Some friends and colleagues have mentioned that I should tell the story behind some of my photos – how I took them, where and what the challenges were, and so on. I don’t know that my photos are so impressive that they can’t be figured out, and there’s a part of me that believes that a photo should be able to speak for itself and evoke a personal response on its own.
That said, the moments I’ve spent capturing these photos have been among my most cherished creatively. I like to believe that I can remember every great adventure I’ve had, but the truth is I don’t anymore, so these entries are as much for me as they are for anyone who thinks there might be something interesting to read in my process.
The instructions and explanations that I’m providing here aren’t meant to be academic. This is about showing practical solutions in plain English. At the same time, I’m going to assume that if you’re reading these, you’re not exactly a beginner, and you’re not afraid to try something a little more complicated than shooting in Auto mode.
