07/24/06: "Shoot First, Ask Questions Later!"

Shoot First, Ask Questions Later!

Sometimes it's better to be quick than good. And that rule often applies to photography...parents of small children and pet owners know this to be true! How many times have you watched a photo opportunity come and go in the blink of an eye.

When this happens...don't worry about getting all of the settings perfect, just SHOOT! Even if you are a j-peg only shooter and your white balance settings is way off, as long as your exposure is close you'll find that a not-so-perfect image of a split second photo op is better than a totally missed shot (if the color looks horrible, turn it into a black & white image!). And since digital pictures are essentially zero cost, you needn't worry about shooting too much either.

So don't be afraid to grab that camera and start shooting! You'll find yourself getting better at catching those blink-of-an-eye photo ops.

Keep it real.
