Do you care more about quality or just capturing the moment?

    I'm very glad I don't share your journey home from work.
    What happens when his mom is no longer available whenever he gets into trouble?

    It's, rarely, dull in the No-Fun City, Chester ;) and, I'm guessing, that this young lad
    would have the same results, regardless if his mum is/was available :eek:

    Got to agree here - Push The Bloody Button.
    Quality is great if one has the time to set things up.

    Some times it isn't possible to get a decent shot of something that is going to be there tomorrow, so it is usually best to take a shot, assess it at home and use it in the same way a watercolour artist would use a sketch.

    Other times, something is there that needs a quick reaction. Simply getting a record of a rarely seen bird, street news as in Don's images, or something else require us to hit the shutter trigger. After getting a shot or two, we can then decide if we have the ability to get higher-quality shots. This is often determined by the camera - does it have single-button access to ISO/metering/release mode etc. Pro cameras tend to have this, whilst my D5300 needs umpteen menu accesses to achieve the results. ...either that or it needs bouncing off a damn wall.

    Seen and been involved in many cases like above, as you can imagine. Now I’m out of it and that bit older it no longer likes like fun, just really, really sad.
    Good captures Jack.

    Let's face it, it's easy:
    be in the right place
    have your camera with you
    be ready, have the setting appropriate to the conditions
    be able to look, see, observe and anticipate
    frame the shot, take it
    move, take another
    use you feet as well as your eyes

    As I said... easy

    Thanks very much, Nige, and you're never, really, out of it ;)
