I am not a musician but I often think that being a photographer is a lot like being a musician. You do it for reasons that aren’t readily apparent to others. You have to practice often. Often you specialize–maybe you only like jazz, or if you are a photographer you mostly only do macro.
As a photographer, I find myself taking photos often. Tonight I wandered around and took about 30. Sometimes I find myself really inspired by what I see. Tonight I was not–I just muddled through.
This was probably my best shot of the night–an ant tending to a treehopper nymph. I have photographed the same species before, sometimes with better results.
But I got some practice. Maybe tomorrow night I will be more inspired.
