Stay and be patient

Article Excerpt: “It seems that good photography is almost entirely about patience of one kind or another…I can’t stress enough how important it is to be patient, to stay with a situation and work it over. Things are always changing—your subject, the environment, your own thoughts about the image you’re making…Because we can now press the shutter button and then immediately see the image, there’s a tendency to have a quick look (keep in mind that a small LCD screen is not the best way to judge a photograph, especially outdoors on a sunny day), think that you “have” it, and move on to another photographic subject…But if something strikes you as being worth photographing then it’s certainly worth spending some time on. As your subject or the scene changes, your knowledge of it and approach will change too—the more time you spend with anything the better you know it.”~Cary Wolinsky and Bob Caputo from their article Patience!
