Photography of the power and poetry of our planet
Bruce Barnbaum of Granite Falls, WA entered photography as a hobbyist in the 1960s. After 40 years, it is still his hobby; it has also been his life’s work since 1970. He has taught workshops since 1972.
Bruce’s educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in mathematics from UCLA in 1965 and 1967. After working for several years as a mathematical analyst and computer programmer for missile guidance systems, he abruptly left the field and turned to photography in late 1970 ….
When you go inside, your eyes don’t register the light change as being particularly impressive. But while the change is not recorded as a large difference by the eyes, the camera sees everything differently. The biggest things to think about when photographing inside are the lower light level and the very different white balances. This article should help you better understand how to deal with light when shooting inside.

John Williams is a freelance commercial photographer who has contributed to a number of award-winning projects in the dozen-plus years he’s been creating beautiful, marketable images. Although a resident of Indiana, he began his career in Arizona and retains an affinity for the desert Southwest, where his fascination with natural light is fed by the harsh but striking landscapes.
“I discovered photography a bit late, despite having contact with images in my work life for several years. Since then, I am just trying to get some time back.
I understand photography as a combination of lights, shapes and lines…play with them, and an image is born.
Black and white is direct, concise, and at the same time, underlines and makes this idea stronger…Concluding, and reaching what really matters to me: It drives away reality, creating a new one.”

Based in Manchester , England , I am a professional photographer with 22 years of experience in the industry. Having started as an assistant at a large catalogue and commercial studio in Manchester , I progressed through the ranks and now have my own studio where I does editorial and commercial/corporate photography to earn the pennies, whilst my passion are the personal projects that take up ALL my spare time.My photographic philosophy. “I am a firm believer in the ethos that great photography comes from the heart. I really believe that it is obvious when a photograph has been made for purely commercial reasons and the most important thing for me is to give a part of my self to each and every photograph I make.
I prefer darkness to light as I find it more intriguing thinking of what I can’t see, or can barely see, than what is obvious and in my face – current digital camera technology is a great boon to me in carrying out this light/dark exploration.
