It doesn't matter how many classes you take, how many blogs you read, how much expensive gear you have - if you aren't constantly shooting, you aren't improving.
Not much of an epiphany, but something we all need to hear. Myself included.
I shot this frame in the middle of another shoot at Chautauqua Park. She was tottering around at the edge of my field of view, so I dialed in a new exposure and rapid-fired with my 200mm racked all the way out - like the total creeper I am. Ten seconds later she was back playing with her friends and I was back to the shoot at hand.
Sorry about the Blog Lite this week. I've been relaxing, reading, and volunteering my time away without making any time to shoot.
