What not to photograph

Whenever I need a reminder of what types of photographs I’d like avoid making, I pay a visit to the popular page on 500px.

To sum up…

  • Long exposures of water
  • Star trails
  • Over-processed semi-nudes of impossible women
  • Flowers
  • Bokeh for the sake of bokeh
  • Birds (eagles especially), also insect macros
  • HDRs of anything

These can all make for lovely photographs, and I’m guilty of all of them, but they’re just not my style.
