Landscape photographers-travelers-tourists- we love to photograph! Sometimes we have planned for months to visit New England (yes-that’s me!) and we get in our heads what we are hoping to see-
Flexibility is key! Seeing BIG and SMALL – I actually have learned to LOVE WEATHER- uncertainty- the chance of Frost-Rain and even SNOW…
These red leaves were along a ditch near a planned photo stop one morning and once we had our BIG picture- the barn-the field-the sky- we were all in the ditch… busy trying to capture these stunning red leaves with the frost before it slipped away…
When you are photographing always try to check out the whole scene-what is the BIG picture may not always end up being the BEST picture so before you jump in the car and scurry off- LOOK around- check that you have not missed a small details-
Zoom -travel lenses are often handy for this- take in the whole scene and then ZOOM in and look for detail- a rusted door handle – a shadow- vines that have turned color twisting over old wood..
Being in a group with other Photographers often is a huge benefit- others point out a detail you may have missed-maybe you can try a new technique and you have the benefit of TIME- not feeling rushed-
Join me on my next PHOTO TRIP!
