[font color=\'#000000\']Two points/questions
I've always been frustrated by taking photos of fall color. I cannot get on film anything like what I imagine in my head when I am there in front of the real thing. It's to the point that I've all but given up on it.
Commenting on each photo, Michael says that he took many frames trying to achieve a good composition. I wonder about this. As a novice, I'm always amazed when I hear how many shots professionals take. The National Geo guys are especially crazy taking 100's of rolls to get 30 some shots. Isn't the idea to really study the image in front of you? Before you click the shutter, shouldn't you have framed the subject so you've got exactly what you want? I've read many times to examine the whole viewfinder, especially the corners. Isn't a shotgun, 1000's of frames approach contrary to the idea of making each image count?[/font]
