After spending a lot of time in Japan and getting use to the culture shock, I've finally begun to see things differently.
It actually helps when shooting photography when everything doesn't feel new and interesting.When your overwhelmed by the excitement of traveling, it's hard to resist spamming photos of things that are new and cool, but that don't necessarily hold much meaning or character. But still, it happens, probably even with the best photographers and I'm actually ok with this.
That's is, after all, what our cameras are for. Half of using my camera is to make art, tell stories, captures moods, the other half is to remember things. The trick is finding the balance, and learning to switch gears.
