You never know when something is going to happen so have a camera with you at all times.
Success at really getting good at photography is the idea of creating within your own mindset the viewpoint of always “being on.” By that I mean always being aware of the world around you and opportunities within it for getting that great shot.
Of course sharpening your observation and “seeing” your environment as a photo is all rather pointless if you don’t have a camera with you!
When you think you have the shot… shoot some more! Note: Keep Brain engaged at all times.
There is a lot to be said for learning photography in the digital age and one of the great advantages is that it costs nothing to take a bunch of extra shots. In the days of film you would have been restricted in your output based upon your budget.
Film and processing costs quite literally forced photographers to get good fast, go broke or give up.
These days its a different story. Shooting a multitude of extra shots may very well get you the shot exactly how you want it but doing it mindlessly will teach you nothing.
So by all means take advantage of the freedom offered by digital photography but at the same time note what you are doing and note the different outcomes you are achieving as you do them to improve your skills.
