Sometimes when you’re shooting – you might find that someone comes up and asks what you are doing…… it’s always tempting to give the sarcastic answer – after all I’m stood there with a tripod and a camera on top – what do they think I might be doing?
Anyway – whilst I was in Bath last year, someone stopped and said to me “it’s nicer down there”…. I think that I might have ignored the advice, but something inside me said I should at least go and look. I suspect I’m not as clever as I used to think I was, but I decided to go …..
I went – it was better, I stayed quite a while, enjoying the scene, and thinking what I could do with it later…
Later….. when I was showing the photograph to a friend who was with me at the time – he said “I didn’t see that”.
Let yourself be helped. Your pictures will still be your pictures – there is no way they can be changed just because someone suggested another point of view, or venue. The person stood right next to you will probably have a different picture anyway….
