Skill … or luck?

I have a passion for photography. I have been told I have some skill in the area, and I have to admit I occasionally take a good pic. Sometimes even on purpose!

The funny thing is that most of my favorite photos are a matter of luck. Some may have even been just an accident. The best I can say for my involvement is that I pointed the camera in the right direction and held it fairly steady.

Now that Spring has given the illusion of actually arriving (it IS April right?), I decided to go outside with my camera and see what I happened across. I managed to snap a few decent pics (if you want a look click here), but the prize of the lot was … you guessed it … pure luck!

Sure I was hoping to catch a bird in flight, but I was expecting a barely caught blurry image. I just did not have the right set up to catch … well what I actually managed to catch!

Guess this is a testament to action. Would never have caught that photo if I convinced myself not to even try.

If you are interested in looking at some examples of my photography, check out My Photo Site (still in development).

    That is an amazing shot. Okay, I agree that was luck, but you also have skill. You have an eye, and a talent with cropping to focus on the perfect thing.

      Someday I will try a shot like that right. With a better camera and tripods and the like. Might actually come up with something really good!
