A huge part of getting that great shot you had imagined, in fact, a massive part of photography in general is problem-solving.
The better you can manage a situation the more likely you are of hitting that banger.

I suppose it’s a common experience? That moment you realize the shot you had imagined isn’t working out, it’s not possible and you just feel like just packing up.

There are multiple situations that can feel like a huge problem. Whether the light isn’t right, the angles aren’t working, if only that huge rock wasn’t there, the clouds rolled in just before you and your rider timed the shot perfectly, or you set up and none of your triggers are working to get your flash to fire.

These scenarios are not causes for ending a shoot but rather an opportunity for you to find a creative solution. I have more often then not produced a better shot once I was forced to get extra creative and solve some problems.

Happy problem solving.

Covid has dominated the news cycle this year again, while the Climate Change has been quietly sitting in the background, ticking away and getting worse every day. Vallerret Photography Gloves was built around a love of winter.
