52:320TXP - Week 05 - The Lone Tree

For anyone who is a fan of the Film Photography Podcast is probably aware of a fantastic photographer by the name of Jim Austin, or Jimages. Well week 5 is probably because of Jim, and his philosophy of slow photography. See, I took this photo before I lugged out the camera. I came across this scene the day prior, stopped the car got out an admired it, but didn’t take the photo then. I waited, a good 24 hours before actually dragged the camera out. It took me that long to build the final picture in my head. And while that is taking a risk of not seeing the scene as I wanted to within the week, it wouldn’t have mattered, because I wanted to get the shot just right, and that is what it’s really all about…patience. Sure I could’ve taken the camera out and shot with whatever I had with me…but then I don’t think it would’ve been as good an image.
