I have been looking over some shots here and reading the comments about them when it came to me that there so many things that one needs to think about when making a shot that the fun can be sucked right out of photography. I know when I comment on a shot I try and be objective but find myself talking about how it could have been better. Also I have posted some shots that I was really proud of and have had others do the same. Now I am not saying that I only post great shots that could not be any better. How many things do you need to think about to get a really great shot and thought it might be fun to see what others think about when taking a photo. Some things I think about: DOF Rule of 1/3 Leading lines Lighting Shutter Speed Framing If I should use a tripod or Not What lens I should use That is all I can think of now but I know you all will help me out Now that I have a little list going I must tell you that most of the time I find myself just thinking about 2 to 3 of them when I am taking a shot and totally forgetting the others. I was thinking of taking a list with me just to get me thinking of some of the others.
