Last January I began an intensive 6-month long journey into the finer elements of photography with two Masters, Les Imgrund and Ron Clifford, in The Arcanum. It was a unique and wonderful experience as an apprentice, that taught me not only how to think about setting up to take the photo, but how to make it even better with post-processing edits. In particular, one of my goals for learning with my Arcanum Masters was to produce dramatic landscapes that deserved more than a just a glance, that would hopefully get viewers to say “wow”. Composition, balance, tension, color, drama, symmetry — they are all part of creating great landscapes, but both of my Master Photographers emphasized, in particular, simply asking what is essential in the photo to tell the story.
So here are 10 of the best of 2015 — if you feel so inclined, vote for the one(s) that do/does the best job of provoking your interest, maybe even getting a “wow”. You can vote for as many as you like.
Vote for as many of these as you wish. Thanks for your input!
