BIRDS - HORIZONTALS PART TWO
"The end is just a reason for stopping,
for nothing is totally finished"
When I was an educator, my students often asked: “Am I now finished?” A rational question considering the person teaching was a perfectionist. Even with their frustration showing, I would always point out additional corrections. With time, they noticed the drastic improvement to their work. After a whle, the question would changed to: “What else can I do?” On the whole, this shows the reality of the human experience. Many people tend to quit because they don’t know how to improve what they're doing.
In bird photography one also finds many folks, including pros, who reach a specific plateau of contentment, and they stop. Probably they already got wonderful photos of certain species and don’t see a need to take more. Irrespective of this valid reasoning, I’ve always preferred a contrasting philosophy: The best images are waiting to happen. Time and experience have shown how well this ideology has unfolded, regardless of the subject.
