Not a technically gifted or particularly good photographer, i ask myself just three questions
Did I get the shot I wanted ?
Is the shot in focus ?
Do I like it ?
After that it's all faff.
Some people will tell you photography is art, yet those very same people will then try to control the way you take a photograph. Don't do it that way, do it this way, don't use auto, use manual, don't shoot Jpeg, shoot RAW. This is control and control is not art, freedom is art, freedom to learn and explore, to do things your own way, to make images for you and you alone, yes photography is art, but photography is also freedom.
I'm just a guy standing at the side of a race track with a digital camera or walking around with film in an old SLR. Thank you for taking some time out of your life to look at my work and please stay safe and keep taking photographs.
