Every now and again, I like to get out of the office or the studio and frolic in the beautiful Sacramento sunshine. Usually I bring a camera along (and a model or client) for some beautiful photography. I don’t always trek to a beach or a park; I don’t always wait for the perfect golden sunset; nor do I always look for the perfect panoramic view. You don’t need a perfect location to get a great shot. Remember, the audience only sees what the camera sees, so it doesn’t matter if there is garbage two inches to the left of where the camera is pointing—no one will ever know. (In other words, not all locations have to be glamorous for a great photograph.)
I’ve had fun doing outdoor photography in a wide range of places, such as the upper fork of the American River, a curb in front of a school, a fence in an alley and sitting on the railing of a balcony. Below are some examples of my outdoor photos.
If you like, share. If you don’t like, don’t share. And if you’re indifferent, then share or don’t share, whatever.
