Article: The Photographic Eye

humpbackThis is the second instalment (PDF 945kB) of The Photographic Eye column that I write for Wetpixel Quarterly magazine.

The discussion in this issue revolves around one of my favourite images, a humpback whale slicing the water in one powerful, graceful motion with its pectoral fin.

The column is meant not so much as a discussion of technique, but more about the thought process, preparation and similar considerations involved in creating a specific image.

Of course, the feature looks better in print than as a PDF file, so check out Wetpixel Quarterly to get a hard copy and see the other great content in this issue.
