Re: A couple of examples from some experienced/talented photographers

Finally got some time to view those videos.  Thanks so much for the links.  The first video is pretty much just common sense, IMO, though I would have taken a snap of the landscape lighting he told his students not to waste time on (it wouldn't have taken long to get a snapshot!).  I enjoyed the video very much just the same.

The second video really opens your eyes to possibilities and different ways of thinking (for me, at least).  I want to follow his work more closely after watching his terrific presentation.

Thanks again!  Worthwhile contributions, for sure.
