Photographing the Everyday

Photo Schoolhouse in the Rain

Recently*, a podcast that I listen to fielded a question about staying photographically motivated. The question was – and I’m paraphrasing – “Help! I’m a photographer living in boring Nebraska. What can I possibly photograph?” The podcasters gave some advice, but I think there is more to say to this photographer who, like me, lives… Continue reading Photographing the Everyday
