Booker is so naturally photogenic. It’s like he sees the lens as an extension of my eye. Noob on the other hand tries to see behind the lens to the ‘real’ me. Consequently, it’s MUCH more difficult to photograph Noob – as if he wasn’t difficult enough being a black cat that steals all the available light.
Sometimes I walk away from a sunrise shot at a beach with about 60-150 shots. Sometimes 20-30 of the same composition. There are many reasons for this: 1) I want varied wave types, heights, etc to choose from, or 2) The light is changing rapidly – the color range of the light can be totally different in shot 1 and shot 15, to name some.
