That Perfect Shot

So what you do to keep from going crazy after shooting a convention for a week and trying to keep motivated? Well, you shoot for the perfect composition. I always have that dream shot where each subject is at peak expression, the spacing is all even, the light is like a Rembrandt, the story is of utmost importance and it's sharp. One of my most memorable assignments in college was to go out and concentrate on all Four corners of the frame and make those 4 corners have meaning. It was a good way to stop from putting everything in the center and let your eye expand out to the edges.
This shot is far from this ideal dream but it's a try. Hopefully someday it'll all come together just right when I'm out on some international story.
