On-The-Go Photography (OTG) seems to imply a conflict of terms. How can a person be on-the-go and still produce great photographs? Why must great photographers always have to wait and be patient? OTG Photography is for the person who wants to balance photography with the in-the-moment nature experience. Once a photograph becomes the main objective, the in-the-moment nature experience becomes secondary.
OTG Photography is for the person who wants to travel light (under 4 pounds), travel simply and still wants to take great photographs.
The photographs displayed on Outdoor Eyes were taken with a digital camera. The image quality was reduced in order to speed up the loading time on the Internet. This has no reflection on the original quality of the photographs.
You can forget about your conventional tripod, your bulky camera bags, your padded backpacks and your multiple lenses. With OTG Photography, you will learn how to use the minimum to get the maximum photography opportunities... while still balancing the in-the-moment nature experience. If you ever read about William Henry Jackson, one of the best-known of early landscape photographers, you would have learned of the difficult process he had to endure to photograph. He had to travel by horseback, then by mule and his equipment weighed over 300 pounds. He had to unload the equipment, set up camp, prepare the glass plate and on and on. Yet, even today, his photographs are still of exquisite beauty. He really knew how to use the minimum to produce the maximum.
I admit... there will be some limitations and some disappointments with OTG Photography. But that occurs in every situation. You WILL NOT take every photograph perfectly and you WILL miss out on some great photography opportunities. But, whatever photography opportunity you might miss, you still will capture that moment in your mind's eye (where film and digital could never approach). You will see more and you will enjoy photography more because you will maintain that fine balance of seeing nature, being a part of nature and taking the perfect photograph.

Uncle Tim's Bridge In Wellfleet On Cape Cod In Horizontal Or Vertical?
I couldn’t decide which photograph of Uncle Tim’s Bridge in Wellfleet I like better… the horizontal or vertical. What do you think? If you’ve never gone over the bridge and walked the trail, it’s worth the walk. There is a nice overlook with benches where you can sit and enjoy the view.
Beautiful Snowy Egret Reflection At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.
