    Hi Anthony and Diane,
    Bonjour from Paris :).
    I enjoy your articles. Since I’m not on FB, I’d like to comment here to thank you for excellent articles
    The idea of paying attention to what one leaves out is an excellent exercise. I personally find it a challenge to do a minalist style photo… it’s much harder than it looks !! I’d like to share that I just spent an hour wandering around my neighborhood and looking at and shooting light and dark. I think that your articles helped to get me off and running.

    Please keep up the great work !

      Thank you Barbara! I love that it helped you. Paris is a great place to photograph, I spent many months there shooting the city for a book. It’s a very special city.
      What do you like shooting the most?

    Hi Anthony – I also live by the ocean – we are so blessed to be able to see that ever-changing panorama every day! I was especially captivated by your photo through the window – messy, busy, but it totally works for me. I love taking photos of reflections, trying to capture a moment, not always succeeding, ha! Practice, practice 🙂 I’m trying to think more before I take a picture –
    As always, thank you so much for your perspective, and helpful advise.

      I think we have a lot in common! Love reflections too. And being in the moment – so important. Look forward to meeting you and shooting together in Cuba. It’ll be so much fun

    Great article, Anthony. I also prefer minimalism in photography. But it is sometimes very difficult to leave out distracting elements. I still get caught by that and then must hope that cropping will help. Looking forward to seeing you in Cuba!

      hi warren
      it is difficult, yes, but with practice and learning and the right influences it can come rapidly. The key is to always consider the whole frame before the exposure is made, that way we don’t have to think of cropping…
      Cuba Cuba! Can’t wait!!

    Hi Both
    I really enjoyed this post and feel I have learnt from it. It has made me think about the amount of time I spend on each shot and why I don’t feel able to think about how to Frame it in more detail. I need to take some time to believe that I can do this, that Ihave the right to stand and think before I shoot, rather than just scuttle away. Thanks for making me aware of how much more I can do.
