Students of photography should research many sources for ideas to improve their photography. Viewing other photographer’s websites is a great way to understand the insights of how other nationally known photographers add to their portfolios. Recently I had a “Aha Moment” viewing the work of two photographers. They go back to the same venue to create different images of the same location.
Michael Fry, https://www.michaelfrye.com, resides on the western slope of the Sierra Mountains and continually returns to Yosemite National Park. In his Yosemite Portfolio he includes photographs for different seasons, light conditions of the same view. This myriad of views gives the presence of being in Yosemite year round. In addition Michael is gracious with sharing his insights and talents with the photographer community.
Living on the Kansas Plains doesn’t mean that there is nothing to photograph. We have fabulous sunset and sunrises. The is nothing to get in the way of the pallet of colors available at this time of day. The wheat harvest in the spring offers plenty of action capturing combines harvesting wheat and vintage grain trucks traveling to the grain elevators. The above insights give me the motivation to make the most of my personal surroundings.
