The Waiting Game

The Waiting Game.
 
When you are photographing in an area where lots of people are shooting the same thing, composition is what will set an image apart from others. Photographing Snow Geese was exactly what roughly 50 other photographers were capturing on their sensors at this same time. My group was focusing on landscapes. We talked about including the geese in the landscape. I told my group if they wanted something different from the large groups around us, find an element that is away from the others and wait for the subject to become a part of that frame. The 14 of us sat pointed at the moon, waiting, and when the birds flew in front of it, we shot. 5 seconds later the larger group shot as the birds landed. I wanted to get an image of the group pointed towards the sky while everyone else was pointed directly at the field of geese. I think our group did well!
