Photography Tips: How to find photos when the location’s ‘boring’.


trying to find interesting images somewhere which is
every day which is normal for you can be very very difficult its
it’s very hard to see pictures somewhere that you’ve already
done to death so it’ll be interesting to come out here into the forest where I live and see
what I can find we’ll just go for a walk and try and find two or three interesting pictures and talk you through what I’m doing as I look for them now you might be thinking but mike you’re in a forest, for goodness sake with nice light and a bit of autumn colour starting to happen, a bit of blue sky and that’s completely true people travel
from all over the country and from further afield to come
here and visit the New Forest but for me I’ve done it to death I’ve
lived here for a long long long time I’ve seen it all before it’s very hard to get inspired
about somewhere where you’ve seen it all before i’ve just come back from our myanmaur workshop and I think the images I took out there
are some the best I’ve ever taken and it’s because I was so buzzing, the adrenaline was pumping so hard that it came out in the pictures to let’s have a little let’s see what
the key is to get yourself inspired to go find some interesting images somewhere that is every day and normal for you. I find the key to finding pictures is to notice
something that interests you and then take lots of pictures of it, and as you take shots you’ll start to look at them and think mm that worked, that didn’t quite work. Now I’ve come here cause i’m interested by this pools of light on the ferns, I like the colours, the lights coming towards me so that back lit, i’m gonna be shooting into the light not gonna have to move fairly quickly with this because the
lights changing the Suns moving shadows already coming across this since I first
noticed it which will help with my exposure so
let’s just see what can we do to start getting of focus here we go, I wanna see how close I can get because I wanna look along this little piece of fern, I can’t go as close as that. but i do like the colors in the light on a
shallow depth to feel so im using my widest possible aperture I’m using f4 what’s my shutter speed this is all part
my seven building blocks for photography right among the three hundred the second
shutter speed the lens 55 so I can take my iso down a bit, let’s go down I was on 800 actually, here we go im on 400 ive got a 150th of a second with a 50 mm lens nice and fast wont get camera shake. lets get this shot in the bag quick before, here we go and there we go, it’s just a nice little picture and as we walk around things will build
things ideas will start to grow but there’s one quite like the light down here too, these little ferns down here are now back lit, it’s quite interesting. Keep looking around all the time when you’re in an environment because things change its which wasn’t there earlier something
some close up the stuff but just like the thought of all yes they look lovely what does my
histogram have to tell me says I’m a bit dark so I just wanna increase my exposure a bit I don’t to peak in the highlights there
we go that’s looking really nice with the XT one other histogram display
in the viewfinder so I can increase my exposure that like how am I
gonna do that I’m gonna do my shutter speed if I can because I
don’t want to a big depth of field I want it nice and shallow I also want to get on with it because the lights going to change, I like that its a much more woodland feel shot make sure my cameras level and take it. what was my shutter speed? 80th at 55, little bit dodgey im gonna take my iso up little bit as a safety shot was quite nice little or Tom nope
woodland shot I think something which is just draw my eye are these little red berries sitting up here, red and green they work really really
well together they’re good colors and the light as you can see is smacking into my
face here but for the berries their backlit now
the angle you’re looking at them from they look kinda dull particu- when you
get a little bit closer when you come on the other side and put
the light behind them yeah its transformational isn’t it really different to how we gonna shoot
the shot well I am thinking my way through and I’m thinking with my focal
length because I wanna longer focal X I want to isolate these berries against
the background I took a test shot with the wider lens at fifty-five Mil
and I don’t like having that black heavy tree trunk going on in the shot it just
kinda disturbs me shoot test shots new get yourself more inspired and motivated as you look at them asking for help after questions so how
would we go about the shot what we gonna think well im gonna think a longer focal length with the narrow field of
view so I can lose the tree trunk I didn’t like i want a shallow depth the field, that leads me to wide aperture exactly see so simple isn’t it? see stack this stuff together what exposure? well they’re back lit we could have an issue I don’t know just gonna have to have a look so lets try it I’ve got my longer lens on which is the on that works the one that looks right well from here got my I was a Sr 55-200 lens on at the moment as I’m just
