I just returned from a week of shooting and sharing in the Palouse region of SE Washington state. The area is famous for its iconic shots of rolling farmlands and rustic barns. As I prepare the 3,000+ images for insertion into my master Lightroom catalog, I will be posting up a Flickr gallery. Till then, here is an initial shot to whet the anticipation.
Watching 17 different photographers work was probably as interesting as any part of the trip. The group varied from the Point-n-shoot carrier to people with $ 40K in very long glass in their grasp. Mac and PC users broke bread together. Adobe and Corel users sat side-by-side. Hand-holders and tripod users photographed the same subjects with unique and amazing results.
It really drives home the point that it is the photographer-not the gear that makes the picture. If it weren’t, we could have sent one person and shared their images.
