The Importance of Knowledge

I always hear the statement ”being in the right place at the right time is key” and let me tell you, I believe that to a certain extent. But being in the right place at the right time won’t do you any good if you’re not prepared with the knowledge and skill-set to capture what is in front of you. I’ve spent many years honing my craft and feel very comfortable when presented with an amazing scene! I pre-visualize my image and know exactly what camera settings I need to use to create that pre-visualization. I know what lens and tools I need to create my image.

So my parting words of wisdom are “knowledge is key”. Spend the time to truly lean the craft so when you are presented with an amazing gift you’ll know exactly how to capture it…

  1. I agree! I’ve met so many who think all it takes is having a good camera. As you say, the equation includes knowledge of the craft of photography (exposure, composition, etc.) and I’d include knowing how to use that high-end equipment along with being at the right place at the right time. Excellent capture … Black Falls?
