In the beginning of this video, Marc said his goal was to capture one good image of the Bixby Bridge. There’s tip No. 1.
  1. When going out on a photo shoot, have a goal in mind. It may change, but it’s good to start the shoot with one.
  2. Move. And move again. Get in the car. Drive. Pull over. Don’t stay in one place. Switch up your angles to try out different shots of the same subject.
  3. Know how your camera reacts to changing light source. In the video you can see how quickly the light is changing and fading, and you need to know your camera well enough to be able to adapt to the rapid changes in light.
  4. Have fun. Don’t take your photoshoot too seriously. Marc made sure to stop and take a minute to appreciate his beautiful surroundings.
