Do you ever feel visually stuck when photographing? You just can't seem to find an image? The light's coming and your stressing? Well, relax, it happens to all of us. On the last morning of my recently completed Arches/Canyonlands Workshop, I was busy helping my students when I realized the warm sunrise light was about to paint the red rock formations of Dead Horse Point State Park. Because I had been there a multitude of times over the past five years, I wanted something a bit different, but what? Feeling a bit stressed and visually stuck, I finally went to my Go-To List I had memorized and found this image. To learn more about this, please read my latest blog post: Feeling Visually Stuck? Resort to Your Go-To List!
