I'm very much one for scouting a location and returning many times for just the right light. Of course, often I develop the negs and it's NOT what I expected.

Also, sometimes I go somewhere to shoot and nothing looks worth a sheet of film. But a take a shot anyway saying "I lugged this 8x10 (or 4x5) all the way out here. I HAVE to shoot something!" Wouldn't you know it, sometimes these are my best shots. Funny ...
