Picture This

Over the last few years I got ‘serious’ about my photography.

By that I mean  I paid more attention to – as my screenwriting instructor taught- Space, Light and Texture.  That actually applied to writing but it works for pictures too.

I even started to haunt Art Galleries and found discovered Franz Von Stuck and Hammershoi  and on a few occasions I even watched art students working on their craft.

So what did I do with the results of my hard work?

Why, I stuck them on my Facebook page where they were buried under posts I didn’t write and pictures of talking cats and video of puppies learning to howl like Wolves and comics- I love the comics:

A few weeks ago I re-discovered Instagram.

The only rule I have there is, the pictures I post are actually pictures that I took.

They may not be perfect, they may not make a lot of sense but my Instagram pictures are snapshots of my real life .

So there are pictures of my dog, of places I visit and images of things that caught my eye.

When I started to take my writing seriously I learned that if you have to explain your stories you probably should go back and do a little editing because a story should be able to explain itself.

My Instagram pictures are the same- they tell their own story and they don’t need me to explain them in great detail.

I’d like my Instagram account to be a real photo album with real stories to tell- that is my goal. Let’s see how it goes, shall we?
