    What makes you stop and take the photos you make?

    Is it based on place and time? Do you plan on going out to for a given image or do they just appear? Is it the light, location traveled to, subject?

    Understand that the portrait folks will follow somewhat different reasons, but for you why trip the shutter when you do? Do you plan out the shoot, or do you wait (and hope) for the image you feel is there?

    That's how I do most of my photos:

    - It's planned, in the sense that I do not walk around with a camera - unless I'm willing to take photos, and I like mostly 'hard' light, so I go out erly morning (occasinally) or late afternoon or at night.
    - It's random, in the sense that I do not use a studio, so there's no 'posing' - subjects are just scattered here and there; something catches my eye, click.

    Alot of times I just go out wondering with my camera. I'm always composing photos in my mind. When I see one I like, I take it. Sometimes I do go out to a specific subject. Like the other day I went out to this old camp with these weird TeePee (spelling?) cabins.

    It depends very much on mood and state of mind in my case.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    If "why" can be neatly wrapped-up in words there's that much less reason for the picture.

    Amen to that! I take it because I feel I must. Period. Be it a street shot or a planned one.

    Hmmmm.

    Well, with 'people images', portrait or otherwise, I usually shoot because I sense something is about to happen -- an expression, a spark, something significant. For me, it's about anticipating a moment, rather than reacting to it. With the very young subjects I usually work with, reacting to a moment means you missed it 99% of the time.

    somedays I plan - if i am on holiday, i ALWAYS plan, then get over-the-top frustrated when the light isnt right, or I've misjudged the tides/ sunlight direction, probably ruining the whole trip for my fiancee. I seem to spend my year planning returns to locations so I can get-it-right-next-time.

    Other times I wander around my local area and shoot if it looks right.

    Simple.
    As soon as the kid gets the angel wings on, I know that it is time to start snapping away. :roll:
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
