Thorsten Overgaard, one of the best known Leica evangelists, delivers photography workshops around the world. Literally.
Having attended one of them in London last December, the 3 days were filled with technical as well as intuitive information.
But after 3 months, which are the pieces of advice which have stuck ?
- Never, ever, leave home without your camera
- Never, ever, put the lense cap on your camera. Or switch it off. Every millisecond counts when the moment gets decisive
- Forget about mega pixels, fps rates and SD card writing speeds. It is all about light. And only about light
The list could be a lot longer - but those are the essential ones.
Do not hesitate to share thoughts in the Comments box below - this is actually the 4th point which stuck: share your work so that others can help you understand what you do well. And not so well.
