Wait. And wait some more.

I have heard it said many times that good things come to those who wait.

This is true in photography as much as in any other aspect of life. I was on an assignment the other day and I said to the guy I was following (after being with him for 6 hours) that sometimes the best picture you take is the first one, but you won't know that until the end of the day.

Because sometimes it is the last one which is the best.

But you won't know that until the end of the day.

Wait.

Shooting strangers.

Photographing strangers is - we all agree - not always easy. Here's a little video which might help. Or not.

Filters



I always always always put filters on my lenses. Simple UV protection filters are a wise investment. Buy good ones, not the cheapest ones - you just spent a lot of money on a lens, why would you then want to put a piece of cheap glass over the front of it? Anyway. Why do this at all? Simple. Filters protect your lens. When you drop it face down on a rock, it's a lot cheaper to replace a filter than it is a whole lens.

Here's a perfect example.


Read about this little accident over on photographer Ian Pack's blog. It's sound advice: http://ianpack.blogspot.com/2010/06/lens-protection-filters-and-why-you.html
