Work less, produce more.
I’m never so enthralled with still imagery, as when I flâneur and resist the yoke of doing something.

The morning after a winter snow storm. Jan 11 2017. Aloha, OR. ~ Paul Ottaviano
Reflections in the mirror. ~ Paul Ottaviano
It’s a good creative exercise to see how many ways you can shoot the same subject. I like to photograph the same window, just to see how different I can do it each time.
Above are two photos of my home studio window. Both while I stood in exactly the same spot. The results are completely different.
One obviously is the outdoor scene on a snow day. The window screen is visible, too.
The second picture is my reflection in the window, with my wall and portrait background visible. The rain water on the window shows us what is outside. If you look close, you’ll see trees as well.
Wherever you are, there is always something to photograph, and when you open your mind to it there are myriad ways to shoot the same thing.
