Better Left Unshot?
I’m shown a lot of sunrise/sunset photos and when asked what I think, well, I think to myself, “it would have been better-left unshot.” Here’s an example of what I’m talking about, one of my own photos. Saw this real purdy sunset when I was not prepared, so I went inside, grabbed the Z7 / Z24-70 (killer landscape rig), and walked back out to shoot the gorgeous sunset. The problem is, it was no longer gorgeous, just purdy. Those elements which made it gorgeous had faded yet, I went click anyways. And the photo just doesn’t make it. But because I had that memory and I had that photo, heck, it’s gotta be good, right? Actually, the memory is much better and it’s a great example of a photo that was better left unshot.
