    Hi Dan, nice post you have put together here. I certainly agree with your approach to pushing the exposure. Creating dynamic images that stand out from the crowd is so important nowadays.

    It is easy to worry too much about the technical side, and whilst this is important of course there is nothing wrong with pushing the limits occasionally. Personally I really like to see deep, rich blacks, particularly in monochrome work.

    Thanks for sharing your insights and knowledge.

  • […] You don’t always have to go by the histogram, though. In fact, you should only use if for reference, not as a rule. Your histogram doesn’t know what kind of image your trying to create, it only knows what tones are present in your exposure. So what if you lose your shadows. They’re meant to be black. Sometimes you can even blow your highlights and still have a great looking shot, like the example below. […]

    Ha! No, that’s my friend Jim Kohl. I’ll tell him that you think he looks like Eddie. 😀

    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.
