Break the Rules

Brett Holman scouting locations in Anza Borrego.

Don’t be afraid to break the rules.I know the basic rule of thumb is photograph at the magic hours of the day, early morning and late evening.I also know that silhouettes should have some detail in the shadows. But sometimes you have to break the rules shoot when the sun is harsh and leave out the detail, painters do it all the time why can’t we?What I’m saying is if you are trying to create a certain feeling to your image throw out the rules and go for it, just be aware some people might not like that you broke them!
