Learn by Doing Photography #25 – Photographing Roads

Roads are always fun to photograph.. You might choose a jam packed street with lots of people mid afternoon. Or a Sunday morning walk might find the same street completely vacant. You might choose a winding country road as I did or even a sidewalk. Whatever you decide to photograph is up to you. Try to think and see the road in a different light. There might be a road you drive every day, you like the way the street winds around the intersection, but instead of taking the picture during a busy afternoon come back when it’s not to busy.

For my picture I headed to the mountains with my daughter Kat for a hike. We were driving home when we looked to the south and saw some very low clouds hanging over Pattee Canyon. Of course what does one do when they see low clouds – you chase them in a hope to touch the clouds. We made it to the top of the mountain, but the clouds were always just a bit in front of us. We didn’t touch the clouds today but instead ended up on a beautiful hike. What we found were Lupine, yarrow a whole lot of rain as well as the distant sound of an owl hooting at us.

This week I had a very hard time finding a video, if you have a good tutorial on shooting roads please let me know. This one may not have many tips, but he ends it with some lovely advice about searching for different angles in photography. Not just angles, but new ideas to photograph out of your comfort zone to stimulate your imagination and make you a better photographer.
