Re: “Attention Portrait Photographers: Stop tearing the place up

Good! Unfortunately, this needs to be done in more places than not. Much of Colorado is a photographer's dream come true and you can see it everywhere. Garden of the Gods is probably where I have seen it most over my past 6 years of living here. It is very difficult to enjoy the rock formations there.

Re: “Why photography is like music

I see music and photography as one and the same...which is why every song off my latest album (Dead Light, Alien Guitar Abduction) was first published as a music video.

Re: “Godless creator Scott Frank offers good advice for artists

Re Strange Empire - When was it written though? Because Scott Frank wrote GODLESS back around 2002. His work was a result of careful and detailed research.

Re: “Godless creator Scott Frank offers good advice for artists

I wonder if many viewers of Godless are aware of the series Strange Empire, which ran on the Canadian CBC network from 2014-2015 (13 episodes). That critically-acclaimed Western series featured female leads in a town essentially without men. The women suffer the death of their husbands at the start of the show and are left to band together and face men who seek to control or hurt them. While there is often overlap in Western productions, it seems a similar premise to this new series, does it not? (You can also find Strange Empire on Netflix.)

Re: “The challenge of dance photography

Hi Terry, Thanks for your note! I agree. It's extreme to make that many images, but keep in mind this is a performance of 10 studios in an hour... each studio gets a couple of different performances and I wanted to make sure I have images that work for everyone... under different circumstances I wouldn't take nearly as many. Thanks for your comment Terry!

Re: “The challenge of dance photography

I shot for the Colorado Ballet for over 20 years and the DenverCenter for Performing Arts for 20+ years and the Chicago City Ballet before that. 3000 shots (almost 1 per second) in an hour hour is pretty extreme. I would average about 550 shots per performance. I do agree with you that dance is like a fast moving sporting event with constantly changing light. I found the secret to capturing the best shots is listening to the music.

Re: “The challenge of dance photography

I've been shooting dance for several companies for many years. Since I'm shooting dress rehearsals, I have the luxury of being able to stand anywhere. But like you, have to deal with stage lighting and movement. I use a Sony a7R2 for its high ISO abilities, letting it float between 100-6400. I do use a shallow depth of field of between f2.0 and f3.2 and 1/200s. I almost always use a 28mm lens, unless I'm shooting solos, in which case I might switch to a 35mm or 55mm. But always prime. And finally, to deal with the hot overhead lights, I turn the EV down by 2/3 to 1 1/3 stops to make sure I don't blow out the highlights. Because the sensor of the a7R2 is ISO Invariant, I can pull a lot of detail out of the shadows. Congratulations on having the opportunity to shoot the CSDT!

Re: “Photography and creative problem solving

Thank you for this article. Even though you did not get the results you expected, you "made lemonade," out of the situation.

We are our own worst critics, and too often that critical voice will discourage me from even trying things. Instead, your article has reminded me that we need to get out there with our cameras, in spite of ANY reason or excuse not to. Simply because a good photo doesn't have to be planned. It just happens.

Again, many thanks!
