The Story

From Episode 32 of Perfect Inspiration

Who says that just because you’re in a location with one clear image, you only have to take one shot of it to capture its essence? Now, I’ll fully admit that there are some location with just one really ideal way to shoot it. The Cedar Creek Grist Mill is such a location. Now please don’t take this out of context. I know that there are a thousand different ways that one could should the grist mill but, by in large, it is usually shot the same way by the majority of photographers – and there is NOTHING wrong with that. Until you’ve shot it for yourself, the shot hasn’t been taken by you.

But there is something to be said about getting the best one shot wonder that you can. With the shot in today’s episode, it took about 12 different attempts before I finally found the right angle and vantage point. Sure, it was the only image from the grist mill that I’d probably ever end up using (unless I return back down the road), but I feel confident that it does a great job of representing what the Cedar Creek Grist Mill means to me.
