Sometime in January I headed out of town to location scout for some great spots for some Abu Dhabi desert shoots – what happened instead was that I ended up filming some behind the scenes for my latest break out, and they ended up being some of my favourite photos!!! I had my camera, but really I was quite wholly unprepared for capturing video of me shooting and preparing, and anticipating moments – which was kind of the whole point of the thing since the break out is called “The Moment Before” Anyway, for those of you who haven’t bought the Break Out, or “Photography on the Fly” (which contains more wonderful behind the scenes from a desert shoot with a family and how I conduct desert shoots) here are some of my favourite moments.
In the videos that accompany the break out I talk through how I anticipated the moments and waited until I saw what I loved. I explain how I give small directions to nudge subjects (my kids in this case!) in the direction I want to capture the pretty light too.
If you want to find out more about learning Photography with me, here in Abu Dhabi or elsewhere, follow this link or click on the “For Photographers” in the drop down Details Menu. I take on several students a year for private mentoring both in persona and via skype as well as the Break Outs being available for purchase, and i have big news about learning from me here in the UAE coming some time soon too 😀
