I’ll be honest: there was a time when I was really over photographing at Fisherman’s Bastion. I was dying to photograph almost anywhere else. I understood why people chose it for their photos, but I couldn’t help dreaming of all the other awesome places around Budapest that deserved attention, too. I was dying for a change of scenery.
But you know what? I think we’ve reached an understanding now. I no longer feel bored by this place that I’ve photographed so many times. In fact, now I feel inspired. Like, how can I see things differently this time? What can I do to mix things up?
Knowing a location so well has perks. If the light is particularly harsh that day, I can quickly adjust without missing a beat. I know how to get the must-have shots with plenty of time for us to experiment and have fun. I’ve also learned that it’s not about the place… it’s about the people, so thanks to everyone who has chosen this beautiful, magical place for me to capture their time in Budapest! We’ve got a pretty good thing going together now.
