Quote: Joe McNally March 25, 2016April 19, 2016 by TJ Hansen Joe McNally From “The Power of Light” for the National Geographic, on top of the Empire State Building. “The qualities that I think get underestimated quite often are durability and tenacity and a willingness to just keep at it. Time spent behind the camera is just phenomenally important.” – Joe McNally (born July 27, 1952) Rate this:Share this:Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)MoreClick to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...

I have found that using the old quote ” back to the drawing board ” and taking a class or doing research the going back into the field or studio and shoot someone oops I meant some THING helps regain the desire to create so I keep shooting LikeLike Reply You are exactly right! I have not been shooting as long as you have, but I have had the same experience! I always tell my students to just keep shooting! The mental aspect of shooting is the most important part!
