    *just thinking out loud here*

    If you were placed in an area outside of what you are used to (photography wise), distractions (you define what that means to you) everywhere, and were forced to take a great picture how would you set yourself up to take a great shot?

    What would you look for? What steps would you take?

    Just trying to get some ideas from others though process.

    I would probably start by trying to figure out a way to make the distractions work for my picture. Then look for a way to set up a good composition. Or maybe get up high and take a picture of everything with a wide DOF.

    I would start by looking for strong lines and shapes. I am going to be putting myself in this kind of situation on Friday actually, I am headed to Boston to roam around the city and take pics which I have never done before so it should be interesting to see what I get.

    I really like single subject shots myself. I guess because im just starting out and its easier at the moment. So i would probably look for the most interesting stationary objects first and focus on them. I think too many distractions would just overwhelm me at this point. :er:

    I personally would look for the nicest unusual lighting, then search within the lighting to find a nice subject... ;)

    I hike a lot. Usually there is no pressure to 'make' a great shot. But sometimes something catches my eye and then I will work from several angles.

    Sunlight, shades, shadows, shapes...all things to consider.
