Shoot Differently


I have come across something rather interesting in an article from my complimentary copy of Digital Camera Magazine from Olympus E-System Gathering not too long ago... it says:



"Try not to strive for the perfect shot, instead, strive to shoot something you have not seen before."





Amber from KLPF (difficult shots, with so many VULTURES blocking me left right front back)

There have been so many times I tried acquiring the technically accurate photos, but they distinctively lack the ooomphh factor. They all turned out rather bland, and uninteresting, because probably millions of other photographers have done similar things before, and whats new?

I should keep that quote in mind.

  10. shoot without looking into the viewfinder. Just rely on instinct. I do that sometimes, an very useful to sneak some shots where you friend will go "delete delete!! you better delete it!!"
