One of the harder things for me to learn when taking a photos was knowing when it’s about the subject and when it’s about the location. This is a great cemetery, but this photo is about the emotion of the subject. Which makes this a “you can’t even tell where she is” photo. More impressive when “where” is in front of dumpster, but it takes the same skill everywhere.

I am now working on taking photos that are about both the subject and location. I’ve added a 35mm to my kit to help with this. It’s a challenge since up til now I’ve only used 55m and 85mm with my Sony. But it’s a lot of fun.
