No CC from me this time... but ask yourself these questions:
- What is the purpose of this pic, what are you trying to say or show?
- What or who is the main subject? Is it easy to spot or impossible just by looking at it?
- Are ALL parts of the picture that are critical to what I am trying to say, in focus and sharp?
- Is there too much negative space?
- Is there a large percentage blown out or underexposed areas, and is it important?
Order of things I do when taking a picture with a purpose:
- Find an interesting topic
- Find an interesting angle and/or view
- See and compose the pic in my mind
- Frame my picture with the camera, match it to my mental view
- Meter for the PROPER part of the picture
- Set camera settings to achieve my artistic and technical needs
- press the shutter
When I first started in photography, I snapped away with impunity. When I learned to understand what I wanted from photography, I thought about each picture before pressing the shutter... sometimes for minutes! Today the only part of the process that slows me down is the metering... I really have to sit back and think about it before pressing the shutter, but at least its not minutes anymore... lol
