WAITING IS BETTER

June 08, 2024

Hi Everyone

What I have learned recently is taking the time.

Over the last six months I have taken photos in Italy, France, UK & Sweden on various trips...but I have waited until the last few days to edit. And when I say edit that's download from the camera onto my laptop, delete the obviously weak photos and then select those to share. This is usually about 5 - 10% and these are edited at speed. I crop, level, adjust the colours a little and then boom its done. I have found a few issues with my editing software not linking with my oldish camera...the result was some shooting modes eg HDR not being usable....and this was the downside of waiting to edit. However the upside is massive....I was able to be much more critical about my shots...time leads to a mental distance from the shooting experience and therefore it was easier and quicker. I have heard Tom Way, the brilliant wildlife photographer, talk about this so its not just my idea.

Below is a shot of a building taken in Stuttgart Germany. A town known for its awesome Mercedes and Porsche museums, its also a great town to wonder around.

See you soon
