NICK ADAMS, Sanibel nickadamsphotography.com “With people, it’s all about expression. The face will speak a thousand words in a photograph, trying to get natural expressions is a skill that I am still trying to perfect, even after 22 years as a professional photographer. With landscapes, it’s more about putting yourself in the right place at the right time to get a perfect shot.”
DENNIS GINGERICH, Cape Coral gingerichphotoart.com “I do planning to get my best shots. I watch the skies and weather forecasts to get a sense of what the cloud situation will be like. A sky without clouds is boring. Clouds add texture, contrast and color, especially at sunrise and sunset. And if you have water in the photo, then the reflections of the clouds double the impact.”
WILLIAM R. COX, Fort Myers williamrcoxphotography.com “I search literature, the internet and Google Earth to locate the best locations for targeted wildlife, habitats or landscapes, following this with extensive field work mainly by foot to locate the best sites to photograph.”
CLYDE BUTCHER, Venice, Fla.
clydebutcher.com “I go out into the field and accept whatever is presented to me and then do the best I can with that experience. However, I stay out of the deep forest when it is bright and sunny because there is too much contrast in the forest … the black shadows and highlights on the leaves are too far apart, which make for a lousy photo.”
“I dream and sketch the image from my head on the appearance and then I try to set up the way I imagined it.” —Mila Bridger
