A great landscape photo is the sum of many parts. Vision, planning, execution, post processing. Each plays their role in creating a compelling landscape photo. Making The Shot videos take you through the entire photographic process. I share with you my entire process from envisioning a photo, planning the shoot and sorting out logistics, on location thoughts about composition and camera settings, and the final in-studio post processing work.

Join me on a photo trip through the Marin Headlands north of San Francisco, California. Forests, rolling hills, and beautiful overlooks of the Pacific. This shoot was a challenging one! I share what worked, what didn't and key takeaways I learned from the experience. Despite the challenges, I came away with several good photos and I share the post processing of my favorite.
