Never Pass Up The Shot

Written by stuestler on March 5th, 2009

OK, never is a pretty long time, and we’ve all got schedules to keep. But when you see a potential shot, and there’s any way to make it happen, take it now. Obviously street scenes and candids that include people will never be recreated exactly the same. But even subjects that aren’t going anywhere –  like landscapes, architectural shots – will never look quite the same again.


The combination of light, weather and all the other variables will never make it look quite the same. I too am subject to the rule of “gotta be somewhere” and have passed by scenes that were just perfect photo-ops, planning to come back at another time. No matter how many times I’ve returned, at the same time of day, with the same weather conditions, something has always been different and the shot was never quite the same.


Sure, there often is a shot there, but the shot – the one that caught your eye and imagination – is gone forever.
