Photographing On Site

2014-06-29 13.04.31 copyI chose this particular subject of photographing on site because this is what I teach and it is one of the most difficult and challenging ways to shoot. Natural light photography seems easy to the untrained, but to get the shot you want involves controlling light, one of the most important and challenging aspects of photography. Good photographers know how to control their equipment to get what they want. Hopefully it is a mood or a feeling, not just an image.

One of my favourite online teachers is a man named Mike Brown. He exemplifies the kind of educator I am trying to be. There are a lot of other online resources and tutorials but Mike Brown gives clear, concise tutorials that focuses on one subject at a time. I really like that he makes these complicated tutorials seem easy and fun. He is one of the great resources I direct my students to. This is one of my favourite Mike Browne tutorials on Location, Light and Composition.
