What will obviously make the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful photographer is the intellectual ‘baggage’ he brings with him. He should have a heightened sense of curiosity and be able to foresee and predict certain sequence very quickly. I think the old-fashioned statement ‘f/8 and be there!’ is true even today. The ability of the photographer to ‘get in’ to shoot is 99 percent of the battle and requires that he be ‘trusted’.
