we get lots of calls + emails from photographers wanting to take their photography to "the next level"
often we're asked: "what camera or lens should i buy next?
truth be told in MOST scenarios (other than say dimly-lit churches) it's more about HOW you shoot then the equipment you make the picture with . . .
want to be a sports photographer some day?
then shoot the local little league the way you'd shoot the all-stars
that's the zack arias (i.e. one-light-zack) example: "go out and shoot like it counts" zack insists.
thinking about weddings?
then practice. everyday. on everyday events.
focus on capturing the emotion behind-the-scenes as well as "main stage"
what does the anticipation look like?
look for the action-reaction sequence that unfolds in your midst + try to determine how to best document, how to best communicate those feelings, that essence-of-life bit in a single frame.
oh i somehow made all of this sound more like a chore than a joy...it IS joy; total joy but does take effort, and movement and planning and loads and loads of drafting. but whoa the practice is such fun!
kim and i are posting LOTS within the next few weeks. go grab some sun but stop back by ;)
