The world is full of beautiful detail. Everywhere you go there is opportunity to enjoy expansive views that are stunning and inspiring. We tend to gravitate toward scenes that feature wide open spaces but, the landscape is full of small scenes with their own unique beauty. Always be willing to change your perspective.
In photography you must always adapt. Minimize what is working against you and maximize what is working for you. It is a simple concept to say but, at times, hard to teach. During our recent one day workshop on Cape Ann we started early at Good Harbor Beach in hopes of some nice landscapes accentuated by warm morning light and a dramatic sky. Instead it was cloudless with a brutal wind. The light was nice but, the conditions were very tough. Instead of giving up and moving on the lesson was to change your point of view and create a different kind of landscape image. Our scenes got smaller but the opportunity for creativity was still big.
It is important to have vision but, it is equally important to know when to change. There are too many wonderful moments in photography, and life, to limit yourself. Change does not mean failure it simply means you have a different opportunity to create.