to close so I need to move back I’m gonna come back and shoot from over
here somewhere just focus on my berries now what’s my
exposure doing to sum up do quite like the XT one is I
can look at a histogram in the viewfinder I was need to make sure I have not lens
flare this is really worth checking in I just little around the front there’s a little bit like just touching
the bottom of the glass but it’s only a tiny bit I think we’ll be okay I cant see any lens flare in the view finder so focus up on the berries what’s my
exposure telling me looks on FB care folks that don’t wanna
burn out the highlights blood on a black but shadow day so I’m just gonna take my spies it down a bit into my
histogram showing the most minimal amount at Peking on the
right hand and focus on my barry’s and check my shop speed which is at 210 because I’m already using almost 800 ISO I don’t want cameras
check and no one would I know it’s bright and sunny but what’s
going on over there his dark is woodland so you know I’m think it through that’s one way of doing things on just
thinking how would it look if we shot a vertical shot because I
think they look quite nice this is all about you know keep practicing to get
itself inspired try different options and keep playing with them kick that stool at least a nice two day
it was windy it be wandering around in dreadful okay how we go how we doing all Macy’s I moved back to get a little bit
of little bit at the overhanging holy into my shot turn it kinda frames
and I sorta like that actually yeah try again but holy later in the frame here we go sorry the main pit with the
berries later in the frame a donut for cropland Leafs I see how
long I’m spending fiddling looking in the viewfinder and this is
why I find you gonna do this stuff on your own because if you are out
walking with your partner or a friend you wanna drive them
absolutely insane insight one more in close out very very
careful going into lens flare okay let’s take that one
from their focus now I know I could crop this in
Lightroom or Photoshop or something but I want to make up on you here in the
sunshine during this tough don’t forget to look all around I’m praying at the ground because I’m
gonna find some their fungus is one hand is a little one Canon here
little tiny fungus was lost in the leaves but the light is coming across from the side
which is flowing nicely cross is giving a shape
and the circular form so against all those leaves just kinda
works really really nicely how we gonna shoot this
how we gonna do it well hun sinking they several ways for
small issues unusual angle wide-angle let’s go to eighty millimeter
lens this get down low he’s my little sleepy
out screen because easier than trying to lie on the floor
when we look at trees stuff going on over there we got nice light at the
moment I would be fairly quick I wanna put I wanna look sideways on and my little
mushroom since we might were focus point where I
want to be a single point were focus week I am focus on the mushroom that
looks so cool release British an idiot the field on using f/2.8 I got the camera almost on the
ground I’m going is close to the shroom as I
can lucca the hat I really really like that it’s
just a different sort of an angle now it suggests that there’s a leaf not
seeking a swim pop copper those leaves why so we’ve got
a little bit more height now whether this will work with
roaches really I don’t know we will find out Cooper fair I can see
most awk I much prefer that and we got the leaves
and all that stuff we got tonight to scattering focus bit too
close come on you get static likes here we go as my focus their the seagram a veranda gotta find the
place now the cameras getting exposure
absolutely spot-on all on the site I have had to adjust in
any way I’m using up to purchase at the camera do with it has another way we teach you
this handout from above because we’ve got this this shape spots
leaves back in there because I’m modified it did not doing this or to
make it look different to the rest of the forest floor cuz we got the circular shape against
the leaves the line is going across a is gonna that really great so how about
shooting from above extend the lens a bit get it’s not my
son dignified place I know it’s looking good is looking good
by histogram says it’s about Ryan sentences could be brighter now and then the
brightest on the right now then I this but we got lovely 9c for get closer EC gotta find the place way a shot works that’s already have today I really kinda
like that because its shake thing circular against early see how simple that was
songs using what F fall 55 millimetres that’s all there is to it really is net
symbols you know what I actually started to cry enjoy that as
we got going before he came and started filming I was
kinda dreading shooting in the forest in finding a good pitches and I did I
really enjoyed it you should remain are kinda 5 myself up
about an environment I know only too well so I hope that’s when are some help to
Oceania few techniques if it’ll ideas I know now and many people say mike has

