Landscape Photography Quick Tips: Revisit Locations

Don’t be afraid to revisit location you’ve photographed.

We as photographers never stop learning. To get your ultimate landscape shot, keep going back and use the knowledge you’ve learned from your previous visits of that location to explore the area again; 9 times out of 10 you’ll see something new.

It’s virtually impossible to capture all of the amazing sights of a location if you only visit it once, then move on to the next one on your photography bucket list.

We’re always looking for new scenes that inspire us, but a new scene in landscape photography is more than simply ticking boxes off a checklist of locations. The light, the seasons and weather change a scene through out the day, months and years. Returning to the same location gives you the photographer the opportunity to create work during times other people may never see.

My favorite local location is Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes Delaware. Check out the different photographs from the bay side of Henlopen over the years. Check out how the light, subjects and the land has changed during each visit.

Nature Photography Tips with Jay Goodrich

Published by: Framed Show on Oct 10, 2011

It’s amazing to find a man that makes his dreams a reality. Having looked up to the legendary nature and landscape photographer, Art Wolfe, for so many years, this photographer now teaches at his workshops.

Living in the heart of some of Washington’s most beautiful country, Jay Goodrich has the eye to still architecture and Mother Nature in the most breathtaking way. Having an architecture background and a love of adventure sports, his photography goes beyond capturing the moment; he shares a feeling, a fleeting, beautiful moment in space and time that would otherwise be lost. Going beyond the most important tenants of photography, composition, clarity, and light, Jay’s photos also exude emotion and passion. Jay is an internationally published and celebrated photographer and writer. His clients have included fortune five hundred companies, trade publications, national and international magazines and books, graphic designers, architects, builders, commercial printers, and many others.

One of Jay’s greatest gifts is his ability to share his great passion for photography with others. He has the ability to effectively communicate the components of one’s art that makes a truly great instructor. Jay most enjoys working one-on-one with individuals in his intimate workshops, because it is possible to see the growth of their photography skills on a daily basis.

Jay teaches about four small-group workshops a year to some of this world’s most amazing locations. He is also an instructor for Art Wolfe Workshops.

Today, Jay shows us that you don’t always need to jump on a plane and go to the ends of the world to find amazing wildlife or nature photography. Sometimes the best photos can be taken in our own backyards.
