Outside Wandering

Do you think about your photos before leaving the house or just wing it?

Wherever I am in the world, I love to explore and often just go out on walks with my camera with the eager eyes to take an epic photograph, one that will write me into the history books.

Constantly shooting is always a good thing when you’re claiming to be a photographer but if you just go out and fire off without thinking, I don’t find it produces much value. Equally, if you go out with the intention of getting just one particular single shot, you might not get it and find yourself never taking a photo.

So at what point do you draw the line between capturing a particular shot and keeping your eyes open to spontaneity?

Personally, I find it best to have a general theme, for example: people, nature or shapes.

If you do however see something incredible happening, don’t say no just because it doesn’t tie in with your theme!

It just just helps to guide you along which you’ll find is more enjoyable, because you’ll know what you’re doing… sort of.

Where there is no vision, the people perish – Proverbs 29:18
