Last week I took some time to slow down. I went with a friend and took some pictures of flowers...507 pictures to be exact. :)
I enjoy shooting pictures when I can take my time. I see more. I see the changing light, colors, shapes and details which can be left behind if I am moving too quickly.
I take more pictures when I slow down. I experiment with aperture and ISO while keeping my shutter speed high enough to hand hold. I play with composition, shifting from left to right. I adjust my perspective, going higher or lower. I document each change with a click of my shutter...
I end up with more pictures I don't like, than I do like. Even though I can see the image preview on the back of my camera, I never really know how my images look until I upload them to my computer. At times I may be a little disappointment for missing a shot, but there is never a failure. I learn something from each shot, what to try next time or what to never do again.
The only way I could truly fail...is to never try at all.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a great day!
