THIS WEEK'S TIP
Are We Shooting Too Quickly?
By Peter K. Burian
Because there's no need to pay for film and processing, we all take far more pictures. That's great when we really “work” a subject, exploring it from various viewpoints and perspectives. But it can also produce a shotgun approach where we simply blast away whenever something vaguely interesting appears. Shooting too quickly - without taking the time to make a serious creative effort - leads to snapshots without attention to composition and other details.
NOTE: Be sure to check out Peter Burian's bio and list of online courses...
