One of the biggest differences between professional and amateur,
aside from education and training, or knowing how to ‘make’ an image,
is in knowing what to show … what’s worth keeping?
Basketball, volleyball, or baseball ‘action’ pictures with no basketball,
volleyball, or baseball in sight can send me over the edge – ha.
This is what photographers (should) do – capture … cull … and edit for BEST.
‘Keeper’ is the goal, the one that will stir you up inside!
You need shots that shine for ‘ever after’ and print …
the memory and moment to see somewhere in the house for years to come,
made into a portrait for his desk (for sure) or placed in a matted album
or keepsake box … other keepers added over time.
That would be a really great collection!
Up above is one good Pop … and his girl only had eyes for him!
In years to come she won’t remember this, but she WILL look
at the picture and know the FEELING was mutual.
