Take it away, Jackie.
Above: Get down on the ground - All the photos in my UNDERSTORY project, currently on view at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History Naturalist Center www.easternunderstory.com, were taken in the belly-to-ground position.
Above: Shoot with One Lens - Your back will love you. It took ten-mile hikes every day for over a week with a 28-300mm lens to finally find this flawless pair of camera ready rare slippers. Endurance matters.
Above: Go Natural - Watch the light travel over and around the subject. Watching it hug, shun or barely touch living things otherwise untouched is mesmerizing. When it's just right, take a deep breath steady the camera and confidently press the shutter release. Revere the light.
All of the above: Enjoy the process of making pictures.
