California & Oregon Coast

February 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

People often ask, how do you manage to take good landscape pictures when you travel with your family on a family vacation? Well, the short answer is, I don't expect to.

Here is what I believe about travel and photography:

if you want to get on a real photography trip, don't take your family with you; If you are on a family vacation trip, snap a couple of shots whenever and wherever you can without changing your travel plans, and don't expect any NG cover shots. Maybe you will get lucky to have one or two decent pictures, and you should be happy, because it is your FAMILY trip afterall! Believe me, if you want to do both, everybody will be miserable and your trip will be a disaster.

Here are some pictures taken on my family vacation to California and Oregon in the November of 2011.

常常有朋友問我,你如何可以在和家人旅行時拍出好的風景照?對這問題簡短的回答是:我從未期望在和家人旅遊時會拍出什麽驚豔的作品。

對于旅遊和攝影我是這樣理解的:

如果你想要一個真正的攝影旅程,那麽請不要帶上你的家人;而如果你是和家人在一起度假,那麽請不要期望你可以拍出什麽國家地理分量的作品。如果你可以在旅程中順便拍出幾張像樣的照片,那麽你應該感恩了,因爲,攝影並不是這個旅行的真正目的。如果你過分貪婪兩個都想要,那麽我基本可以保證一路上沒有人會開心,包括你自己在內。

下面這些是我2011年11月份和家人去加州和俄勒岡州度假時順路拍的幾張照片。
