How not to Photograph: The Last Post

picture: Colin Pantall - The Photographer and the Subconscious Portfolio Review

There are so many more posts in the How Not to Photograph series; Night Timezzzzzz, Long Exposures, Double Exposures, Multiple Exposures, Self Exposures, Look at the Quality, Don't Look at the Quality There Isn't Any, Functional Family Values, Me-Myself-I, My Addiction and Me, My Body and Me, It's Not About You it's About Me, My Beautiful Pictures, I Really Should Get Out More Parts 8-22 and my own personal favourite If Velasquez Had a Camera He Would Be Me.

But I'm feeling kind of lazy and I've got a bonfire to burn so you'll all have to fill in the gaps.

Happy Snapping and thanks for all your visits, comments and encouragement.

Thanks Colin,
for a great series of articles. I'm sorry to see them end; they've been informative and sometimes hit uncomfortably close to what I do with my camera! Best of luck...

Thanks a lot Colin! Your series of posts have been thought-provoking in a way unusual for writing about photography. As @Drew mentioned, it cuts uncomfortably close to home in my photography.

Great series, a good set of warning signs for all of us. However it will be good to return to being a bit more upbeat!

Thank you so much Colin! A very inspiring journey! Ironically those "not to" works you mentioned in your series are among the most popular in the art world.

Aw, man. And I was just about to suggest "Shoot portraits with available light on bed"

Glad to see you're back blogging.

Thanks for the Memories, Gazebook Sicily!

Gazebook was fantastic! If you don't know it, it's a festival that takes place in the small town of Punta Secca on the south ...
