How Shooting Just One Thing Can Improve Your Photography Chops

You know how Monet became an unstoppable Impressionist juggernaut? He painted the same stuff over and over again.

It works for photographers too — Cecile Figuette takes a Polaroid of everything she eats. Every. Single. Day.

Focus on one subject, and you’re forced to evolve your style to keep it interesting… change your perspective, change the way you see things, change everything!

Do it for a while and everything you shoot starts looking better, not just your spicy sopressata with Italian Fontina and pesto on country bread. (Fancy pants!)
