This print began life as an exercise at a workshop in Crested Butte, Colorado. The workshop leader, Nat Coalson, had all of us find a comfortable spot in which we could lie down with our eyes closed after wandering around the grove not shooting for ten minutes. He then asked us to “work” the scene with our cameras, exploiting our relaxed mood. Skeptical at first, I am now a disciple of spending time just “looking” when I first discover a new location. When you think about it, the goal is to capture the very best of an opportunity, right? This technique provides a bonus of enjoying the moment to the max.
