Probably The Best Post I’ve Read About Photography This Year!
If you’ve followed me for any time at all you’ve heard me rave about the photography ofÂ Bill Fortney.Â He’s been kind of a mentor to me over the years and has taught me an awful lot (and I’ve been blessed to have taught some landscape workshops alongside him over the years as well).
A couple of day’s ago Bill wrote what I think it probably the best article I’ve read about photogaphy this year, and definitely one of my top picks ever. I shared his post earlier this week on Google+ and here are some of the comments from readers:
> “I think this may be one of the best photoblog posts I have ever read. It simply speaks volumes.”
> “Wonderful & inspiring article. Gets me back on track as to why I love photography.”
> “You’re right it did made me think about my own photography.. Â truly wonderful article.”
> “An insightful treatise! Thank you for sharing it with us. I have tried to adhere to the principles mentioned and am inspired by the well written reminder.”
> “Incredibly profound post!!”
> “Thank you to Bill FortneyÂ (re his “Why Bother?” blog post) for this authentic share. ”
> “I happened upon this post by Bill Fortney today and thought I need to share this with all of my fellow photographers out there who may be in the same situation. Â …”
> “AnÂ excellentÂ post by Bill, now he has a new fan I had not seen his work before”
> “I’m so glad I stopped to read it.”
Bill’s post is called “Why Bother” and I promise you, if you read it you’ll be glad you did Â —- it really has the power to change the way you feel about your own photography and why “Why we bother” at all.
