Going through your photos has been so enjoyable thus far and I’ve loved exploring the world through your images and lenses.
As I was developing this assignment, I thought a lot about my childhood. Growing up with geologist parents made for interesting trips and conversations. They encouraged me to pick up rocks, study animal tracks and climb up to the top of hills to get a better viewpoint. It soon happened that the curiosity about the world around me became a tool when I eventually became a photographer. This inquisitiveness and inspiration about the way life works is, to me, the heart of exploration photography.
The photos that have stood out from this assignment so far are the ones that ring true to the fun and curiosity of exploring as a kid. They open doors into worlds that you never imagined and leave you with a sense of awe. You all have submitted images with interesting angles and scenes that have allowed the viewer to feel like a witness to the scene.
Please continue to keep this fun in mind as you all submit images. Remember the rule of thirds and don’t be afraid to shoot into the sun. Lastly, the captions are just as much a part of the image as the content itself, so try to take time to write a detailed or thoughtful story or description.
Again, great work; I look forward to seeing your images — good luck!
