Cameras and Photography Explained

Teaching point: My first article this week is about making an image look three dimensional. My take: it’s not the lens that does this, it’s how you use the lens. Moreover, photographers tend to be taught to isolate, and isolating details tends to flatten subjects. That’s one reason why I spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to take photos of animals in their environment. 

The best way to see everything I'm writing these days is to use this page you’re currently looking at as your entry point to my sites.
