Passion – Gettin’ Down and Dirty

In honor of  Valentines Day… I decided to write about passion and gettin’ down and dirty.  That seems appropriate and trust me, not X-rated!

My dad used to tell me that a job worth doing is worth doing well.  That means going the extra yard and putting in a little (or a lot) of effort. In photography, that means more than leaning out the window of your car to take a picture with your smartphone.

At times that translates into getting up before sunrise… suffering the cold, the heat, the wind….climbing a hill a little higher when your muscles already ache… trudging through muck and mire…..getting your feet wet… groveling in the dirt…to get just the right angle in order to refine that moment you have already captured in your imagination.

It means gettin’ down and dirty –which to me is just another description for passion.  You have to LOVE the challenges of photography – and I do!

So….to get this shot of tiny bug tracks across the Great Sand Dunes National Park…..

You have to be willing to do this:

Must....Get....Just The Right Angle.....
