Getting the shot is important. The art of photography is a left/right brain exercise. A strong technical intellect and understanding of your equipment allows fluid creativity. Howard has been studying photography since he was a boy. Passed down from his Grandfather through his father, Howard had his own darkroom as a lad. Starting with black and white contact prints he learned the joy of watching an image emerge in a developing tray. These days most work is digital and the magic happens in Photoshop. Regardless of the technology, good pictures start six inches BEHIND the viewfinder.
