Trip Tips: On the road to great photos!

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
