canon-sd990is-redIn my last post I talked about 5 things to pay attention to when photographing.  I’ll take it one step further and say you can be scouting out potential photography subjects and be paying attention to these five things all the time.  You never know when you might come across something you would like to photograph but may not have the time at the moment of discovery.  A pocket size point and shoot camera and notebook kept nearby at all times come in handy for just these situations.  You can take a quick snapshot (or 5 or 6) of the subject and jot down some notes as to the location and what it is you think you want to focus on when you return with your SLR or DSLR.  Then when you return to your computer, down load the images and connect them up with your notes.  You can do this either by printing the images and and transferring your notes to the back or even by pasting them into a Word document and typing in the notes.  That way you have a file of future photography subjects to explore at a later date and you won’t end up scratching your head trying to remember where you saw that great photo opportunity.
