How Do You Approach an Unfamiliar Location?

New locations can be challenging for all of us. How you approach them can make the difference between a successful image or a frustrating day. This excellent video tutorial features a photographer discussing his approach to working at a new location.

Coming to you from Chris Sale, this great video tutorial discusses how to approach shooting in an unfamiliar location. Even though it can be tough to tackle a new location, the creative challenge is well worth it. One thing that is important to remember, however, is that you do not have to only visit a location once. In fact, a lot of landscape photographers will revisit a specific location many times, whether it is because they are trying to get a specific image or because they want to work the area and explore different compositions, techniques, and more. Do not feel pressured to get every possible shot the first time you visit a location; you will likely end up taking better images the second or third time you visit it. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Sale.