    I agree with "do this stuff on your own". My wife loves walking through the woods with me. But hates it if I stop and fiddle with my camera endlessly for  5 minutes to get a nice photo of something she can't really see.

    I started in photography in the 60's and after 16 years managing a camera store and being a studio owner for 32 years, I decided to take a break.  Now that I'm getting back into photography, I've found that I've been having far  too many "no pictures here" moments.  However, while watching this video, I realized that a major part of my problem has been going out with a photographer friend who shoots nothing like I do so that between the two of us, we do little besides critique what's wrong with the location.

    I think that my next outing will be with a Hasselblad or a TLR, a couple of rolls of Tri-X, a tripod, AND by myself.  I just might be surprised with the results.  Excellent video, Mr. Browne, Thanks!

    I have this problem, especially right now because it's winter. The snow has melted enough that it isn't soft and you can see ground, so everything looks dead and not very attractive. How do I find things to photograph in conditions like this?

    Hi Mike another interesting video, I have been watching your videos for quite a while and love the manner in which you explain everything simply and clearly. I am recovering from a brain injury and have had a lot of time to learn about photography, as it is something i can do on my own, you are quite right about leaving partners and friends behind it make the job so much easier with no-one pressuring you to move on. I use Jpeg most of the time as using Raw requires a lot of post processing. Question for you on a field trip do you use JPEG or Raw
    I only took up photography as a hobby maybe 3 years ago my flickr page is www.flickr.com/paulsharkey if you have time can you have a look and let me know what you think

    The second Mike Browne video I've watched. Could be quite fun. Some nice ideas and tips so that's worthwhile use of time. I don't stay serious for long though. There was one time in your soliloquy when I had to say to the screen "Take the Shot, Mike, Take the Shot Now". Then oddly, I could hear Mike sounding like Ricky Gervais and waited for the glint in the eye…. I'll look for some more videos

    p.s. One thing I often notice is that the photos you take have a much better colour cast to the ones I do. Mine look pale and lifeless, but your photos of the ferns are warm and vibrant. Is this post processing, if so how do you do that? If not, what are the most common reasons for lack of vibrancy?

    Hi Mike, after years of using mobile phones for pictures (my current mobile is an LG G3 and features a great cam), I'm finally moving up to a real camera to enhance my hobby a bit more. For my budget, all I could afford was 150$ towards a real camera, and found a barely-used Canon SX40 HS, complete with charger, external flash, one new battery, and carrying case for 140$.  My question is, is it a decent starter cam for a beginner photo enthusiast?  And did I over pay for this camera being that it's apparently a few years old already?  Thanks, and I'm a new subscriber by the way, I look forward to using your videos as teaching guides and learning tools   =-)I've been told I take beautiful pictures, but I feel like cameras won't be so forgiving, nor as easy to interpret what I'm trying to re-imagine.

    About the mushroom pics. Picking and eating mushrooms happens to be a hobby of mine (since 1975), and I really miss a shot where we can clearly see the gills. Based on your pictures I'm not even sure what species it is, but the main thing from an artistic point of view is that the gills just make a mushroom picture much more fascinating. In my opinion.

    Hey Mike, popped by for some inspiration and ideas (again), and notice some of your vids, this one especially, has subtitles added. Now not being pernickety, but I haven't laughed so much at some of the translations, absolute classics… 🙂

    You know what's the worst?… Having bad light. And by bad light I mean very flat light. – I live in The Netherlands and this winter we basically have English weather, just thick overcast and dull and even light, making for low contrast and making everything look boring as well. – That's especially apparent when you're a photographer. – I have no problem being creative and to improvise, but when the lighting is just so dull, I'm so uninspired and unstimulated visually.

    Thank you for the video! I was inspired to visit my local park with a new perspective – and took only my macro lens. I saw it in new ways, and have a few wonderful images to show for it!

    This is such a helpful video, thank you. I find when I'm lacking creativity, I try to fill up my viewfinder with the subject, tends to help =)

    Thanks for this brilliant video. The problem is when someone who is not talented do the same things and still get shitty results. 🤪

    I have found it the best feeling in the world when you nail a great shot in these places that bore you to death!

    Very interesting video and inspirational, very helpful as much of that I often overlook, will need to try scouting around the small things myself at some point, great video and love the overhead view of the mushroom, so effective and reminds me of good stock images.

    Hi thanks for this video, I enjoyed it a lot. I have a strange question, but I am wondering if it is just me or if others experience it too. When you close one eye when looking in the view finder, does your other eye feel heavy and strained after spending a while taking photos? I have had to stop closing one eye because I think it might damage my sight in the long term. It feels like one eye has had a work out and the other hasn't. Do you find this or am I just weird?

    Hi Mike,
    Very nice tutorials you're making. Actually I'm a professional photographer, but I believe that everyday we should learn many things, no matter whatever our level or expertise in our profession is. In that context, I have been watching your videos for a while, and found it to be very interesting. So, keep up the good work. I look forward for many more videos like this from you.

    Hi,
    Try to compare master paintings of landscape and portraits of masters with photography. That would be a nice tutorial and I would like to see your views about that.

    hi I have seen some of your videos now and am going to take one of your courses …have you done a video or covered camera maintenance and lens cleaning i.e. should isopropanol be used on a coated lens or neat alcohol type issues

    First time i've seen this one. I love the way you can find something to shoot that most people would'nt look twice at. I'm on week 3 of the UBC and already notice a marked improvement in my photos. Just by thinking before shooting. I also like the teaching method you use. Simple plain language. Being a middle aged military veteran i can relate to the style…… Explanation – Demonstration – Repartition. Keep up the great work and keep it coming.
