Why this Blog

So why am I writing this blog and why am I posting it here? It’s not a question anyone has actually asked me but I know it’s a question burning to be asked.

Let me start by saying that I have never thought of myself as a very good writer. So maybe the best reason to write this blog is to become a better writer, which is true but it really goes much deeper than just improving my wringing skills. It’s been said that if you want to become a better writer, you need to write about things you know about. Not so long ago I felt knew a lot about photography and composition but the farther I go in my development as a photographer and artist, the more I realize that I’ve only scratched the surface. By committing my thoughts to the written word and then posting it for people to read, it forces me to discover the true meaning of what I’ve created. They say that the best way to learn something is to teach it, so this my way of doing just that.
