One of my biggest challenges as an amateur photographer is recognizing a good photo opportunity when I see it. Sometimes I feel like I need to go to some exotic or remote place to shoot great photography. There really isn’t anything exotic or remote about this photo. It was composed in my sister-in-law’s backyard just before sunset. There is no near-extinct species or interesting culture featured here; it’s just grass and sun. The best way to get that amazing shot is just to find a great light and click the shutter button. It’s a lesson that I am still learning.
