Essentials 8: Its Often You and Not the Gear


Who hasn’t experienced it, that getting angry at a thing like a computer, car or hairdryer only to end up damaging an innocent item and getting even more frustrated.

That happens on
photographic safaris, wildlife photography courses, team building photographic safaris, wedding photo shoots, family occasion shoots and all other photographic opportunities all the time. Mostly all with the same essence, it was not the gear, it was the photographer.

When such a situations occurs, make a step back, and if it is only imaginary, look at the situation from the distance and start seeing the solution. It will be healthier for the camera gear and yourself and the images will be just stunning.

Happy snapping!
