It’s easy to get fixated on a particular composition. But it’s often good to look at what’s happening around you.
As a landscape photographer I’m always trying to find great photography spots. There is one place I’ve known about for a long time, but it’s a seasonal lake, which means that you can only photograph it after long periods of heavy rain. Recently, after several weeks of rain, I not only got the chance but was also able to find an outstanding viewpoint thanks to a new photography location website called Photohound.
I started noticing a problem with my camera lens, but that problem, I was to discover, would actually be a huge help when it came to trying my hand at a technique known as Intentional Camera Movement (ICM).
