This is an absolute must if you’re looking to take the best photos to showcase your destination. With so many people travelling so often and to so many places, you can rest assured that almost always the photos you will be taking have been taken before. Your job is to take them better or show a different angle, different story, or different perspective. A prime example of researching a location may be Horse Shoe bend in Arizona.
I received a handy tip off from a photographer two days before arriving that I should not arrive at sunset for the iconic sunset shot, as at this time of year the sun would be directly behind my frame and result in so much backlight that the photo would appear dull and lifeless. This of course is not a hard and fast rule, as you can produce beautiful images by shooting into the sun (try a wide-angle lens and allow the sun to peak out from behind objects). Its not only about knowing where to go, but knowing when to go too.
