Keeping your Eyes Open

I’ve listened to people say, and so-called experts write about, needing to be in some great location to make that “perfect” photo. “It’s all about location”, they opine. To me, it’s more about keeping your eyes open so when you see something that strikes your interest, record it with your camera right then. I’ve been to many extremely scenic locations in my time, four times in Alaska and the Bering Sea as one example, and I do admit to those occasions being full of great scenes that make wonderful photos. But, it was not that hard to make those images when they are there in front of you, so long as you know what your camera can do, and you do it right. Most times, however, I’m not at great scenic locations. So, I have to make the best of it. As long as I’m happy with the results, that’s all that matters.

  1. I’ve change my thinking to getting a great image. I look for great light then find a subject that happens to fall in it. Increase your odds by going out during the magic hours and the edge of storms.
    I call your style of photography, “Drive by shooting” I do enjoy your work.
