Iâ€™m often asked â€œwow how did you get that shot!?!â€. I have a simple answer: luck and taking lots of shots. Really. One of the best pieces of advice I was given when I got a DSLR was to shoot at least three pictures per shot. Why? Because people blink, glance away, etc. By shooting more and shooting rapidly you significantly increase the chances youâ€™ll get â€œthe shotâ€. I know that shooting lots of shots is harder with a point and shoot but trying is good.
