What is the biggest challenge about photographing new places? How do you overcome that challenge?
I wouldn’t necessarily say that photographing new places is challenging. It’s often when I’m visiting a place for the first time that a wave of inspiration comes over me. I have fresh eyes and see and appreciate the things I tend to overlook when I’m in a familiar place. That said, traveling to and photographing new places certainly can present challenges. One of the biggest challenges in travel photography is finding a unique perspective or point of view to capture a scene that doesn’t feel cliché or overdone. Sometimes that means hunting down a great rooftop to shoot from, being in the right place at the right time, and seeking out those hidden gems. Going the extra mile always pays off.
