  2. What a great and well written article. As a person who is constantly trying to find their niche in photography I find myself pulled by both lines of thought…pure or processed. Botton line though always seems to be just do what you like, create what looks good. None of it is reality, it’s all art! 🙂

  5. Partially off topic, but given the sign in the photo…

    Out west (at least Oregon/Idaho) no trespassing and no hunting signs are posted almost exclusively for hunters and generally only deer/elk, obviously everyone is bound by them all the same. Most folks don’t know that many landowners will grant access to their land, even for hunting. Generally what it entails is being courtious and asking them. I’ve worked on several ranches and farms that posted and granted access to many who asked and many other owners told me they did the same. Actually in some states the law provides the same protections without posting, a fence, ditch, farmed field, or other obvious indication of private property suffice. So don’t think there needs to be a sign to trespass illegally.

    My point is, if you see a place you’d like to shoot then go ask. If you don’t know who to ask, then stop at the nearest place (that looks well lived in) and they generally know who owns the land for a mile or three. Not only can they tell you who, but how to find them and/or their phone number. Many will also know who in the area are known to allow access and who you’ll waist your time with. Give it a try, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. In fact the person you stop to ask might tip you to some interesting subjects in the area that you might not otherwise see.
