With outdoor photography you will find there will be many lifestyle changes for you. The day is beautiful so you would rather be out taking breathtaking photos than working. Work we must do until this becomes our full time job. You will must always be prepared for the expected and unexpected of the day. .
The day has begun and you wanted that beautiful sunset before work begins even though you know you will have to get up super early to start your day and maybe at the end you will be tired. Its all worth it. Day in and day out. The goal you have set forth for yourself for the day is an accomplished one, You will be amazed and proud of yourself. Always practice.
Knowing where to go
Which way the sun rises is where you want to be. Take more than one by all means because I would love to see some myself. Dreamless possibilities if you know where to go and who else knows the place you live better than you? You will know the best places where you can catch that sunrise or sunset, whether it be on top of the hill or a mountain overlooking that stream with the green grass meadow below full of wildflowers.
You of course want to always be prepared for any type of weather because if the day starts out sunny and nice, it doesn’t mean it’s going to end that way. Always try to keep something for every weather event in your car. You will wouldn’t want to get wet or be so cold you can’t do anything because you forgot your jacket. Its nice to be warm and cozy, even in the below degree temperatures. You will want to have your functionality and desire with you. You will wouldn’t want to give up the perfect day to freeze, especially if there is a lot of activity outside going on outside. It would just be a waste of your time. Time that could be spent looking and going through all of your other pictures,
Knowing when to stop for the day
Getting started is the easy part. But remember if you want to look at those pictures when you get home and go through them please do. Just allow yourself enough time to do so. I can stay out all day and enjoy it. When I get that sunset, unless I see an owl or 2, I’m calling it a day. There will be days that I’m so tired from hiking, I’ll wait until the next day to go over my pictures. Starting an online gallery is great. Having a portfolio at home is great but requires a lot of patience and work. But all in all it is worth every amount of time spent doing what I love. The same should be said for you.
Always keep fresh ideas
Keep your ideas fresh. You will do not want to have the same things all around you. When something new comes to mind, keep a small notebook around and write them to keep them fresh you w with what you want to see. Most times you will forget what it was in the first place. This way you have it on hand and can go back to it at any time to refresh your memory, Want to try something new but don’t have time now, write it down. Keep your ideas fresh and positive and there’s not a doubt in my mind you will succeed and benefit from what you have accomplished.
