Link to an excellent post…

Today I wanted to share an essay that I read yesterday, titled Believing is Seeing: Being Taken by Pictures.

Everyday I try to find time to read several (OK, more than several) blogs on photography and Photoshop. One of these blogs is Scott Kelby's Adobe Photoshop Insider (this link is to Scott's blog and will open on the current post, not the post I want to share with you). Scott is the a president of the National Association for Photoshop Professionals and his blog is often very informative. Yesterday he instituted a new feature of hosting "guest bloggers" every Wednesday, and yesterday's post was well worth reading. It was written by photographer Vincent Versace (photographer, author and teacher — visit his web site for more about who he is) who writes about how he answers the question "How do I take better pictures?"

This being my photo blog, I am including one photo, which will be familiar to anyone who lives on Long Island — or has traveled by air over the island. I'll write about how I achieved the appearance of the photo in my next post.
