You need to plan any major activity and photography is no exception, e.g. you wouldn't go on vacation without knowing a little about where you are going and what weather might be expected.
If you photograph children, wildlife or landscapes then you have to wait for the right moment, e.g. for a smile, a bird to land on a branch or the sun to break through clouds.
When something goes wrong, you need to try again and in photography something goes wrong all the time!
In the next couple of blogs I will try to expand a bit more, so keep watching...... :)
