Can our Ability to Respond to a Scene Improve Over Time?

Connie Cassinetto (Via the Lens)

Keywords: nikon, d200, d800, d500, birds, wildlife, landscape, via_the_lens

I was bouncing around, or at least my finger was bouncing around on the keyboard, on an online photography forum the other evening and someone asked this question, “Can mental quickness in responding to a changing photographic scenario be learned or improved?”  As would be no surprise to most of us, the answers were all over the place and there were completely opposing opinions regarding the question.  I don’t recall if I responded to the question but it did make me think about photography and the process of learning the craft.  


Bridge Over Sacramento River.
Nikon D200, 1/250 sec. at f/8, ISO 200.
A 28-200 kit lens that came with the D200. I started out learning about the elements of basic composition. Line is a key element in photography and in this shot I was practicing this element by trying to make the bridge look even longer than it was.
