A few weeks ago we touched on perspective and the incredibly important role it plays in you capturing interesting photos. This week, another case in point.
I've mentioned before that my wife and I like to spend time in the Door County Peninsula in the summer months. There is never a shortage of photography opportunities and this past week we finally were able to make the trip.
- One gallon Zip Lock freezer bag for camera (an actual dry bag would be better, but it worked in a pinch). Check.
- Tripod and wireless remote. Check.
- Low tide, partly cloudy sky (no spectacular sunsets without clouds) and relatively calm water. Check (thank you Mother Nature).
- Photography Buddy with 911 on speed dial. Check.
- Water wings. Check. ;-)
The moral of the story? Not only do you sometimes need to get dirty to get great shots, but sometimes you may need to get wet too. Don't be afraid. Plan accordingly, be safe and have fun. The rest will follow.
Until next time, keep click'n.
