How It's Done
Under the Rock Arch in Wadi Rum, Jordan
Each destination has its own iconic location, which becomes part of not only every photographer’s but also every visitor’s shooting plan. This beautiful Rock Arch of Jebel Kharaz is exactly such a place in the spectacular Wadi Rum, Jordan. This famous location of sand dunes and canyons, which was an inspiration for Lawrence of Arabia, is annually visited by countless numbers of adventure-seeking travellers. So how to go about creating a photo that has not been taken a million times before?
Well, a good place to start is to visit the location and shoot as many photos from every possible angle that you feel necessary – always thinking each is a unique angle never captured before – just to ‘get it all out of your system’. Once this is done, sit down and enjoy this amazing desert marvel that was created by forces of nature over thousands of years. Only then will your head be clear enough to start thinking about new and unusual way to capture the scene.
