Good Photographers Will Go to Great Lengths to Get Their Shots

What is the difference between a good photographer and a person who happens to own a camera, whether it's a cameraphone, a point-and-shoot or a DSLR? Well, a good photographer would go to great lengths to get that great shot, whether to wade through mud, stand in freezing water, or to just ignore the bees buzzing around hoping that they will not sting you. A person who just happens to own a camera will just get the shot while ignoring composition, cutting limbs of the persons in the photo, or just thinking that s/he can correct things "in post".

While I don't know if the wedding photographer here is really a good one but the fact that she really thought of her compositions speaks volumes about her "artistic" capabilities: the couple was backlit, the sun about to set, the way the couple was posed... Well, I would have added a little fill flash so as not to overexpose the background, but maybe that is her style. Maybe she really deserved to get hired!

Shots made with a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM lens. Want the best backpack for your DSLR? Check out my review of my favorite, the Lowepro Versapack 200AW, here and here.
