5 Lessons from Michael Kenna (Part 2 of 5)

If you've ever been to a well-known place or a 'tourist spot' and felt slightly bored, or worse, embarrassed by taking photos of a subject matter that's been used many times, Michael Kenna may change your mind.

Lesson #2:
"No place is cliched. The challenge is finding a new perspective."

Michael showed us his takes of the Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Opera House, which were breathtaking, naturally. He's unfazed about how many times a photo has been taken of the same place. In fact, he revealed that once he's pulled by a spot, he would return over and over again, and each time, the environment would feel different. He invests in a subject matter he finds worthy, comparing it to spending quality time with a good friend.
