Behind the Scenes

I have good news: You are the Luke Skywalker of photography. I also have bad news though: You are the haven’t-left-Tatooine-yet, moisture-farmer Luke Skywalker of photography. But, I have more good news: I am here to be your Obi-Wan Kenobi and teach you the ways of the Force, er … photography. (Note: I’m not Yoda. That’s Ansel Adams and, spoiler alert, he’s dead.) So, if you have a burning desire to defeat Lord Vader, let me teach you how to harness the power of the Force and defeat the Empire ... or, at the very least, take better pictures.
