As I am sitting in rainy Seattle, I am daydreaming about some of my special sites for photography. Admittedly, a cloudy sky with an old red barn and abundant wheat crop is one of my favorite views. I can think of no better place for that experience than the Palouse region of eastern Washington.
When you find a scene that you particularly relish, I would encourage you to shoot it from all angles. In addition I always make a composition in both a landscape and a portrait format. I think each of these can tell a different story or give a more complete story about the scene if both are included. I know this is a simple tip but one that I think will enhance your ability to portray the scene that provided meaning for you.
Enjoy your time as you visit the Palouse and take in all the beautiful scenery of this photo rich area.
