During the question and answer at Ian Plant’s seminar last month, one of the attendees asked him something similar to this:
“So, you’ve gone to all these remote and fantastic places and taken all these fantastic photographs, what about someone who really can’t travel all around the world to find images. What do we do?”
Basically, the answer was to practice taking photos at home. If you can take good photos here, you can take good photos when you do eventually get to these places.
I wanted to do a presentation on just that, finding good photos here in Illinois. But I also promised Sam Black I would cover England and Scotland at some point. So, I decided to do both. On three separate trips over the last 20 years to England, Scotland and Wales, I took pictures of where I was at the time, rarely venturing out to the ultra-spectacular locations. It was combination vacation and photo excursion when I could get the time. So time was short on my own, or I had to find the shots where I was.
I’ll be covering different themes and subjects I am always looking for when I am out and about. This is the United Kingdom Edition.
