I’ve been putting together a presentation on steps (with examples) anyone can use to start moving from vacation snapshots to travel photography.
If you are in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area (Greater MSP) this weekend, stop on by.
Saturday, April 23rd 10-Noon
Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul
I’m focusing on basic things that anyone with any kind of camera can do to make sure they are in the right spot at the right time to take a good photo. These are simple things, but they are the first step to getting a good picture.
The list includes:
Take your shot, then WAIT and shoot a little more
- Wait for people, animals, or vehicles to move in or out of your picture
- Wait for the action
- Wait for the light to change
- Wait for the weather to change
Move around a little
- Change your perspective
- Follow the action
- Find a less-traveled path
Get up a little earlier
- Take advantage of dawn, sunrise, and morning light
- Look for unique morning activities
- Beat the crowd
Stay out a little later
- Photograph during the golden hour, sunset, blue hour, and after dark
Do a little editing
- Share the best, hide the rest
- Clean and enhance
