A Top Photography Tip

Marc Silber shares his "biggest secret" when it comes to photography over at the Digital Photography School blog:
"Take your dang camera with you everywhere!"
I couldn't agree more! You just never know when a photo opp will show up. As an artist I see beauty in everything. If I could, I'd take pictures of anything and everything! A friend of mine pokes fun at me because as we were walking down the street one day, I stopped to take at least 10 pictures of random things...

"The Asian side of you is coming out!"

"You look like a tourist!"

Even if you don't consider yourself to be a "photographer", I still recommend carrying a camera with you at all times. Any pictures you take can always be edited in Photoshop or Picasa. Even if you don't know how to edit or fix photos, I'm sure you can find an artist friend to help you out! Or better yet, why not buy a book and teach yourself?

As a result of carrying my camera around everywhere I go, I was able to capture these phenomenal shots...

This photo was taken as my friend and I were driving over the Coronado Bridge...

I was in Borders bookstore doing work one day and liked how the light was coming in and creating these diagonal lines...

Last Halloween my boyfriend and I went to watch a local band play in a bar. This sign caught my eye...

I was walking around the neighborhood one day and came across these signs...
