Can You See the Big Picture?

April 21, 2010

We all like to think that we’re able to “see the big picture”. Myself included. Yet somehow, I have rarely photographed the “big picture”.

Looking at my shots from over the years, the train is predominant in 95% of the images. There’s nothing wrong with that type of photograph, but I wish I had taken more shots that show the overall scene.

So I’ve started taking more shots that show the “big picture”,  where the train is but a small part of the overall environment. Kind of like a landscape photograph that happens to have a train running through it…
