Chase Jarvis' Tips for Exceptional Photographs

I love the fact that this pro points out that you need to take a great number of pictures and experiment. He even talks about checking the results on the back of the camera. It has always been true that most of the time you need to take many pictures to get a great picture. However with film there was a relatively high cost for every picture, so some photographers optimized for taking fewer pictures. Fair enough. But that there are some photographers who turned that optimization for the cost of film into a virtue and disparage those of us who experiment and check the results right away with digital; so it's good to hear a pro say that he experiments and 'chimps'.

- Peace
