My father was indirectly responsible for my introduction to non-traditional photo techniques around 35 years ago. When I told him of my intentions to become a professional photographer, he convinced me that one practical option would be to earn a certificate in medical photography. However, taking pictures of impaled eyes, severed heads and bloody surgical procedures was of less interest to me than shooting with infrared film.

We humans looooove color! All you have to do is walk down the aisle of your local supermarket, and you can see how important color is to us humans. We’re pretty color-conscious—even if we’re not consciously thinking about it. If you’re into “visually communicating,” an eloquent way of saying “taking photographs,” then you need to be tuned into colors. And just for the record, black and white are colors. You shoot in color—but do you think in color? Do you consciously use it, manipulate it, and make it an important element in your photo, like that little thing called light?
I still remember some of the images that made me want to learn photography. Many of them involved long exposures. They were often taken at dawn or dusk. Those hours typically offer softer and more colorful light than we see when the sun is up. Long exposures during those hours blur unnecessary details in a way that yields a simpler and, to me, more satisfying image.
