The Landing

This is a standard boat landing with nothing on it. How on earth could this be worth photographing? Well, most ordinary things and scenes around us are potential images and can in fact be quite dramatic if you plan your shot carefully. The main trick is to keep the camera in the bag and use your eyes to constantly analyse and evaluate possible images as you walk. Every 100 metres or so I usually do something odd, I make a full circle of where I am standing, slowly, to see if there is anything of interest from this point looking backwards as well. When you do take out your camera, stay calm and think of options before you just blast away 6 exposures. To me it is a personal sport to use as few exposures as possible, but still creating good photography. [24/3.8 Elmar]
