I think this might be an issue, and I think I need to change that theory of shooting. I am not sure I am lazy, or I think it might be just easier to concentrate less on current shot specifics, dynamics and production details. But I do think it is making my final product suffer.
As an example this shot below, it is not bad, I hate the arm and left hand position. I wonder if I was even thinking about that arm position when I was taking the shot, or was I think about how this shot would look in post with filters applied? Or was I not even caring about the shoot enough to see the issues. Pose, backdrop, floor ac vent, dark pillow on a light couch etc..
It is clear to me to advance my photography it will require me to really start to pay attention to the details and not get or continue to be sloppy.. and that is no going to be easy.
Attention to detail is what makes people true pro's
Many have asked me what sets apart a pro from an hobbyist… I think attention to detail is what does more than making money at it or doing it daily.
So I guess the moral of this shot is – think more – think in minor details – think more about making every shot perfect out of the camera…
