I’ve just finished posting a picture a day for a month on Instagram (@janebirdsellphotography). This forced me to come up with an image I felt was worth posting each day, often after a snatched five or ten minutes of photography. Which made me realize that while my work’s never going to be revolutionary, it pleases me, and is worth sharing.
Simple photography makes me happy: just being there and really looking at something. I’m not interested in technical perfectionism – just in having an excuse to slow down and connect.
So my new plan for this blog, starting next Friday, is to post an image each week. One that’s sparked for me out of those I’ve taken that week or come across while sorting through existing work. I’ve now got two lightweight, versatile cameras, so it’s easy to go and do some photography. Hope you enjoy what I find.
