pinball_pw's daughter and her horse in the Critique forum got me thinking about how to capture the emotional impetus of a photograph, especially with spur of the moment and candids. I am typically inspired by some emotional response to seeing something, yet rarely do I capture an image that conveys the feeling. It may be as simple as "that's a pretty flower, I'd like to take its picture" to something more mysterious. Perhaps my challenge is to better understand these emotions; however in spur of the moment, travel, and candid photography, I find little time to ponder, walk around to find the optimal viewpoint, etc.
That said, some people inherently have a knack for this, some just get lucky, and others have painstakingly developed their skills over time. Perhaps you would like to share your insight, tips, and tricks to help a novice like me develop his skills. I've read numerous articles on the topic but I'd like to hear from the FM community. What worked for you? How did you do it (maybe with examples)? What went through your mind leading up to and including the time you took the photo?
Thanks in advance for sharing.
