Have you ever gone out to a photoshoot with a preconceived notion of what you wanted to get for your shots? I have. On the day that I took this particular shot, I had planned on a sunset shot. I had the image pictured in my head. I knew exactly what I wanted. BUT circumstances did not cooperate (as often is the case)!
I got there hours and hours before sunset. Sure, I waited. And the beach was crowded with people waiting for the sunset—messing up my planned photograph. There was NO way that my planned landscape picture was going to happen with all the people buzzing around!! I could’ve given up. Thrown in the towel. But no.
Given that I was at my location early, I decided to play! I got out my lensball and played until sunset. I don’t usually take images in the middle of the day, but I used the conditions that I was given. My advice…
You have to be flexible and open about what you’re going to shoot when you go out—otherwise, you may never get any images. Rarely do all the circumstances align so that you get the perfect conditions for a photograph. Relax and have fun. Be prepared to try things that you may not have expected to try. Who knows you may find something you love!
What Is This Page?
Since I love photography and teaching, I thought I would start a Blog page and share how I take my images, what I was thinking and about me.
