Since I love to travel, and I love to take photos, you might think that I really love going someplace new on each trip, and I do. On the other hand, sometimes it’s nice to go to places you enjoy and are familiar with, like when Angela and I go to Vegas. We’ve been a few times, and really enjoy certain things and can’t wait to go do them again.
In terms of photography, there’s something to be said for going back to Vegas as well. Yeah, there are plenty of places in Vegas I’ve already taken dozens of shots of. Of course, in Vegas, each trip brings a new place that was recently built too, but it’s also sort of nice to simply walk around looking for the “something different” to shoot. Finding a new angle, a new view, a different time of day, etc. compared to the shots I’ve taken on previous trips, makes for a fun challenge. Sometimes that challenge pushes you to try new things, like go on a tethered hot-air balloon ride. 😉
So, my photography tip to you, is to go somewhere familiar and challenge yourself to find a new way to look at it! Heck, even if you’re not into photography, find a new way to look at the things around you every day.
