We all went for an afternoon walk today: Masood, myself and Nikon. I read in a book earlier today that really good photographers take thousands of pictures per week. I just started on my DSLR sometime in July last year, and I’ve barely taken two thousand pictures in 7 months! Oh, and these really good photographers also said that if they didn’t take a single photograph in an entire week, they feel rusty.
So unless I go out there and shoot, I’m not going to improve. Because I noticed that I spend more time reading than actually shooting. But where will I get the time to go out and take thousands of pictures per week?!
On a positive note, I already have something planned for the next weekend! It’s going to be a lot of fun with loads of opportunity to shoot, inshaAllah. No, I can’t disclose the location yet (we’re known to change our minds/plans in the last minute).
Take note of the dust that has settled on the lens cap in the picture above. That is the amount of dust that has accumulated in the short span of time: between taking the lens cap off the camera, taking one quick picture of it on the bench, and then placing it on the grass to take another shot.
