Shoot Like your Grandma Used To
I’ve always thought that I spend more time thinking about shooting than actually taking that shot. When looking through old family photos, I got to thinking that “Hey, my grandmother never read a photo magazine or obsessed about the gear!” That’s when it struck me that I needed to shoot like my grandma used to. The go-to word is simplify. Simplify the way you shoot and just get the shot.
While on a weekend outing, Shawna, a BlackRapid team member and, incidentally, not a trained photographer took these images with a point-and-shoot. She had no idea what she had. We looked at these photos and thought the ultimate compliment… “I wish I had taken those shots”. It just proves the point that if you simplify your technique and just get the shot, great things can happen.
