in highschool i was photo editor for my schools newspaper which means i was taught from people who worked in the magazine and newspaper industry about what the whole point of visual storytelling is and how the way you take a photo can really push that message. so reading the 20 ways to make better photographs was a refresher page from what i was taught and i take more and more photos im starting to realize more and more how each “rule” really does change the way you take and see photographs. For me being a “retired” editor i was taught to keep an eye out for literally anything because something is always happening even if you dont pay attention to it something is always happening anywhere. Which goes back to paying attention to the moment, the more I just sit or stand somewhere the more im starting to realize that everything is constantly happening i just dont pay attention to it. an example of this would be the picture of the pink flowers, if i hadent looked up i would have never noticed the three flowers stacked together.
