Always be looking.
Leaving the opening of my friend Julie Kosser's senior show last week on the north side, the sharp brilliance of sunset strafed across the buildings in the alley. The chiaroscuro of the scene just begged for a photo. Always carrying a camera, I happily obliged.
Other than a good set of eyes, a handy camera, and accurate metering there is nothing special about the technique of this image. It is, as they say, f-8 and be there. Being there, present, aware and ready to go is the key to success.
Always be looking and always ready.
