April 2017 - Show and Tell
So now I sat down once more to talk about my drive in Photography. I always liked the fact that you capture a moment in time and as long as I like the image it is a result. Sure you can improve and there is no reason not to learn and try out new things... that is actually great as I never get board with new techniques, people to work with or also play with new gear.... It's at times frustrating, but most of the time creates pleasure.
Over the years I spoke to other like minded and asked questions and also answered questions it is the exchange of knowledge what drives us all forward and lets us experience new things or just lets us see old things in a new light.
Recently I did walk with David, who has taken plenty pictures before, but now did the plunge and got a newer more advance Camera. He struggled as his results did not portray, what he expected in comparison to what he achieved with his old Camera.
Why is that? It's a better Camera and he knows how to take a Photo. I have seen some of them from before.
The answer lies in the new" Camera. It gives more opportunities to capture something one sees, but and this is a big BUT, only when you understand what the Camera is doing and how things are hanging together.
It is like a Team, where the one who takes the photo has to try, learn and listen. And there comes in the communication bit. If David would not have walked with me and listened, he may had given up on the new, more advanced Camera and went back to the old he knew how to handle. In the short run he would have been happier with his results, but would it have given the new opportunities?
More importantly he listened and then tried out a few things we spoke about, which is a phenomenal result. So well done for taking the plunge and start communicating with the me and the camera.
Enjoy the road which seems never to end...
