I like his approach. I have yet to see any pro set everything up, take one shot, and call it a day. It'd be nice if it did work that way, but it always involves working the scene, trying different lighting, different ideas. Even Rick "One Take" Sammon takes a few shots. That's photography. There's a difference between perfect exposure and perfect shot. Exposure can be had in one shot, but finding that right shot can be challenging. Scott's video may not reveal that much to pros, but more beginners should see it. There's a misconception that pros walk around snapping masterpieces and everything somehow magically falls into place for them. We work hard and use skill to achieve a vision.

A camera or lens can't take good or bad photos any more than a brush and canvas can paint themselves a masterpiece.

I guess my thinking was that pros can take great shots without taking as many clicks.

I thinks pro's master their gear well and need not reinvent the wheel midshoot. Just as important is understanding how your subject behaves.

If I remember correctly Craig posted a link a little while ago for me about studium and punctum.

He even got me interested in art
