The latest issue of CLARITY: Photography Beyond The Camera is out on virtual stands and ready for download.
In addition, CLARITY, Vol 6 features an article written by me called The Secret Ingredient Behind Luck, in which I discuss how to apply the concept of anticipation to shooting action and adventure.
In our fast moving world, moments often pass by before you can even register that they actually happened. when the dirt is flying and your adrenaline is spiking, there’s barely enough time to raise your camera, let alone, pull off a successful shot.
If there was only a way to improve your luck, or better yet, see into the future…
The eight-page article features a number of photos and tips that will help you increase your percentage for success when shooting things that move quickly. Check it out.
I’m excited to be featured in CLARITY again, I had the cover photo on the last issue, Volume 5. That issue featured an article about cold weather photography so if you missed it, you might want to give that issue a look too, since winter is just around the corner here in the Northern Hemisphere.
If you haven’t seen CLARITY before, it’s a very well done PDF magazine geared around the lifestyle of photography. Rather than focus on gear, CLARITY features in-depth topics that surround things like light, composition and technique.
With regular contributors like Kevin Kubota, Piet Van den Eynde, Sean McCormack, Chris Corradino and Ian Plant, the journal contains some really articles, fantastic imagery and even video. The current issue features 37-minutes of video content, and 70 beautifully designed eBook spreads.
And, as I’ve said before what I love most about Clarity: Beyond the Camera, is that it’s published by a super nice guy named Dave, who apparently just sent his little girl off to First Grade this fall. Dave pours his heart and soul into CLARITY and shares his passion for photography in such a way to enrich the lives of other shooters. In my book, that kind of thing is worth our support.
I think that Dave does an excellent job with the magazine, so be sure and check out the latest issue– it only costs a few bucks- about the same as a coffee and a pastry. Good inspiration is worth that.
