3 Tips to 'make' a photograph not 'take' a photograph


I think these are great tips that help slow down your photography and make great photographs.
When you see something you want to photograph:
1. Stop and think. Is this the best position? Moving just a short distance can sometimes make a much better picture.
2. Is this the best light? Following on from 1, is the light showing off your subject? Can you wait for a cloud to pass or move to capture shadows differently?
3. Is this the best time of day? People, traffic, even sun's position might be improved by coming back at another time.
Think of these three things, when you next bring your camera to your eye, and you'll 'make' great photographs.
