I was out and about shooting some landscape-type stuff last week when I found a little honey hole of fantastic scenery. I couldn't wait to get back to the location to shoot all kinds of various photo-goodness. As usual, I was tracking my exploration on GPS tracker app on my iPhone, so I knew exactly where I had been.
Well, yesterday came, and I went out with Laura ready to shoot a new piece and knowing that my new location would be perfect for what I had in mind. It was gloomy, rainy, the snow was an ugly, half-melted mess - in other words, it was a perfect day! After Laura arrived at my house, we gathered our props, she put on the wardrobe supplied by Lauren Lynch (designer extraordinaire!), and we headed out. I pulled up the GPS app to get the coordinates of my new honey hole, and lo and behold! It wasn't there. I had forgotten to log it!
Well, being a typical 38 or 39-ish year old guy (give or take), I never let on to Laura that I had no idea where the hell we were going, and off we went! I think I did a convincing enough job of driving through the back roads of Dane County, Wisconsin until I managed to find our spot, and it looked fantastic!
We shot for about 15 minutes before I knew that I had what I needed and then called it a day. I told the car's GPS to take us home, and away we went.* Once home, I put the equipment away and started editing. This one came together pretty quickly, and I'm very happy with what we got. I am excited to unveil it here.
Without further ado, here is "Dreaming of the Golden Years."
*I forgot to log the location in the GPS app again. I SO wish I was a smart man.
