I've been to Death Valley a lot and I've shot here a lot. …So you might be thinking, then why did choose Death Valley as a location for …this course if you've been here so much? That's a good question and it's a …question I will often find myself asking myself when I'm wandering around Death …Valley not getting any pictures that I like. …I'll think, well why did I come here, why didn't I go somewhere new since I'm not …seeing anything here, I feel like I've shot it all before. …The challenge of returning to a place is to try to get out of your comfort zone. …The way that I shot it before was probably the way that it, it was most …obvious to me. By coming back to it now, I'm challenging …myself to find a new way of shooting, trying to find a less obvious way of …shooting, trying to find a different take on the same material.…
The advantage of coming to a place that I've been to before is I know it well already. …I know the places that I want to go. I know the places that I can skip. …I might have already shot someplace and feel like that's all I need to do in that location. …
