Of course, that’s not a message to Megan and Tyler. They are amazing and I’m excited about the life and the love they’re building with each other. It’s a warning to photographers.
Railroad track photos are popular in the photo community. You have to know what you want, as in this case where I created a partial frame with lines leading up to my subject: young love. But sometimes, without a plan, it’s just a lazy location for portraits. That tends to have you staying there longer and you could end up in a dangerous situation. I mean, if you think about it, it’s like taking photos in the middle of the street.
In my case, we were quick, I had a look out in Misty and I had the plan. Shoot and get out of there. I’m not saying you should or should not do it. Just watch it.
