I often get asked "how do I make interesting photos in mundane places?" Well, the same way you make interesting photos in amazing places! No matter where I take photos, I'm always on the hunt for a compelling juxtaposition of light, shape, and color. This is true whether I am photographing some exotic location, or working in my home town of Minneapolis. For example, I made this photo one cold and clear winter day. The golden light of sunset was hitting a sidewalk and building, and I was attracted to the patterns formed by the shadows and light. Once I choose my background composition, I just needed to wait for the right collection of people walking by to complete the shot. After probably hundreds of shots taken, I finally got what I wanted. Even though some random street in downtown Minneapolis probably wouldn't be high on anyone's photo bucket list, by thinking about the scene in terms of light, shape, and color, I was nevertheless able to capture an interesting photograph.
