Revisiting a location – Plantation Cabins – Charleston

Revisit locations where you are interested in capturing images. Not only does the lighting and foliage change the subject but with a little work over a period of time your perspective of the images you choose to capture will also change. 

Over the years I have past by these old cabins and have tried many times to capture them and every time I have not been happy with the images. My exposure and depth of field have always been correct but there was always something missing.

Plantation Cabins – Charleston

On this wet overcast morning  I had focused on a fallen Live Oak tree with wonderful roots and vines weaved around it. After I had finished with the fallen Live Oak I was heading back to my car to head out for a late breakfast when looked through the water and trees and saw these old cabins as I had always wanted to see them. It felt like I was looking at a composition from a different time and breakfast could wait a while longer.

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
