Sizzle

Sometimes the simplest approach can be the most profound. I was reminded of this in the kitchen with Chef Frank Costantino making pasta for a story called “One Simple Thing”. In the right hands, fresh ingredients, a few simple steps and “the possibilities are endless”. I think the same holds true in Photography, sometimes the simplest touch in lighting or a visual concept can make all the difference.

A+




  I spent an afternoon hiking and exploring the trails at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center last week with a group of young photography students, The Girl Scouts.  I’m familiar with their good works and of course, the annual cookie fundraiser, but our time together was a step towards earning a new badge!  It was a day of story telling and creative problem solving, and how to see things in a different way, behind the camera.  We had a wonderful fall setting, with many natural elements, and great level of enthusiasm.  Great to see the scouts trying out different, daring perspectives and camera angles!
