Happy Monday everyone. I’m writing from a hotel in Chicago, not far from the airport, finishing up the long travel from Mammoth, CA rounding out the “You Can Do It Too” workshop with Moose Peterson. It was a wonderful time, got some cool shooting done, and recharged the visual batteries.
Terry White and Scott Kelby on location shooting
As I was shooting over the weekend, I immediately thought of a couple of blog posts from Scott Kelby and Terry White that I thought really needed a honorable mention. Scott posted not too long ago a post that talked about the process of shooting Indy races here in Florida. Whether you were interested in Indy racing or not, the post talked about the process of shooting a live event, warts and all. It was candid, informative, and full of behind the scenes knowledge that is sometimes necessary when shooting events.
Terry White just got back from a shoot in AZ, and he also did a big blog post talking about all of the positives and negatives (including some great photography) about his experience. For anyone going to shoot Slots, Monument Valley, or if you are thinking on going on a Photo Expedition, this is a must read to give you some extra things to think about before you head out.
