One of the great pleasures in my life is watching how, slowly, I seem to be developing as a photographer in my private life and my work. Its a passion and satisfaction that I want everyone to discover they're capable of cultivating--an 'if I can, you can' sort of deal.
This past November, I spent a week roadtripping in Montana; crisscrossing the countryside in search of subjects to shoot for a two-part column on low-rent travel photography tricks that everyone, no matter their skill level or budget, can employ. Happily, Montana turned out to be one of the most gorgeous North American locales I've had the pleasure of visiting. Every time I turned around there was something I felt worth hauling out my camera to capture.
In the first part of this two-part special, I talk about what hardware and software I bring with me on the road to shoot and edit the photos I take. I don't sell this stuff as being what everyone should use--I just talk about what works for me. If you've got a desire to up your photographic game or just want to see what goes into producing the that I do, be sure to check in with Macworld.
