The eternal rule in photography


Book Excerpt:
The simple truth of it is that even the most experienced shooters still miss the moment, still make mistakes—sometimes mistakes so basic that they wonder if there’s ever any way to really and reliably learn this art and craft.

In this way, digital photography is no different from old-time photography. Good pictures are good pictures; you make some, you miss some…Digital has changed the game, to be sure, but as in sports, the same rule applies eternally: The one who performs best—the one with the most points—wins. Whether we’re talking football or tennis or photography, you play the game the right way, you win…
~Joe McNally from his book The LIFE Guide to Photography

Wishing everyone a blessed and spiritually-filled week ahead.

  1. Ha, truer words were never spoken. And I’m often the one with the least amount of points!

      I beg to disagree Elisa! you got lots of images that are, in basketball, equivalent to three-point shots! So great shooting there. 🙂 Thanks!
