Georgia photography reveals a state that honors a past that still lingers, although much of it has “gone with the wind,” as well as a new, progressive attitude for the 21st century.
Atlanta is where that New-South perspective will be most evident in your Georgia photography. It’s the one southern America city that has reinvented itself to be more broadly sophisticated, creating a culture of youthful entertainment and family-friendly fun. The nightlife may sparkle and move to an urban beat on Peachtree Street and in the Buckhead district and The Underground at Five Points, but the people of Atlanta are not about to forget its place in the history of the Civil War and, more recently, the Civil Rights Movement. You can take Georgia photos of one at Stone Mountain just outside Atlanta and the other at the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Much of that glorified past can be found in Savannah, where your Georgia photography will capture the gracious architecture and beautifully restored neighborhoods. Wander through Historic Savannah with your digital camera always ready to take Georgia photos of the quiet squares and parks, with their statues and fountains; traditional antebellum and Victorian-era homes; museums and forts; and the Riverfront Plaza. For a contrasting selection of Georgia photography, head to the natural beauty of the Atlantic coast and the barrier islands. The sunrises are spectacular, the light is soft and pleasing and your family and friends will become equally attractive subject matter for your Georgia pictures, as they caper across the beach and discover lighthouses and other attractions.
Cities change and grow, but your Georgia photography of the state’s natural beauty will record timeless images of deep forests, inviting mountains and meandering streams and rivers. If you love to experience and photograph the color-splashed fall foliage, then northeast Georgia is where you’ll find the best panoramas for your Georgia photography. Then, become part of all that natural wonder, with a day or two of hiking, biking and wild-river rafting. Learn how to keep your camera steady, since you’ll want Georgia pictures of your family and friends enjoying the adventure, fun and relaxation.
To find the Georgia countryside, where the Old South is most splendidly preserved, visit the Plantation Trace region of Georgia. A leisurely tour of these rural areas will reveal many grand plantations to include in your Georgia photography, but much of that past is found in small-town museums, tours and quaint shops.
Your Georgia photography wouldn’t be complete without a family expedition to the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. This wonderland of nature and wildlife is an American treasure. You can experience its many lowland habitats comfortably by boat or rail tour or follow in the footsteps of the original explorers with a trek across open country. Strike into the heart of the wilderness in a canoe to reach those less accessible, but rewarding Georgia photography locations. From the headwaters of the Suwannee River, you’ll glide slowing into the half-million acres of the Okefenokee, with outstanding Georgia photos to take at every turn.
