Key points of Yosemite to photograph?

3 months 9 hours ago #694282 by Ben Howen
Other than the falls, what are some spots at Yosemite that you would personally want to photograph when visiting?

I've searched on Google and found a number of spots to photograph.  I just won't have the time for everything.  So figured would sway my visit on the most popular spots.  We are driving on up to Oregon so just a quick stop.  

Thank you

You kidding?  Step off the bus and point your camera at anything.  You won't be disappointed.  There is so much there to photograph.

I will recommend visiting Nevada and Vernal Falls, Tunnel View, and Sentinel Bridge.

Never been there, and I'm not likely to get there now in this lifetime.

Whenever I go to a high tourist area with my camera, where thousands upon thousands of photographs have already been taken, I try to find places and angles which are not commonly photographed. Why just repeat what so many other photographers have already taken? I tend to go "behind the scenes" to get "the other view" wherever I can. It adds more interest to my photos and increases the challenge for me to take photos that haven't already been seen millions of times before.

100% agree Yosemite and Yellowstone part two of the most photogenic places in the United States. As mentioned already there are so many places to photograph there you can’t go wrong put your camera and hit the shutter.

Something to keep in mind open up a map and look at or rather find all the small lakes. These are some of the most pristine places to photograph.

Open up an Ansel Adams book, and draw inspiration from his work.  Yosemite was one of his spots.

Just make sure you put some time aside to explore.  7 days will give you plenty of time to get around and explore.  Just so much to see there.
