Elaborating on something heard on a recent photo podcast:
People often say, it’s become so easy now. You have your digital camera with LCD screen. You take a photo and can immediately check the result on screen. But are you seeing the result? I think its an important question to ask.
Because you can not know if that photo you made will eventually make it into a series or a certain thematic set… You are seeing something that captured your attention and you had to make a photo of it so here it is, on the screen. The result will come later, maybe in post production, maybe in selection etc. Who knows, it might be a header image for your new photo book… Then you have the result.
I may check my LCD screen for a couple of reasons; 1 – if I shot from the hip, I want to check if I got the subject in the frame or 2 – if the shot was properly exposed.
What about you guys? Anyone feels the same or you prefer to turn off your LCD completely so it doesn’t disturb you? Curious to hear your opinions 🙂
