I mentioned in my last post about having a mentor. Scott Bourne who is my mentor, just wrote an excellent article that I feel is a must read. Thinking creatively as you photograph is so essential. His article “Get Creative – Tell Stories With Your Camera” has some very important food for thought.

The picture at the top of this post reminds of the story that was told in the movie “Cars” by Disney. I would like to know the story this old car in the image would tell.

I hope you enjoy this information as much as I did as I read it. Hopefully it will prove to be of value to you as you progress in achieving your goals in photography.

  1. Beautiful images and I agree with trying to tell a story with your photos. I’m going through many images (1000+) from a recent trip and taking a close look at which ones do, and don’t, tell a story.

    On a separate note, what is the best time of the year to visit the Palouse? Any recommendations on certain places to visit?

    Best time to visit during the green season is from mid May until mid June. Everything has been a little later this year so right now is aa good time.

    Harvest will be late July through first couple of weeks in August. Totally different look.

    As to location base around Colfax or Pullman and you will see many beautiful vistas. Steptoe Butte is only about 8 miles from Colfax.
