More often than not I feel like my best shots come from just planning to be in the right place at the right time. In fact I find that most of my rules for photography these days involve only a few steps to get the right shot:
- Pack only the gear you can carry on your back
- Go somewhere beautiful
- Explore and shoot until you fall over
Following these rules when out shooting usually results in hundreds or thousands of pictures in a day, but usually there will be that one shot which you can hang on a wall.
Sunset over the East River
This shot was taken on a rooftop in Williamsburg just after sunset. I found myself on this rooftop sort of by accident, but once I was up there I made the most of it since the view was pretty decent. This is an HDR Panorama consisting of 3 bracket sets of 3 images each. The processing of these HDR Panoramas always takes a bit longer than I like but the end result is always a lot of fun. This Panorama is 10000 x 6000 pixels so it will make a nice large print one day.
