Video: Shooting strategies for a seaside town

Okay, so we've been here about three days now and done a lot, seen a lot. I've been up the coast photographed up at Fort Bragg, we've been to the Redwoods, we've been to the lighthouse. A little bit of exploring here in town, this is Mendocino. It's kind of the heart and the central area around here of only about 1,100 people. It's a small town. I guess it was founded back in the 19th century as a lumber town. But it's a, it's a really cute town.

Shooting strategies for a seaside town

Okay, so we've been here about three days now and done a lot, seen a lot. I've been up the coast photographed up at Fort Bragg, we've been to the Redwoods, we've been to the lighthouse. A little bit of exploring here in town, this is Mendocino. It's kind of the heart and the central area around here of only about 1,100 people. It's a small town. I guess it was founded back in the 19th century as a lumber town. But it's a, it's a really cute town.

It's like this, I can see why people live here and I can see why people come here. There're a couple things I can see right away, this town has that's unique. And, and the, the first thing you notice are these water towers that are everywhere. And I want to photograph them and, and there, this is definitely something that will make this town, the pictures of this town unique. And the other thing are these wonderful kind of wild, cultivated slash cultivated gardens that people have that I haven't really seen anything quite like it. It's a mixture of wild plants and cultivated plants.

And then there's the old Victorians that are sprinkled all throughout town. So I think I've kind of been here long enough to see that those are the main aspects of the town, besides of course the people, who are wonderful characters. But I'm going to stroll around, and just kind of, my eyes will probably stray to those three areas, the gardens, the water tower, and the houses. And I'm just going to take, take pictures. I have to, of course, pay attention to where the sun is, so I'm limited by, by where the sun is in position to the buildings.

But mostly, it's just going to be me strolling around taking pictures and following my eyes. So, let's go.
