How to Take Your Photography to the Next Level | Eric Kim

How to Take Your Photography to the Next Level | Eric Kim | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it

Whenever I feel frustrated in life, it is because I have a feeling of inertia. I feel like I’m not developing or growing. This often happens in my photography. I keep taking the same type of photo over and over, and I become bored. I want to innovate, to create something new. I want to take my work to the next level— but how do I do that? I feel that it is important to have a sense of gratitude with the work that we’ve done. However if you really want to take your photography to the next level, you need to not be satisfied.

'Women, Children and Loitering Men': A Glimpse at Manchester's Slums in the 1960s

'Women, Children and Loitering Men': A Glimpse at Manchester's Slums in the 1960s | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it
The streets of the Manchester slums, in which children played on concrete roads and their parents watched as terraced homes were razed to the ground in favor of new developments, became in the 1960s and two decades following like a home away from home for British street photographer Shirley Baker (1932-2014), whose middle class family owned a furniture store in Salford.

Out of Office: A Century of Presidential Vacation Photos | Photography: Inspiration & Technique | Scoop.it
For U.S. presidents—or those hoping to become them—taking time off can be risky business. Critics pounce when the leader of the free world is pictured playing golf as the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, or mutter darkly about our tax dollars, forcing POTUS to defend his right to relax a little. But ever since Teddy Roosevelt’s 1902 summer-long trip to Oyster Bay, New York, accompanied by reporters and staffers, presidential vacations have generally included wor
