The How To See series is something that's been frequently requested in the past: the ability to look over my shoulder and trying to understand what I notice and how I compose when I'm in a given situation. You can see the ambient surroundings to get a sense of context, plus what's outside the frame to understand the compositional choices I had at the time. In addition, I talk about the structure and composition of each final image shown, what attracted me, what the the artistic, compositional and postprocessing considerations were, and what my thoughts were at the time of capture. It is a vicarious exploration through a city; a travel guide of sorts for photographers, and a personal masterclass in learning to see the unusual in the ordinary.
Episode Five is from Havana, Cuba. Paypal won't let us take payment for anything that's Cuba-related, so we've decided to give it away instead for all of you to enjoy. If you did, there are four more episodes from four more cities available for a limited time only as a special bundle from the Teaching Store: mingtheinstore.outthink.us/home/24-how-to-see-ep1-4-special-christmas-bundle.html
