Make Your Last Shot Your Best Shot

An interesting and informative article from Digital Photography School, by Anne McKinnell, a photographer, writer and nomad. She lives in an RV and travels around North America photographing beautiful places and writing about travel, photography, and how changing your life is not as scary as it seems. Here she is saying that once you have taken what you think is your main shot, stop and look closer at what is around you, and what other views you can take of your subject.

Lately I’ve noticed a common occurrence when I review my images from a photo shoot. More often than not the very best frame is the last one.
I think it’s because I’ve been pushing myself further than I used to by consciously carving out my vision of the subject.

For example, when I was in Charleston, South Carolina, I scouted out a beach location that had a lovely pier and faced east. Perfect for sunrise. I got up extremely early, while it was still dark outside, went to my location flashlight in hand and got set up for the morning’s first rays.
When the sun came up it didn’t take me long at all to get the shot I had envisioned. Here it is: Make Your Last Shot Your Best Shot
