Hammock Tio Antonio

Composition eBooklette + Post Processing Video

Visiting Hammock Tio Antonio was one of the highlights of my visit to Nicaragua. Being able to witness the community outreach services provided firsthand was wonderful and I wanted to capture the essence of this place in a unique way. Finding a compelling composition was harder than I though because of the limited available light and constant movement of everyone around me. This issue of Photo Methodology walks you through how I worked through the challenges to find that one storytelling photo.

With each issue of Photo Methodology, you are provided with an eBooklette containing my narrative and visualization process of identifying the final composition. You’ll be walked through my thought process of what works and what doesn’t work across a wide range of environments and scenarios. This eBooklette can be read on your computer, tablet, and smartphone.

    Next is the post processing and stylization stage of a photograph’s lifecycle. Within your eBooklette, you will be provided with a unique link to a video screencast that takes you through my editing workflow using a variety of software including Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, ON1 Photo 10, and various mobile editing apps.
