thought process. what caused me to dig this exact passage from a book i have? how does one view things differently? you shoot the same things over and over because that’s what you see, how do you adapt? change? modify? how do you see what you don’t see? anytime i approach something, i just go with what i know, instinct. gut. reaction. feeling. one can criticize post image/post film forever. but during that moment, there is only so much you can control. why didn’t i do that? why didn’t i frame this? why didn’t i more her left arm slightly below her knee? what is that wrinkle on the shirt? and that is the motivation. to go back out and do it again and again until one day you barely start to feel you are doing it right. and that takes a lifetime. and that is the beautiful part of it all. the only satisfation is the passion and determination to do better than the last. hmmm, i’ve lost sight of this thought. regardless. that passage always motivates me. somehow, it’s romantic.
found this old quote and my comment from my 2006 blog. it still seems relevant.
