When taking a picture, zoom it out.
Instinct is to capture the tight shot our mind’s eye “sees” but the experts are right when they say, a wide-frame offers enormous real estate in a creative sense. There’s also the chance of stumbling onto something totally missed in the original focus. Something that could just prove writing gold later.
Seems so obvious I could kick myself. So for now, I give you NY, NY, tight zoom.
PAPARAZZO: Look! <tight zoom> A G-string!
ME: Look! <zoom out> A whole resort.
