First off, I learned a lot about my camera in just the first ten pages. I’ve read (OK, glanced) through my camera’s instruction manual before, but the features and functions never made as much sense to me as they did after reading the first chapter. I was excited! Then I read this:
It should not take 1,000 shots (or even 10) to get the right one. Who has that kind of time? Or hard drive space? The goal here is to get our percentages up so that at least 80% of a shoot is portfolio-worthy.
Say what? I sat up a little straighter in my chair. I’ve always been of the ‘take a million shots and hope for a few good ones’ school. Happily, my percentage has been improving, thanks in large part to Nicole.
