You shoot a lot, you hope a little and you’re grateful to get just one or two.
I’m back from Easter Island and have begun working on the several thousand images I shot. Many were very long exposures and that gave me lots of time to think, and one thought that I had was:You shoot a lot, you hope a little and you’re grateful to get just one or two.
And that’s the truth: I shot a lot of images and while I’m hoping for several good ones, I’ll be grateful to get just a few. It’s funny how when you’re viewing images in the field every one looks like a killer, but the reality is that the public will only see about 1 out of every 250 images that I shoot.
And while it’s important to create great images, it’s almost equally as important to only show the good ones!
I’ll be presenting my work to the Alpenglow Camera Club in Granby, Colorado on Wednesday, February 4th.
My presentation is entitled “Why Black and White?” and we will be meeting at the Granby Public Library at 7 pm.
If you’re in the area, I’d love to meet you!
