Driving into the Andes
Guest post on Scott Bourne's Blog - Black & White HDR Photography
I did a guest post over on PhotoFocus about B&W HDR Photography. There is a quote in there that got tweeted out -- "HDR is about light; it’s not about color." It's true! Anyway, you can go read the guest post on his site.
Review of David duChemin's book, Within the Frame
"Within the Frame" is a great book and I recently gave it a 5-star review on Amazon. Here is what I said about David's work:
David presents all of his thoughts in a wonderful and inspiring way.
I find, personally, that the typical photography book is predictable and obvious. I like thinkers that challenge the status-quo, and David certainly falls in that realm. This book will inspire you because he'll give you new ways to think about stuff you've been thinking about for years. If you are the kind of person that just wants old tired dictums being reinforced, then this isn't the book for you. It's full of new, fresh thought, smart conclusions, and, of course, beautiful photographs.
The world of Photography is changing, and David is one of the great flag bearers of the new age.
I also invite you to visit David's website. He's got his own review of my book there, which was awful nice of him!
Daily Photo - The Long Road to the Andes
There was a series of plane hops and car rides to get down towards the very edge of Argentina. At one point, I felt like I was on this road for a good 5 hours in a very sketchy rental van.
We pulled over to the road to relieve ourselves. I was ill-prepared for how windy this place is. There's just no good way to capture how windy it was, since everything over one foot off the ground had blown away an epoch ago. The only evidence I have is that this was made with a single RAW file since I could not keep the tripod still for multiple exposures! I could not even keep myself upright! Let's not talk about how I had to relieve myself; I can simply say there is only one good direction to aim.
