Set Piece, Or Action?
Something a little different for the blog today. Yesterday the light was a bit interesting in the afternoon so I went out to shoot with a specific thought in mind. I'd decided I might be shooting too fast, too many frames, a bit giddy over the 'free film' of digital capture. So I resolved to spend an afternoon shooting only one frame of each subject. To see whether this made the results overall better or worse. Then I made the first of these shots and could hear a car turning into the side street, so I decided that rules really are meant to be broken. I waited forever, as it seemed, for the car to enter the viewfinder and move to a good spot for a second shot.
So, influenced by some posts Martin has made at The Public Eye Blog, I'll ask if there are any reactions about which shot works better?
