ADVANCED SHOOTERS

Here are a bunch of articles for advanced shooters. What’s an ‘advanced shooter?’  Well, it’s anyone who has mastered the controls of his/her camera and no longer has to think about them when photographing. It’s a photographer who is starting to really ‘see’ the light everywhere he/she goes, thinking about its photographic possibilities. It’s anyone for whom photography is becoming a life’s passion…in other words, if you’re reading this, it’s probably you!
