The ThinkOutside Landscape Photography Forums

A little place for big ideas! These forums are by and for the landscape photography community worldwide.
They exist because of frequent expressions of a need for them to exist. Here they are.
Introduced on May 2, 2017. Enjoy!

[Sticky] About the Masters Forum - Table of Contents

This is a forum where photographers who are also educators share a photo and a sentence (or more) with educational value. This is an invite-only forum for now, and we all hope that these contributions are educational, interesting, and inspiring to the entire landscape photography community.

How it works:

Each "Master" will share a photo and a sentence (at least) that gives a glimpse into what went into realizing the photo. The text may be about any aspect of what it takes to produce a photo worthy of a place in that photographer's portfolio. Some important notes:

• Anyone is welcome to comment on these posts and to ask questions about the photos.

• Anyone is welcome to ANSWER questions about these photos. Some questions are probably answerable by a lot of advanced photographers. If you have an answer, please feel free to offer it.

• The photographers sharing here travel a lot for their photography and may not have the time or data signals to reply to answers personally.

• Subscribing to the Masters Forum is the best way to ensure that you know about new entries here.

 

 Special thanks to Matt Anderson for the brainstorming conversation that led to this idea.

So great to have you contributing, Mark! I look forward to seeing your first post in the Masters Forum. And I have to say that it's extra cool to see that you chose your old-school profile photo, which I think I remember from the early days of NPN/FredMiranda.
