Frank Knor was written a really interesting piece on what he calls “Fluke Photography”. It’s full of trips for getting travel photographs one might otherwise miss. Here’s his introduction:
Fluke can mean many things, however in this context and in accordance with the Webster dictionary
it should be taken to mean “something produced by a stroke of luck, an unexpected benefit or advantage
resulting from an uncertain course of events.” When applied to photography then a great fluke photograph is
one taken quickly in difficult situation which turns out to be a success. For a travel photographer when it
comes to fluke photography one can do a number of things to improve the odds of you having that stroke of
luck on occasion. Many of history’s great photographs are really flukes, not carefully planned photos.
