But one place i felt a bit confused is, once you get a standard-post card shot, and then a not so sure different perspective, where do we stop?
The general progression for many people is along the lines of "first we learn to emulate, then we lean to create" ... getting to the place of having your own voice/message/point and/or style. You stop wherever you want to stop ... or never stop. Personally, I follow a similar progression as I move through different genre's. Our craft is so infinite, that the only thing that stops us, is our internal self-satisfaction/complacency.
+1 @ art & science blend = message/point/mood & command/control.
How do you do it Rusty? How do you nail your shots?
I screw 'em up first, try to grow & learn differently and only show the good ones.
It's kinda like playing chess or shooting billiards (or most anything really). When you first start playing chess or shooting billiards, you concentrate on your current move or shot. As you get better, you think about not only the current move/shot, but the next two or three as well. The really good ones can "see" a multitude of levels beyond the obvious. It is mostly a progressive awareness issue that you build with time and experience ... and yes, "learning from mistakes" is part of it.
BTW ... I "miss things" all the time and want to "kick myself" for not seeing it. I think part of it is how immersed & attuned you are at the time of shooting. One thing that helps me, is to use a tripod, as it intentionally slows me down. Now that I've "slowed down", I become more studious of what I'm doing. Shooting hand held, I tend to get a little too anxious to just shoot ... if that makes any sense..
The key part for me, here is the ability to analyze what you were trying to achieve, knowing how you went about it, and then realigning things as needed or making a "mental note" for next time. Kinda like a marksman that is hitting the target, but not the bulls-eye will adjust things to move him closer to his target (whatever your target may be).
Anyway, I appreciate the kind words, but I'd likewise be pleased to produce the works that you've presented here. I think you've got a vibe in your approach that is inherent to you ... you seem to be a "quick study".
