Perspective-Painted Hills-Oregon | Photography Tours and Workshops

Photography is such a personal adventure and it is all to do with how you see things, it’s your interpretation on what you see. that’s what so wonderful about photography. You can take a bunch of photographers to one spot and say “go shoot” and at the end of the day, have a look at their works and they will all be different.We all see things differently.
When I go out shooting, I get so involved with what I’m doing and it is not just taking the shot and running, for me it is looking around you being aware of what is around you and if you you can do that, a whole new world opens up to you.
Oregon is a wonderful State. For me it can be divided up into 4 main areas.You have the desert areas, awesome coastline, sensational waterfalls and the mountain regions. I loved this State, I wish I had more time there but what I did explore, gave me  a taste of this wonderful place they call Oregon.
The series of pictures that you see here are all taken within a small area of about 50 metres. The next time you are out and about, once you have shot the iconic shot, open your eyes, look around  and see the wealth of material that there is there to shoot.Once you learn perspective, once you can visualize this with your own eyes before even taking the camera out of its bag, there will be no stopping you in terms what you shoot.
For Pete, visualizing what you are looking at before you shoot it, means you are in touch with all that is around you and for me, this is why I love taking my time in shooting an area .
When you look at these pics, I have not walked more than 50 metres. This is a quaint area, not a big area at all and the whole walk from where you park the car would be only take you 15 minutes.
In our world we have wonderful areas to shoot and it was here that i saw something really sad and this was not the only time i saw this but what stood out here was the walk was only 15 minutes at the most, more like 8 minutes to the end point with a slight rise. A couple got out of there car, he was extremely fat and we are not talking big boned here, lets say it as it was!! He sat on the benched and watched his wife do the walk. She completed it, they got in the car and off they went. She did the walk on her own and she was in good shape. i meta similar situation in Bryce Canyon.

To get the best out of your photography, don’t allow yourself to get so out of shape that everything is an effort!!!!

Author Pete Dobré

Pete's photography is self taught. As a young child photography was an interest. His passion for the varying landscapes of Oz comes from frequent visits as a youngster, to his Gandparent's sheep farm in Barmera, a small country town in South Australia. Pete Dobré is a Freelance Photographer who blazes the trail for 6 months each year, capturing awe-inspiring images. Pete's work expresses his creative flair, emotions and love for the natural scapes of Australia. He remembers the hot day when he was 8, leaving town for the farm. His parents had an old car. Within about 2 kilometres of reaching the farm gate, they were bogged on a small red sand dune. The flies were buzzing continuously and the heat was beating down. Sticks, leaves and branches were wedged under the back tyres, to get the car moving. His mum was in a panic but Pete thought that it was exciting. From that moment he knew that he loved being out in creation, with the sense of adventure in the wild. This is where Pete's passion began. Photography for Pete is an expressive means for visual communication. He says, 'There is never a boring moment in my work. There is always something to photograph and I love being creative. The only limit to creativity is a lack of creativity.' Pete's aim as a photographer is to present images that provoke and stimulate the mind, to capture God's awesome creation and to share this with others. If Pete can do a little justice to God's creativity, then he is quietly satisfied. As a photographer Pete's inspiration and passion for his work comes from knowing God who created everything in the beginning. Knowing God, the Creator gives more substance and meaning to what he captures on film. Pete sees his role as freezing a moment in time and history which will never be repeated exactly the same again. The light, clouds and seasons will always be different. Pete's love for natural conditions at different times of the day, displaying varying moods and cloud formations makes his work very special and eye catching.
