Photograph everything. Go out in early in the morning, and photograph everything from every possible angle. Make as many mistakes as possible. Thousands of mistakes. Hundreds of thousands of mistakes. Don’t try to take the right photograph. Try to take as many photographs as you can. Then go home, look at all your pictures. Decide what YOU like. Don’t decide what’s correct. Decide what YOU think is beautiful. Go to sleep. Wake up. Repeat. By doing this, you’ll develop your own style that makes you happy and gives you a sense of freedom and discovery.
