An art lover

“Compose and wait.”

I’ve taken two classes with Sam Abell, and he stressed that concept both times. (He practices it, too – look at his work and you can tell!)

I am not a patient person so composing and waiting doesn’t naturally occur. But look what happens when I actually c-&-w! An art lover – though she appears to be a little skeptical about this particular piece – steps right into my composition, just where I needed her to be.

Thanks, art lover!

  1. she has the expression i think i would have. Trying to image the shot, without the woman, It is a great composition, using that negative space of the wall.

    c&w is something I could (should) remind myself. when I think aboout it, I tend to have a comando approach: get in, shoot, get out.
