I’m about to fly out to Bali to defrost for 3 weeks. How cold has it been lately in Sydney ? Right now it’s 12c here and 27c in Bali
I’ve had a few people ask how I go about planning and location scouting when I travel, I thought I would share with you how I do it.
First, I start with a basic Google search of the location I’m going to,
eg, Seminyak to find places of interest then narrow it down to what I like.
I will then search Flickr, 500px to find different comps and time of day so I can decide whether it is a sunrise or sunset location. From the screenshot below you can see the then best time is going to be sunset for the Tanah lot Temple
Then I will use TPE to check out the location in relation to the sun.
In the example, below I will be using the Tanah Lot Temple.
I can pick the date that we arrive and then cycle through the dates to find the best days, as you can see the sun is going to be setting right behind the temple the whole week we are there so that gives me a chance of getting the shot I want. Now I just have to hope for an epic sky!
