I like to think that I can predict the future.
While that’s probably not possible, even for a guy like me, I’m often able to anticipate the future, or at least predict what might happen in the next few seconds or minutes while I’m out on location.
To me, this is a key element when it comes to creating compelling imagery, especially when shooting adventure, sports and action. I use this skill all the time in my own photography, and, in fact, I think it’s one of the most important ingredients towards getting great shots.
In my mind, refining your skills of thinking geometrically, constantly observing and reacting to the unfolding scene in front of you is one of the best way to improve as a photographer.
