Cape Cod isn't exactly known as a landscape photography destination, at least not in the circles I run in; however, I do think that it has incredible photographic potential. This potential is best tapped into by a local expert; someone with extensive knowledge of place with a real connection to the area.
Today's guest on the F-Stop Collaborate and Listen Podcast, Betty Wiley is perhaps the single photographer people think of when it comes to being an expert on Cape Cod. She has been photographing it extensively since 2006 when she moved there and hasn't looked back. Her images are used by several local publications, where she has found a great deal of success.
On this week's episode, we discuss:
- How Betty got into photography and how her love affair with Cape Cod developed.
- Including man-made objects and people in our landscape photographs.
- Why Betty has become so in love with photographing lighthouses.
- How and why editing is important in our landscape photography.
- Managing expectations in the field.
- Planning tools for making better photographs on the coast.
- The challenges with criticism.
- Editing tools and how to use them.
- And a lot more!
