One of the shooting excursions at Click Away was a bus trip to Saltair on the Great Salt Lake. Saltair has an interesting history as being a recreational hub, but is now deserted since the shore line has receded.
Photo Tip: Try to get a wide shot of a building to show the expanse of space around it.
The bus dropped us off over a mile away from the building, so I didn’t quite make it close up. I did however manage to get this sign with Saltair in the background.
Photo Tip: Grab pictures of signage to help you remember where you’ve been.
This was the visitor center where the bus had stopped.
Photo Tip: Auxilliary buildings will help tell the story of where you’ve been. They might not always be pretty.
The Great Salt Lake.
Photo Tip: Go wide. It’s a big lake.
More of the lake. This time, with ripples.
Photo Tip: If you’re photographing a body of water, try to get both the stillness and the movement if there is any.
More lake. This time, with salt.
Photo Tip: Anything neat washing up on shore? In this case, I could see small deposits of salt along the edges of the water.
And you may have already heard that I have a thing with photographing my feet.
