Creative photo ideas for July: 08 Shoot a photography hotspot
Heading to a well-known photography hotspot provides some great opportunities. Just don’t expect to be there alone.
“I love to have a location all to myself; I find it easier to immerse myself in photography without the worry of getting in somebody’s picture, or vice versa,” says landscape pro Adam Burton.
“However, visiting Porth Nanven in Cornwall to capture this image proved to be a heart sinking moment for me.
“Upon arriving I saw several photographers were already in position. My first thought was to jump back in the car, but as it was nearing sunset I knew that would leave me with little chance to find another location. I decided to persevere, and took my position near the other photographers.
“Looking back, I made the right decision. While I’d have preferred an empty beach, my overriding memory of this evening was that of capturing a series of images of a beautiful sunset.”
