We all have some sense of timing. Does that mean we always get it right in photography? I think not. Timing is a skill we can learn though. In doing so we can improve our photography. As long as we know where it fits into the scheme of things. What are the recipes for perfect photo shots? It’s not easy to tell, but we all know that timing plays a very important role in taking photos. Choosing the right time will help photographers capture once-in-a-lifetime moment.
Life does not always happen on a scheduled basis. We don’t know when something extraordinary happens. But there are still many people lucky enough to witness them. However, most others cannot.
So, to take photo of a precious moment, photographers have to stay patient and ready. When the place and the characters are right, what is left is the right moment to take pictures. Patience is what makes it going until the very end. Even in certain cases, it calls for some luck. And when the efforts pay off, there is nothing that can compare to the enjoyment of the result.
What we can see from such photos is just some astonishment for the extraordinary timing skills. Not everyone can really understand or imagine the hardships under which those pictures were created. So, looking at those golden timing pics, just feel thankful to the creators who suffered everything for the purpose of bringing it to life, so you can witness with ease.
Another way to get a marvelous chance on timing is to create it. But this requires the creator to be creative and original enough to construct a unique scene for shooting. Things are difficult in the beginning because success or failure depends on the preparation and arrangement. Once, everything is set, the last step is simple. For some great photographers, they can even create a scene that looks most natural to audience because its purpose cannot be easily recognized.
