In this video, editorial photographer Layne Kennedy illustrates how you can capture elements that aren’t as well-known, with techniques such as converting a shot to stark black and white or shooting a panoramic of the subject. Here, he photographs the Stone Arch Bridge, a historic former railroad bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that crosses the Mississippi River. Layne points out that you can showcase other areas besides the obvious and illustrate that you know the city well and can find other points of beauty.
