Be still with yourself until the object of your attention affirms your presence.
I tend to avoid taking pictures when the sun is high in the sky, but yesterday when I went out in the yard around 1, there was some good light hitting the tulips. I took quite a few pictures before I really became present and observed what was going on. The tulips were dancing in the breeze and basking in the warm sun. After I became aware of what was going on I changed my approach and got some amazing images with my Nikon (see one below.)
I was using camera+ and the white balance was totally thrown off on all but one image because of the intense color. I’m surprised by how much detail there is in this one. All I did was add a little ambiance, a tiny amount of drama, and a little structure in Snapseed.
Here is the winning shot of the day from my Nikon.
