it and let me know how it goes for you.
