I enjoyed Michael's recent article about styles of shooting. Both photos are great and the article adds to the enjoyment of the photos.
It has been quite a while since I went shooting with anything other than a camera, but I can recall a number of scouting trips before the start of hunting season--trying to search out likely locations for duck hunting. When the season began, there were often cold hours before dawn, sitting motionless, waiting for first light and the chance for a good shot.
Likewise, I'm not much of a fisherman, but the little I've done often involved being willing to move around when the pre-selected fishing spot wasn't productive.
In other words, I found that hunting involves some "fishing" and fishing involves some "hunting." My photo style is the same way--a mixture of both "hunting" and "fishing." Sometimes I scout out a location and wait for the light. When that happens, sometimes I am rewarded, and sometimes I have to move on. On the other hand, sometimes I am hunting around for some quick shooting and instead of a quick shot I find a spot I just have to come back to for a carefully planned "fishing" shot.
The one constant I'm looking for, regardless of shooting style, is to find the light and to find the mental "zone" that lets me see the light rather than objects. If I can find that, then I feel the hunting (or the fishing) has been successful.
