Photograph what really interests you, something you're pas sionate about. Ask yourself what you think and feel about this subject and why you are photographing it. If you photo graph a flower only because it's pretty, or a mountain because it's a landmark, your pictures will reveal only the surface.
Sunrise and sunset light can be beautiful, but you can shoot all day long. In high noon light, shoot downward from a high vantage point; in harsh light, shoot in the shade or indoors; if hard shadows fall over the subject, pop some strobe in there. Do something interesting, make any lighting situation work for you-it can, if you do it creatively.
