Anatomy of a Photo


I’ve created an extensive series of posts, where I post a photo (not necessarily everyday, but several times a week) and explain the process by which the photo was created. It is a sort of tutorial, a teaching by example. Some of the images will be some of my favorites, but some will be my failures, as they can be a good lesson of what not to do, or of how to improve.

The pictures will range all over the map- portraits, wildlife, landscape, macro, underwater, and more. I hope you enjoy them.

These posts are designed to show the process of taking pictures, to break down the steps and thought behind them. They do not show the anatomy of the animals and people in the photographs. If you want anatomical photos, you will have to go elsewhere.

    Lol! “If you want anatomical photos, you will have to go elsewhere.” You made me giggle!

    • You would be amazed at how many people arrive at this site, while searching for something like “anatomy of a cauliflower.” The search terms I see in my stats can really make me laugh sometimes, and often it is because of the anatomy that someone is looking for. I’m glad I made you giggle too.
