• Great write up Dan – I did a mountain bike capture a few weeks ago – I think I shared it with you on FB – anyways the gorilla pod is definitely the best thing to have when it comes to a quick trip out by yourself it’s so light and easy to carry.

    I also failed to douse myself in deet as well and ended up attracting swarms of those little blood drinkers. Just one of the great things that comes with being an outdoor photographer I guess.

    Anyways keep the awesome stuff coming! 🙂

  • Excellent post Dan! One of these days I am really going to have to get a speedlight and start trying out some of these great techniques you write about. I have the lensbaby muse, but I have pretty much given up hope on it. I cannot get anything at all in focus. Now I wish I bought the composer instead since it will hold its focus. I love the end result in your experiment here!

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
