A little distance ….

Last Saturday morning myself and a friend were very lucky to gain access to a beautiful old building to take photographs. Part of the agreement was that we wouldn’t name the location as the owners want to retain privacy. It was a very enjoyable few hours and we were made very welcome, in fact we have been told that we can make a return visit if we wish (and we will definitely do that).

As we spent a lotof time talking we didn’t take as many photographs as I expected to and there were only a few that I was slightly pleased with at the time.

I recall talking to another photographer a few years ago and his advice in the case of not being pleased with a set of shots or following a shoot was to put the images away and revisit them later, be it a day/week/6 months. He felt the important thing was to put some distance (in time) between you and the shots.

There was one shot, which I slightly pleased with, but certainly not overjoyed with. However just 2 days later I am much happier with the shot, it’s still not a stunning image but I do like it a lot more and it has brought home to me the idea of putting images aside before rushing into making a decision about them.
