When my camera wants to take some great photos, it wakes me up one or more hours before dawn and makes me drive all the way to a location that it had previously made me drive around several times, just so it could study the area and find the best point of view from which to photograph it. The camera then proceeds to make me wait around in the freezing cold for the right light and conditions to appear as the dawn breaks and sun rises.
Should these conditions not appear on this particular morning, the camera allows me to return home for breakfast. The whole process is repeated on other days until the perfect conditions appear and it manages to get just the right photo that it had in mind. And when that magic moment happens, the camera then tells me how to set the aperture, shutter speed and ISO so I will achieve the perfect exposure, and then tells me the exact time to press that shutter button.
And if that isn’t enough, it also cunningly plans to force me to return to the same location at different times of the year and in different weather, so it can get a variety of pictures.
