It’s hard to top a great day of shooting. Even a mostly fruitless excursion can be considered a success add long as you know there’s one good shot on that memory card..When shooting digital, the urge to immediately review and begin editing can be terribly irresistible. Knowing you have just one great shot on that card can trigger an almost child-like state of impatience.
And if you’re like me, you more than likely snuck a peek at your shots on the LCD. Yes, I’m most definitely guilty of this and I guarantee it does nothing to settle the urge to edit.
But rushing to edit what you just know is a killer shot, or shots, isn’t necessarily the smart move. After a year of taking street photography seriously, I can humbly offer some advice that has worked for me… wait.
