The Canadian photographer Sherman Hines who did a few books back in the 80s of scenic parts of Canada once discussed his philosophy. He said he could never work like Ansel Adams, parked for hours/days waiting for the perfect shot.
He said he could take ten rolls of film of different subject matter while Adams was still sitting waiting for a shot that may or may not appear.
Some may say, well I've never heard or Sherman Hines so why would I care what he thought. Well, his work was pretty great, but the difference was he shot color.
Surrealism like black and white will usually win out over color.
The moral to the story though is, do what you feel.
Also Hines shot with a Pentax 6x7 and Adams with a 4x5/8x10 (5x7???).
