When testing bodies/lenses/lighting…..anything really, its best to revert to a tried and tested methodology i.e Casey.
Luckily, we have it down pat, it takes maybe half an hour and we are bound to come out with a few pleasing images.
This is how it works, but I believe its time to up the ante.
I reckon a Pro might take close to 1k images at any event – how many of those are useable – more to the point, aside from useability, how many are GOOD.
Sure , I may have taken 30-50 images last night, but how many made it to this page?
This isn’t because the others are poorly focussed, some might be, on others the exposure might not be what I want (though that is fairly easily corrected) but MOST of the discarded shots are just not what I like, compositionally, as with Casey and any other human target, they move a lot, goof around.
For street shooting, and probably events, this is where skill/artistic vision comes in handy, see the shot and take it, before it changes. Expose, frame and shoot on the fly, yet create masterpieces. Hmm….I best learn me sum ‘dat.
