One of the struggles of a beginner photographer is seeing the world in a different way.

We’ve all become so blind to the beauty around us that you have to retrain your brain to see things in a new way.

Beginner photographers are always asking me how I find such amazing locations. My answer, open your eyes, they’re all around you. You really don’t have to go anywhere.

This was one of my biggest fears when I first started. I thought I had to have the best locations to have full control over the environment I would be shooting in.

But after a while, I decided to challenge myself and let my clients choose a location. This would force me to find good spots on the spot the day of the session.

That’s when I discovered that almost any location can be a good location, you just have to learn how to see it.

Here are some photos showing what the locations look like and then showing how I see them.

That's exactly the same way I looked when Predator first came out.

Every amateur photographer can make these photos with a 3000$ lens and 2hours of photoshop. Trust me.

Beautiful subjects. These photos, and the ones with the boys, show that wearing similar clothing adds real harmony to a photo, not unlike the family photo sessions with everyone wearing jeans and white shirts. In every photo the light seems enhanced, and I don't have a clue on how to do that, to add the richness of the browner tones.

I like the balance of the green in his shirt with the background.

I love how the girls get deeper in the water as the photos progress (you can tell because the denim smocks are dry above the waterline). At that age, idve been aching to just start swimming in that beautiful, clear water... hoping to see that at the end of this post!
