There’s Nothing Photogenic about This Place
“But," you protest, "there’s really nothing photogenic about THIS place!" Au contraire, my friend, “it ain’t necessarily so", to borrow a phrase from the musical “Porgy and Bess". Let’s have a look then, at how to find the best photo opportunities in any city, town, region or location. “You’re joking, here? There’s nothing photogenic around here." you might think about the area where you live. Well, if you’ll re-tune your photographic eye and give your area a fresh new look, you’ll find there’s loads of photographic opportunities, right there in Walterboro, SC (FYI, I hate that place) or wherever you might live. By taking new insight into photographing your town, you can learn to ferret out what’s photogenic in virtually any city. Here are some tips and techniques to help you ferret out the best, most photogenic sites and provide yourself with photo opportunities galore at home, abroad or where ever you might be. With a freshly guided eye on where to look, virtually any locale can yield multiple photographic gems suitable for paying websites, magazines, newspapers and other photo-starved sources. A little research will go a long way here. Try these practical and offbeat sources for generating some new digital image ideas no matter how plain, small or lackluster you think your hometown might be. My hometown, colonial York, Pennsylvania has a population of less than 60,000. Still, I’ve found countless “photogenic gems" just waiting to be composed, framed, photographed and marketed across the World Wide Web.
