A few words on photography in general

No one becomes a good photographer overnight, even if you have a great eye for subject matter. It’s far more likely that you fall in love with photography before you master it. Even then there is an ongoing learning process that can only be helped by looking at the work of others, of tutorials and practice. It does not matter if you focus on a genre like street photography or portraiture or nature, finding the path to what works for you and trying new things makes us better photographers. Sometimes when I speak to photographers they pass along tips and are very confident in their abilities. It’s not a race or competition but the good ones usually read the manual and spent time making mistakes. One thing I have learned is that the more you focus on one area of photography, in my case nature, the more you learn to anticipate and be prepared. Squirrels and chipmunks are not always photogenic but you can anticipate their actions, the light, the background; the things that make the photograph work. You won’t always be able to capture the decisive moment but it will happen more often if you have experience and can anticipate what might happen.
