Preparation, Patience and Persistence

I spend a lot of time of shooting in areas that I teach workshops. I find that an increased familiarity with a place gives my students-and myself a better chance at getting great photographs.

Come April showers, street sweepers will clean better, umbrella salesman will clean up, and outdoor photographers will fret.
