i love bad photography

Composed on

my favorite photos end up being the ones that are


lacking a "proper"


just the sky

rapid snapshots of the freeway taken from the backseat of my parent's car

not "good"

i want to keep taking "bad" photos and i encourage you to do the same, if you feel so inclined.

my interest in photography and desire to improve my skills sort of backfired because i started to devalue my own "imperfect" photos. then i realized that some of my favorite photos are not the ones that will earn followers on instagram, clients for your business, praise from your photography professor

i like the photos we have from what i'll call the "consumer film era". or photos from the few times that people use disposables, like camping trips. imperfect snapshots of an imperfect world

bad photos make great time capsules
