On Making Pictures

Howdy pardners!

After my Fossil Rim workshop, we spent about 20 minutes making pictures - about 5 minutes from the Ft. Worth Stockyards. We met this Native American on the busy main street at the Stockyards. The background there was bad. So, we found a cool, nearby location and made pictures like this one - which is actually one of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Always remember: there is a big difference between taking a picture and making a picture.

I made this picture with my Canon 5D Mark II and 28-105mm lens. (Opps! I posted this early saying that I took the shot with my 7D. Sorry. I always carry two cameras, and forgot which one I used to take this photo. Thanks for a reader for helping me to remember.)

Explore the light,
P.S. That's Kevin Browning on the horse. He heads up War Pony Productions. He is available for shoots - photo shoots! He's a great guy and professional who will help you get great shots!

Nice pic, Rick. I got a very similar one. Thanks for helping us "make" pictures!

Nice shot Rick, I you mentioned "Make" as opposed to "Take" I am always telling folks that when they have a camera in their hand they should be Making pictures not taking them." I get some strange looks but it is so true. Glad to know I am not the only one to make the distinction.
