  • July's Topic: Water
  • Where is your interest in water? Remember that water has many forms, from steam to tears and ice or fog. Water flows, flies, crushes and caresses.

    “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
    Elliott Erwitt

    Helpful Techniques: To reduce glare on all types of water, use a polarizing adapter on your lens or hold your polarized sunglasses over your mobile phone camera lens.
