If you type the word "askew" into a Google search, your computer screen goes a little wonky. It's amusing.

When you turn your camera askew, you get a slightly different perspective on your view of the world. It can be more than amusing... It can turn into an exercise on tuning in to how you see that world of yours...

I always try to encourage my students to keep shooting after they think they've got the shot. You see, when you get the shot you've pictured in your head, you have accomplished your goal. You can relax. Now you get to play!... And magic happens during playtime...

So shoot outside your vision... Shoot askance and askew... You might just discover you see a little deeper.
