When you are on the road for whatever reason, if somebody tells you that you need to get up early to catch the golden hour lighting, your first reaction probably will be no way. However, as difficult as it sounds, I find it very rewarding to get up early either to shoot the sunrise, or just to shoot whatever objects in the soft morning light.One example is when I was on a business trip to San Francisco. Coming from the east coast, I knew I would have suffered from 3-hour jet lag. So, instead... continue reading

Finding great shots while on the road, for me, used to mean finding great shots while hanging off the side of a road. My photography manta has often been “anything to get a great shot.” I keep a pair of rubber boots in my trunk just in case I end up in a place I might need them for a photograph; I’ve had friends hold my feet while trying to get the right angle for a photo (be careful!); and I’ve been nearly arrested for trespassing (don’t recommend this one, Dreamstimers... continue reading

And some of them you will surely find on the road to your final destination. One such landmark is popular attraction from the photo below, Drina... continue reading
I left America in spring of 2016 to see the world, and I've been in a state of travel ever since. You might say I've been "on the road", and not just figuratively; many of my days are literally spent on a road, a rail, a river, or other thoroughfare on the way to a new destination. Because of that, landscapes from along my routes tend to dominate my subject matter. Early into this adventure, the sensory overload of new sights promoted some shutter-happy habits that I soon realized... continue reading
