Have you ever wanted to do something so badly that you would do it repeatedly for years just to get it perfect? How far would you go? 3 years? 5 years?
Photographer Alan McFadden waited 6 years to get the perfect shot of a kingfisher taking a dive into the water. He also took 720,000 pictures before he got that perfect shot. Why did it take so long, you ask? Read on:
1. He just wanted a perfect picture without any splashes
“The photo I was going for of the perfect dive, flawlessly straight, with no splash required not only me to be in the right place and get a very lucky shot but also for the bird itself to get it perfect. I would often go and take 600 pictures in a session and not a single one of them be any good. But now I look back on the thousands and thousands of photos I have taken to get this one image, it makes me realise just how much work I have done to get it,” he said.
