Listen to me, I say
I really couldn’t think of anything to title todays post because the photo didn’t really lend itself to anything snappy. But after describing my photo and how it came about , I replaced my usual temporary filler text of “blah, blah”. Good thing.
An interesting old tombstone stockpile I shot in Charleston a little while back. I find the designs, textures, and colors really interesting and hit myself for not spending more time exploring them and taking more photos. This is the only shot I have. I should take that as a lesson learned but I do it all of the time. Instinct tells me to grab a shot of something and I do just that, grab a shot in passing, only later to discover the subject had more potential and I was trying to tell myself something.
That is all a part of my need to slow it down a notch when shooting, especially when I find interesting subjects. Not only do I totally gloss over potential good images, I also forget to check camera settings a lot. I don’t always notice what my shutter speed or ISO is set on, or what the camera is setting when on Auto, and only later finding I could have improved on the shot if only I had paid attention.
Good discipline goes rewarded.
