lights, Camera, ACTION!

“Never reach into the garbage can before you check to see what’s in it!”

-Gary Engell, Crown Camera, Redding CA-






So you’re asking yourself “What does that have to do with photography in New York City?”

I’m not sure that it really does, except I’ve been thinking about words of wisdom lately and their source.

I was walking around the city this side of midnight and it was an awesome sight of folks just having fun taking pictures.  Every type of film, digital and professional camera available on the world market was in Times Square and there was a smiling face clicking each shutter release.

Ok, there was the guy and two models dressed as French maids who didn’t seem to be smiling that wide, but his assistant standing off to the side seemed to have a pretty hefty grin (note, always watch your assistant).

“Some days, better than others.”

-also, Engell-

I use this almost daily.

 Are you the person in charge?

“Some days, better than others.”

How is the job search going?

“Some days better than others”

How did the shoot in the city go?

“Some days, better…..well, you see where I’m going with this.”

 Maybe photography is just about having fun and not the new lights, camera or best action.
