oemal is a Creative Traveling De-Clutterer
Well, when you’re in a beautiful and amazing place I guess it makes most people want to take pictures, right? I must admit I kind of reveled in the fact that my equipment and my understanding of the mechanics of photography and my camera probably made my pictures better than most of the point-and-shoot snapshots shooters I saw around the place, though! :)
I always wanted to roll my eyes at the people who only photograph touristy things, but I have to admit that these sorts of places get me excited about photography more than anything else. And I wasted years doing stupid student work that tried to be original or interesting or dark or creative, and it left me bitter and burned out. So I guess I should take my enjoyment where I find it, and get over what I thought I should be because of photo school.
