Part-time professional (paid work)
~ When I shoot weddings, events and gigs, my eyes are constantly drawn to photographic opportunities that are ABOUT to happen (Glints in the eyes, real reactions, etc); This, I am sure, stems from my interest in psychology and body language.
I have, on countless occasions, been in mid conversation with someone, only to spot a potentially superb photograph unravelling as we speak. I zoom off apologetically to capture the moment as it reveals itself to me.
Then come back to explain my actions to aforementioned person.
~ I am coming to the conclusion that I shoot a lot more photos than most photographers. This does not deter me from meticulously sifting through the hundreds of images to select the best and edit each one individually.
Who says you can’t have quality AND quantity? ;0)
