1. What makes a picture stand out from the average?
I always admired people that can capture a photo that tells a story. Take me somewhere. Explain to me something. Make me care or make me want to learn more about what I am looking at. And that makes even a photo taken with a potato stand out. At the same time, things can just be beautiful for the sake of being beautiful. Not everything has to be meaningful, and capturing something “lovable” and not making it “kitchy” is an art in itself.
