Almost like fire.

The question remains.

How?

The answer is always the same.

Study. Practice. Study. Practice. Study. Practice.

That’s how you learn and improve no matter what it is that you do.  That’s how you get good, or even great, at anything.

Here’s a story. When I was a young man, I was a semi-gamer. I wasn’t playing computer games at the level that real gamers do, but that’s how I spent my down time. Photoshop was a new tool back then. I decided that it was the tool of the future.  I gave up gaming and filled my down time studying and practicing post production. Not only did I learn what has become essential software for photographers, designers and other visual creatives, but I learned what I didn’t want to do. It brought clarity to the way that I work.

Study. Practice. Study. Practice. Study. Practice.

The picture. Well now. I was out on a walk. I passed by a pick up truck. There were leaves in the bed of the truck. I saw them. I didn’t think twice. I photographed them. I processed them to get to this picture.

That’s another thing.

You can learn to see in the same way.

Study. Practice. Study. Practice. Study. Practice.
