Fall to Winter in Red

Whether it's a small child taking pictures, someone with a point and click camera or a professional photographer, one of the things that catches our interest in any given photograph is the focus on a detail that we otherwise might not have stopped to notice.

It's fascinating how we often make assumptions on what's outside of the frame based on what we're given inside the frame - especially considering that we normally see so little of the actual environment in a photograph being unable to look around 360 degrees.

Strangers (and New Friends) in Sayulita, Mexico

Just recently we were in Sayulita, Mexico and wandered around with a simple and mobile two-light setup asking random strangers if we could photograph them. Amazingly, every single person (or group of people) responded invariably with, "sure! What would you like me to do?"

Cristy said that would never work in Toronto, which we put to the test in last week's episode towards the end of Movember. Predictably, people here in Canada answered our fun hook about a photo/video moustache project skeptically with, "what's this for?"
