Civil war better now than later!

stretch

I cannot tell you how very excited I am that our Kickstarter campaign has been a success!  We made enough to print our book!  I made a stretch goal in the hopes of printing our little animal storybook, and we made THAT goal as well!  Woohoo!   Everyone seemed to be completely confident we would make it except me, so I cannot TELL you how amazing this whole thing has been.  I am jumping up and down in my head with excitement!

Documenting the Streets: Street Photography Tips from Dominic Stafford

The Daily Post

A street photographer must adapt, improvise, and blend in to any situation — and be ready to find beauty in even the dullest of scenes.

Photographing on the streets is like no other form of photography. It’s real, it’s pure luck, and most importantly it shows life as it is, in real time. A street photographer must adapt, improvise, and blend in to any situation — and be ready to find beauty in even the dullest of scenes.

When I brave the streets of South East Asia, I never really think about anything else other than: “Would that be a good shot? Would that be a good shot? Or would that be a good shot?” I’m in photo mode, and it can become quite tiring. After thirty minutes I’m sitting down, enjoying a soft drink. But even then, I think: “That would be a great shot, and that would…
