Think about you had been compelled to decide on. Both you needed to do all of your future images in only one single location, or each picture you’re taking must be at a brand new place, for the remainder of your life. What would you select?
Fortunately, few of us are compelled to make such a definitive alternative. However all photographers should make some model of it. How extensive or slender ought to the scope of my images be? Ought to I work inside tight and well-defined boundaries – for instance solely explicit sorts of photographs, in just a few particular location? Or ought to I throw a wider web, attempting a little bit of every part? Possibly seascapes sooner or later, macros of flowers the opposite.
I name these two approaches The Properly and The Subject, going deep or going extensive. I consider most photographers do a little bit of each, and many people most likely will not be even excited about it. We simply shoot issues we’re drawn to, and typically we’re drawn to the identical issues and the identical areas, and typically not.
