“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

MILA BRIDGER, Marco Is­land bro­ken­pix­el­pro­duc­tion.com/mi­labridger.blogspot.com “For me, it’s the setup. I dream and sketch the im­age from my head on the ap­pear­ance and then I try to set up the way I imag­ined it. Of course dur­ing the setup and photo shoot things can change the di­rec­tions … and that’s good, too.”

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.”
