People often comment on my photography and say that my shots are landscapes with people in them...and that's pretty true. Why? Because I started off shooting landscapes and learned the art of exposing for the elements and not the subject of the image. That's why my skies are so crisp, and everything is in proper exposure. It's not HDR.
This outstanding image taken by my workshop attendee Devon McManama exemplifies exactly what I teach at my workshops...making your shots dynamic the natural way, not through Photoshop tricks. This was at my Miami Workshop while we were out in the Everglades playing with the gators. Thanks Devon for such a great image!
