“Slow down, take less pictures but better pictures.”

Revisiting old haunts, or more correctly old images. From time to time we all take pictures which, for one reason or another ever get around to processing and so they never see the light of day. This is one such, a 30 second exposure at Southwold in Suffolk which, because I was away for a few days and came back with a lot of images, did not get dealt with at the time except for a monochrome version.

It is in fact probably the best file from that day and shows the value of being patient since I had to shelter on the pier from a storm for two and a half hours and took this as it cleared. Memo to self: “Slow down, take less pictures but better pictures.”

  1. I still take far too many pictures and then, as you say, don’t get around to processing them all. This year is the year of slowing down – maybe 🙂

  2. Great picture and advice. I teach photography and this is the same advice I give to my students. I think that many photographers think more is better. Ansel Adams thought 12 significant images in a year was a good year.
