Be Prepared! That is the Boy Scout’s Motto and as a photographer you have to live by that motto too!!! Jack and I arrived in the Palouse to a surprise, less risk green fields than I’ve ever seen! It seems the winter was long and hard and the price of wheat has also dropped, so less fields have been planted and lots of ground lies brown and bare. The long fields of view with rolling green hill after hill are simply not here, this year. What to do? Thankfully Jack and I are prepared and with a lot of scouting have still found enough lush fields, old rustic barns and Americana to produce some great images.

My point to this blog entry is not to boo hoo about the less than ideal conditions, but to make the point that as a shooter, you have to learn to make lemonade out of lemons! This is still a strikingly beautiful place with lots of very interesting things to compose and photograph. The next time you find yourself challenged by conditions, step up to the plate and find a way to make it work for you!
