Photography, just like any other skill, means that if you want to stay on top, you need to be constantly learning.
Recently, I thought that there was not much more that I could learn, but after being on a 3 day course recently, I'm not as smart as I think I am. Very humbling.
Many photographers tell you that you need to understand the rules of photography, the most common and simple one is the rule of thirds.
They will also tell you that the rules are there to be broken.
At the moment, I am trying hard to learn more about the magic of light, and how I can use my camera to capture the light.
Like any learning process, it takes time but I am really enjoying looking at everything with a photographic eye.
But like any good photographer, I will apply the "rules are there to be broken"-rule when it makes me look good.
Camera shake? I prefer to call it, Oh I don't know... "An artistic quiver"?
Out of Focus? Lets call it from now on "Gaussian blur!"
Or, you could just convert to black and white, and everyones happy!
Enjoy these pictures.
