When it comes to photography, learning to relax and accept what happens, to let go of control, is as important as technique. Serendipity is behind some of the most interesting photos.
It’s important to make plans. It’s even more important to realize when they need to be abandoned or changed.
Get into the scene, be present. And work with the situation as it is, not as you would have wanted it to be.
Photos do not have to be truthful to what was really out there when you took them. They have to be truthful to what you wanted to convey, to your interpretation of that scene and that moment.
