Excelling in landscape photography takes some thought and preparation. It’s not a drive-by shooting out the car window and it’s not a mid-day shot when you’re having a picnic with your family. In my new series of articles, I will tell you what my process was, and how I got the shot. Sometimes, it’s pure luck.
But it’s always about being at the right place at the right time in the right light. So, then it’s not just luck, is it?
Whenever I go anywhere, I make an effort to either be out at sunrise or sunset to find the best opportunities landscape photography. On this trip to Southwest Florida, I was there visiting family, so it was not purely a photographic trip. My time was split between attending to my aging parents and spending time with other family members. But, as a dedicated photographer, I always find time to find a place and time to shoot.
