Before you other photographers get all pissy about lens flare and HDR and all the other stuff that’s “wrong” with that shot there, allow me to assist amateur shooters in their quest to take better golf landscape shots.
I’m a golfer. And I’m not the kind to hit lots of fairways and greens and play robo-golf, like today’s Tour players. I’m like my pal Roy Bechtol, who claims “it’s boring in the fairway.” I’d rather have a chance to hit a great shot from a tough place than have a chance to screw up an easy one. The photo there reveals a little about my shooting style. Sometimes when I’m shooting design features on foot, I’ll circumnavigate a green, looking for the place I’d most likely find myself with a lob wedge in hand. You know, the only spot where you CAN’T make par unless you sink a 30-footer.
