One of the things I've really grown to like is trying to capture images of people doing ordinary things. It continues to be challenging to me, as I continue to feel as though I'm being intrusive. I guess I need to just get over it, as I've observed and written previously that most people don't mind at all having a picture made of them. Nonetheless, I'm usually apprehensive. I really admire other photographers skilled at making such images, and love looking at their work. I've also come to appreciate how much practice is required to make images that are interesting to look at using ordinary scenes. As has been the case on many other occasions when I've been out with my camera, I've made a lot of images that just aren't very good or interesting.
Bright sunshine can present difficulty in making images. Colors often wash out. Subjects squint. Reflections are stark. Despite that, there are some wonderful qualities. Shadows are prominent. Making silhouettes is simplified. It's possible to find places where colors are not washed out. It's great to work on the challenge and see what happens!
