There are two types of talented people: some are talented naturally while some practice/train for a long period of time
For some people, give them any camera or musical instrument or other stuff and they master it easily
For other, they have to slog many hours until they achieve the same results.
Some photographers can just carry a entry level camera and produce great shots by just going out on a walkabout. Others have to buy the best equipment and spend hours reading techanical books
I was once on a set where two photographers was shooting a TFCD bridal couple. Photographer X just took a "test" shoot,did some adjustments and was snapping away while chatting with the couple. On the other hand. Photographer Z spent a lot of time posing the couple,reading the exposure,setting the lights etc .... when i saw the results, both results looked on par techanically
however Photographer X's photos seem to have more "feel", while the other was just ok
I play the Drums and have seen very young children on you tube playing the drums. I can tell that some kids are playing very techanically, meaning that they "count" every beat in their head and execute the strokes like a robot. They are very precised and accurate. Most likely trained by their parents.
When i saw this, I kinda feel that she had inborn talent..
please note that it's not easy coordinating all four limbs
In school, some student seem to be playing around and still get straight As while others have to spend hours doing assignments and having tuition. Some students are natural at analyzing, so they can solve maths and other questions easily. Some have to bury themselves in books,memorizing methods and answers
So which do you belong to?
