I took 30 photos yesterday of random things we saw. A small aircraft. A fence. Rain coming down in sheets. We didn’t catch the rainbow in time, and we didn’t see any magically lit horses or grain silos either. In the moment, I wasn’t stoked about anything I was shooting, but I still made an effort to look for compositions and capture the colors and movement of the land. When I crouched down and pointed my 70-200mm in between a section of rusted fence line, my internal dialogue was, “Eh, its not amazing, but it’s worth a shot.” When editing in Lightroom later, I was glad I took the time to capture this. It’s not a tornado or a supercell, which is what I came here to photograph, but I love this image just as much as I enjoyed watching the vegetation flow with the wind. If you want to grow as an artist and create things outside of the trendy, safe zone that sets you apart from others, you need to get out and shoot even if it’s NOT the picture you were hoping for. Challenge yourself both when you have a camera in your hand...AND when you’re deciding what to post here. Likes and follows are great if you’re keen on turning your page into an online billboard, but if you really want people to respect your work, I encourage you to take risks and try new things, even if it frustrates you and you can’t master it right away. I have never successfully shot lightning, and I’m hoping to get it right on this trip. Still, I’m aware of the possibility that I might fail, and that this is all part of the learning curve. And that’s ok. There is still plenty of other awesome stuff to see in the world, and learning is growing. And growth is good. Time to hit the road and see what sort of wild weather we find today...
