Three Tips to Maximize Photos in Unknown Locations – Episode 216

One of the things I was challenged with the last five weeks of my life was being about to photograph the foregrounds I wanted to reach because of safety rules in Haiti.

Now, I understand that Haiti is an unusual location to shoot in, but I would recommend visiting third world countries for unique photographs.

I struggled with three things while I was there:

  1. Reaching great foregrounds
  2. Knowing what lenses to take
  3. Finding locations to shoot

Since I’m your crash test dummy for locations and situations for photography, I tested out some ideas I had and came away from my trip very pleased with my photos!

So, here are three tips for maximizing your photos in new locations!
