From the bloggers at Wheeling It.
Given that I just told you (in my last post) that there’s no way any living person can really capture the Grand Canyon, it’s kind of ironic that I’m writing a huge photo tips page.
It’s a bit like a couch potato explaining to an athlete how to run a marathon, and I’m going to let you know right now that’s exactly what this is. I’m not a “pro” and I don’t profess to have “gotten” the Canyon (not even close), but I had a darn fun time trying and if you’re anything like me you can’t help but try too.
Also I have a history on this one. The first time we came to the Grand Canyon in 2010 (North Rim) I took ~100 shots and I was so disappointed in the outcome that not a single photo made the blog.
So, this time around I did some research to try and help improve my odds. I’m a geek that way and part of what I enjoy doing is sharing knowledge. So, even if I didn’t get the shot, I managed to glean some key tips that got me much closer to what I envisioned in my minds eye.
This not only improved my photo journey, but (perhaps more importantly) it vastly reduced my photo frustration. So basically if it helped me, I figure it might help you too.
