Tip of the Week: Know Your Location

 

Before you begin to shoot, it is always important to know your surroundings. You should know the lay of the land, so that even if you are noticed, you can proceed to some other place. You should also reach the location an hour or two prior to the shoot and explore the surroundings thoroughly. During this exploration, you might discover areas that can be useful vantage points from which you can shoot without being noticed. Knowing the location will also help you pre-visualise the frames and moments you would like to capture.
