Unlearn Photography

I imagine you’ve taken some photography classes, perhaps even workshops. At the very least you’ve devoured the blog posts.

You may have spent a lot of money, but I’m betting you’ve definitely spent a lot time reading about photography.

Today, I have no grand solutions for you. I just have a few questions.

How much about photography could you let go of today? Remember, the more you let go of, the more creative freedom you’ll rescue and the more time you’ll have to…you know…photograph.

How many of the “rules” have never really applied? And, how many have applied, but never really mattered?

Unlearning photography may be just as rewarding as learning photography.
