Make a simple picture

When was the last time you simplified your shooting and used only one lens? Not a zoom, either, a regular one focal length lens. How about putting on a regular 50 mm lens and use you mind, eyes and feet to create some images this weekend? Use your mind to pre-visualize the image, your eyes to find the photo and your feet to "zoom" in and out for best composition. Make pictures simply, but don't make simple photos -- work at it, compose, see, stretch and push yourself to see out of the box. The Pittsburgh weather this weekend is suppose to be totally awesome. Take a photo walk, even if it's only in your back yard, and make some fresh images. It's spring, time for life to begin anew. Make it your visual life, too.
