Pardon me while I brag a bit but my fork is featured in this month's issue of View Camera magazine. It outlines my evolution as a photographer and the influences I experienced. A number of my large format images are also featured.

Creating a Photograph
If you have ever attended one of my lectures you know how "pre-visualization" plays a significant role in creating (rather than just taking) a photograph. Ansel Adams always stressed this concept.
We can all pre-visualize the picture we want to take but often fail in it's execution due to our lack of mastering the craft of photography. Pre-visualization is easy, mastering your craft takes time, knowledge and practice!
In this video tutorial I will take you from my concept for the final image (pre-visualization) through the various steps to create that image. We will start with image capture in the camera and end with optimizing the image file in Photoshop.
While I have extensive studio equipment I purposely used the bare minimum of equipment and shot on my kitchen table. I wanted to show you that creativity does not require elaborate equipment. It only requires equipment that you already have (mainly your camera's flash and some mat boards) and the basic knowledge on how to use them.
I hope that you enjoy this tutorial and find it valuable in your evolution as a creative photographer. Also, don't forget to checkout my workshop activities to help you advance your craft.

To your success,
I receive frequent requests for recommendations on photographic accessories for lighting, speedlights, macro, etc.
So, I have put together an Amazon store listing my recommended products. These are products that I own and use.
Hope this helps.
