What makes a photograph special? It might be the exposure and lighting. The angle you've captured. The uncluttered background or the action you've stopped. It could be a small detail or the big picture.
It's really about one thing.
A photograph is special when it means something to you. When it tells a story that connects the moment to your heart. When it stirs emotion. When it matters. To you.
So embrace the blurry, the compositionally challenged. The overexposed. The underexposed.
Embrace the connection to your heart.
That is what matters most.
