Really the key for learning; it is not waiting and waiting for the "right" light. Some days, I'm not very patient in the field. The lesson is the same as in my last several posts. It is a matter of mindfulness in the field. Develop a "quiet" mind when shooting. Leave the issues, both positive and negative, of the "real" world behind. Learning how and where to work in Rock Creek Canyon consumed years of my career and life. My early notes/stories of images in Rock Creek mentioned that it are was "difficult" to make good photographs. Now all these years later, there are photographs to be found everywhere.
