Episode 294

Please make sure you vote this week if you are in the US. Election time is an important time. 

Everything is connected. When you photograph a leaf, it is part of a tree. A leading line doesn’t just start and stop in your frame. It extends beyond the frame. In this week’s podcast, we look at how our approach to seeing the whole and its parts can impact how we view the world and the images we make. Small shifts in our awareness of how everything is related in an image and how those relationships extend beyond the frame can help you make more meaningful work. 

As always, hope you and yours are safe, and please remember to keep safe and wear your mask
