what makes a photographer

This morning begins the first day of a three day weekend. Which I am beyond excited for. I can’t wait to get out and be able to shoot. Unfortunately, it’s down pouring this morning and I don’t think it has an intentions to stop. Hopefully we’ll get outtomorrow or Monday to shoot in Boston for the day. This post will not have any photographs. I didn’t shoot a lot and don’t have anything to show for it. I’m hoping the rain stops at some point today and I can get out and take some photos. 

On another note - I read an article yesterday that talks about standing out as a photographer. What makes a photographer when everyone has access to a camera? This is something that I think about a lot because it seems to be getting harder and harder to stand out as a photographer. Something that was mentioned in the article is that there will just be more and more terrible photographs. Just because you were at an event and took a photograph - doesn’t mean that it’s good and it doesn’t mean that all of your photographs are good. You have to constantly be shooting in your own style. There’s a difference between seeing and looking.
