Often photographers will see something that catches their attention and then focus their efforts on that subject. They take a picture or two of it and then they move on to see what else they can find to photograph. Many of us are guilty of doing this, I know that I am and have often wished I could go back to photograph the subject further.
Instead of just moving on, we should fully explore our subjects; use our feet to back away or move forward, walk around your subject, observe the light that falls on it, watch where the shadows fall. Try different compositions using both vertical and horizontal orientation or try low or high angles of view. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to do that, but when we are not pressed for time we should push ourselves further and fully explore our subject to make sure that we have gotten its full potential. – Leslie
