But if it's some place which has not been discovered, the only thing i feel that people are worried about giving it away is that you lose the uniqueness of that place in your photo. Then again i believe a great photographer is making a common place look different, giving it different perspective. An example would be, how many times have we seen a shot of the Eiffel Tower
. How often we've seen it being shot from straight on or down from the base up. Well a great photographer will try to find that unique way of shooting it. So at the end of the day, with tonnes of people visiting and taking photos of that place, does it ruin the place or spoil the market cuz ones' photo is no longer unique. Well i dont agree with that. Protect your rice bowl cuz you know a secret place. Hmmmmm. More like afraid of competition cuz someone might have a different and better perspective of that place and can product better photos.
Why do magazines and books
of beautiful picture state locations, f-stop use, camera use in their images? Well cuz they are trying to tell people that even u may know where this place is, know how i shoot this or even copy how i shoot this, it doesn't make you take a better picture than me. Cuz at the end of the day, we want to shoot something different and make it unique in our way. Not unique in the location.
