I take a lot of photos. There’s very rarely a day that goes by a dozen or so shots aren’t taken. Sometimes, there’s many more than that. Why I do this is to better understand the tool with which I work. I learn from shooting, and I try to apply what I have learned to better use the cell phone’s camera.
I do get “lucky” shots, where moments are caught in time, rare photos of nature or the sky, where something unusual happens.
No one, anywhere, at any time in human history, was ever good at anything worth doing because they were lucky, or they had the right equipment.
They’re good because they spend a lot of time doing it and they work at it.
Sometimes, you can spend a lot of time doing something, and work at it, and still not be that good. But if you like what you do it is still worth it.
It’s still not luck.
