Learning to see is about Patience

‘Luck is where preparation and opportunity meet’ – Seneca

Seeing so many great images of others and hearing about how long they’ve been inn the field can give the misconception that everything happened overnight.

The truth is that there’s an incredible learning curve. It takes times to learn, to observe light, the quality of available light and how it interacts with all the elements. It takes time to learn the various aspects photography and then harness all those lessons to create our own visuals. Once all of these aspects of seeing and creating are in place then we can attempt to make our vision come to life.

Photography isn’t about creating just one image nor it is about rushing so it is completely okay to take our time. It is also alright to take time examining a scene and exploring all possibilities.

All the images that we consider the best or the greatest did not happen overnight. Each took experience, years of practice and honing all the skills that we have acquired along the way.

Some are considered to be luck but I choose not to believe that. If the skills were not present, then that particular moment would been missed.

Here are a few images that took some time, skills and patience to create….
