One From the Cutting Room Floor

Curtains of virga and clouds over Canyonlands National Park, Utah.

The final edits for my new book, “Expressive Nature Photography” are finished, and this ‘baby’ didn’t make it! Hard to accept, as we all love our children, right?! But you just can’t fit all your ‘babies’ into one book, ever. This was from a short section on black and white nature photography, and it’s worthy, there were just too many to select from. I guess that’s a good thing, to have more good pics than not enough, eh?!

In the movies, in film days, the reels were cut/spliced to remove unwanted bits and segments. The phrase ‘cutting room floor’ referred to all the little bits of film that were left there after the production people got finished! Actors and actresses alike had to accept that some of what they thought were their best moments might get cut. Essentially the same thing happened – some of my faves just didn’t work into the final flow of ideas/pictures. Sigh, but then maybe they’ll be right for the next book!!

Now I can get on to other projects; I’ll be hitting the road to Arizona this weekend, for some Spring photography, and teaching for MISA at Tanque Verde.

Note: This new book is being published by Monacelli Press and will be released in August 2017, and available through your favorite bookstore(s). 

All best, and thanks for visiting,
