Project 13 | Week 11

Is there a difference between shooting and seeing? To me, shooting is the mechanical task checking of your camera setting, setting the exposure and pressing the shutter.  Seeing is about realizing that a great photo is right in front of you, unfolding or waiting to happen. Magnum greats shoot differently. Garry Winogrand,  burn through numerous rolls of films in a short period of time. Henri Cartier-Bresson wait for the decisive moment. The technique of shooting is a matter of personal style, but the art of seeing is universal.
