What if every time you go out, you come back with a photo for your wall? You could be on the way to work, or going to the movies, or just going grocery shopping. You obviously need to have a camera on you, but most importantly you need to look at the familiar with a new eye. We'll be focusing on how to make your everyday life a photo session without any planning. I've been practically doing the same for years, and all you need is to be a keen tourist in your own town. We'll be walking around and trying to convert everyday familiar scenes to noteworthy photographs.
