Find the “good” light when you are photographing your subjects, but also look out for interesting shadows.
When all the stars are aligned, maybe, just maybe, you’ll find both.

This image was chosen as one of the Top 10 Favorites in the Shadow Challenge! What an honor! YAY!!!
There is a certain tranquility about this image…
It’s in the way the father and son are walking. You can tell they’ve walked that pier before. You can tell they are silent.
It’s the calmness of the water. You can tell it’s early morning. You can tell the boats and the ducks have not yet stirred.
It’s in the soft lines of the plant like watercolor brush strokes. Oh fine, I admit I had to lurk like a bobcat to get this shot!

See the grass in the forefront?
Yup. I had to lay in who-knows-what to get this natural frame of a sweet family enjoying the sun on a Winter day.
It was completely worth it to capture the moment and gorgeous backlight.
PHOTOGRAPHY TIP: Stop and look around you. There are natural frames everywhere!

BEST OF 2011: FUNNIEST PHOTOS
3-Way Tie for #3
Capturing a moment means the image wouldn’t have the same appeal it if was taken a second later or a second earlier.
It could also capture an emotion or the essence of a relationship. Or tell a page of a story.
