Easy Does It: Slow Down to Avoid Mistakes
I’m not always the most patient person, and sometimes that’s my downfall as a photographer.
But believe it or not, simply slowing things down and taking a few extra seconds to check your composition or check the camera settings or give your model a little instruction about how to pose can mean the difference between getting a photo that’s a keeper and getting one that needs to be deleted.
Beginner photographers sometimes take the “spray and pray” approach, thinking that having a huge quantity of images will improve their chances of getting one or two good photos.
But the reality is that if you take your time, you’ll find that you have more high-quality images (like the one above) in fewer shots than if you treat your camera like a machine gun!
Slow down, take a breath, and concentrate on each frame you take.
