Maximize the Light

I just posted the first photo tip video on my blog as part of my free on-line outdoor photography course. This week’s tip, Maximize the Light, encourages photographers to learn the nuance of using natural light in outdoor photos. It seems like a good place to start – photography means “drawing with light” after all. Regular readers to the OP blog probably already understand the importance of using the right light for the subject, but those of you just getting going with your outdoor photography should find this tip helpful. The blog post includes an assignment and a link to share photos, and next week I’ll choose one “student” photo to feature on my blog and receive a copy of my book, The AMC Guide to Outdoor Digital Photography. Take a look and let me know how you like it.
