Every day you are passing by things that never catch your attention, as they are plain and ordinary. Even views and scenes can seem usual and boring, but as a photographer you need to learn how to snipe and eye-crop those little precious things and convert them into art with your camera. Whenever I teach photography I try to point out those little diamonds, and teach how to train your eye to find them in a mess of every day of the usual. Here is a great example, it is a side of a fire engine that I took a picture of the other day. The truck and the surrounding were not really that special, but when I saw all those switches and pipes, my brain cropped the image in real life and I saw this shot. Photoshop and photo editing knowledge is very helpful in such situations, as you know what you can do with the photo. A bit of color management and dodging and burning and it suddenly looks great. As a photographer you should always be alert and keep your head turning in search of the image.
