Get Every Last Drop by Dan Dan The Binary Man
A new year is upon us, DC, and some of us couldn’t be more relieved that 2010 is dead and buried. Whether you believe in making New Year’s resolutions or not, this is a good time to reflect on the past year, take stock of your life as it exists today, and figure out how the next chapter unfolds. Will you maintain the status quo or will you take your life in a completely different direction? If you love everything about your life then I commend you (and think that you might need psychiatric help), but if you feel like you’re simply going through the motions and need a little spark in your life, now, and any other day, is the perfect time for change.
We here at We Love DC look forward to seeing our city through your lenses, from your point of view, with your eyes. We love seeing what you were up to over the weekend, what you did for the holidays, and your coverage of events here in DC. But I challenge you to step up your game this year and start pushing the boundaries of your photography.
Buy a point and shoot or rangefinder camera and take it with you everywhere you go so you never miss ‘that shot’. Buy a new prime lens and see how it changes your shooting style. Stop someone on the street, ask them if you can take their picture, and tell their story. Take a photography class, or even a painting, drawing, or dance class to get out of your comfort zone and get your creative juices flowing. Instead of shooting anything and everything that you find interesting, focus your efforts on just a handful of subjects to hone your skills and to create a solid body of work.
This world has so much to offer so make sure you get every last drop. You won’t regret it, and neither will we.
