June 20, 2013  Author:  

I have long shot macro mostly with side- or front-light, although using a macro twin flash gives me the flexibility to shoot in most any direction. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered shooting directly into the sun can create some very cool effects – under the right circumstances. I came upon a butterfly […]

If  week 1 of Summer Intensive 2013 was enough to teach students why we call the course “Intensive,” week 2 only reinforced that lesson.

Last Friday I introduced you to 2013 CT assistant Carol Marshall on the blog. And I must admit I made a mistake. In the opening sentence to Carol’s intro, I wrote, “Last but not least in our ongoing series of introductions of our 2013…”   Well Carol is not the last assistant to be introduced. […]
