"Making mistakes is part of being a photographer," says McNally. "The day you stop making mistakes is the day you might as well hang your cameras up because it means you're just not trying anymore. I make mistakes continuously. They are not perhaps as fatal as they once might have been or as egregious but you're always thinking -- I still say to myself when I'm on assignment, what would a really good photographer do right now?"
