My friend Ken writes an excellent blog in which he describes how I feel most days. Here are a few key questions you should ask yourself before you ever squeeze the shutter.
What exactly am I trying to convey to my viewer?
What emotion do I want them to experience?
How can I captivate the viewers interest?
What is important in this scene?
What isn’t important?
These questions and more importantly how you answer them will determine the success of your photograph.
