...Technique is a matter of individual preferences. It bores me. I am only interested in results. However I do offer a few guiding rules of photography.
1/ My essential equipment includes an alarm clock towake up early and a compass to find where the sun is going to be. I also have a small double pointed quartz crystal which sits in my camera bag with the exposed film and helps to increase sharpness!
2/ The best light occurs when I am stuck in the office with the VAT man or have left my camera at home.
3/ If I wait for perfect conditions someone will park a truck in the view.
4/ The most I have waited in the rain for conditions to improve was five days. The picture wasn't worth waiting for and isn't in this book.
5/ Having walked for miles for a good picture I often find the best photo when I return is right next to my car. The only problem beeing that I've parked right in the middle of the view.
6/ Nothing is repeatable especially the light.
7/ Those pictures which require the most perspiration and imagination to take are always the ones that look the easiest.
8/ Don't run out of film.
