A large, crowded, and unfamiliar city can be an exciting place for any photographer. I love the chance to photograph the unfamiliar while traveling, but on my recent trip to Chicago I found myself utterly overwhelmed by the possibilities.
Interestingly, I had no problem taking photos for Facebook or Instagram with my iPhone. It was a great way to document everywhere I was going because I knew that everywhere would be geotagged. The problem was, I also knew that by leaving my DSLR tucked away in its bag I was missing out on a huge opportunity for creative fulfillment.
