On Taking Pictures #83: It’s Not A Pendulum, It’s A Kaleidoscope


This week, we gear out a little (just a little) and talk about light, specifically the subtleties and how much they may or may not affect your end product. Also, we talk about funding projects. Should you pony up the cash, or is crowd-funding a possible solution? Plus, user-suggested Photographer of the Week, portrait shooter Martin Schoeller.
