Another early start this morning. Once or twice a year I teach landscape photography at the school of photography in Groningen city. It includes seven evening courses and two field trips. This morning we had our second and last field trip. We had postponed it several times due to bad weather but this morning our timing was spot on with beautiful light. I took the students to a small waterfront village called Zoutkamp on the edge of Lauwersmeer National Park. It's a picturesque fishing village with countless opportunities for good compositions and great views. So it's a great place for practicing your skills as a landscape photographer. Lead-in lines can be found everywhere and there's a great mixture between wide open views and more enclosed compositions. Furthermore the sun is rising more in the southeast this time of year which suites this location better.
