After a full day at sea it was good to get off the ship and explore the picturesque city of Ketchikan. The ship provided an excellent vantage point to shoot from (without a tripod, which I would have preferred to use but didn’t take with me on this trip.) and capture these nice shots of this quaint port town that caters to the cruise ship industry. Located on Revillagigedo Island, Ketchikan has a population of just over 8,000 but, you wouldn’t know it for all us tourists, the streets were busy with shoppers and sightseers.
Using the ship to shoot from maybe a no brainer but, picking the right composition, view and if available to you, time of day; can take your photographs from ordinary snap shots to memorable photographs as I would like to think these three photos do. Always go for unique and your photos will tell the story themselves.
