Luck or Technique?

Ok well I’ve been thinking about this quite alot lately, about the images people manage to caputure.

For example you could be walking along the park and all of a sudden these two dogs start fighting so you whip out your camera and start shooting and get awesome images- so that’s luck, right? Because you were there in the right place at the right time.

I’ve often thought that being somewhere at the right time is the luck of the draw and a huge advantage to capturing a great image that noone else could have.

On the other hand, you turn up and start looking around until you find something interesting and then shoot it from all angles possible, that’s technique….so you can’t really have one without the other…ok so I’ve just clarified this myself…nevermind!

However, I also think that if you put yourself in an interesting environment you’re bound to get great pictures anyway and weird er cool stuff/images always happen in interesting environments.

Advice to myself: immerse myself in interesting environments!!
