Every time I prepare a photo tour that centers on landscape photography, there are questions on what photo equipment to bring. The most common theme regarding lenses is: the wider the better.

Chris does some speculating on the future of photography, especially in light of the next big wave of computing: Augmented and Mixed Reality – this will impact photography on many different levels. There will be new technical possibilities (think 3D sensing), there will be new ways to present photography (virtual displays), new ways of teaching (virtual classes, tours, workshops), and even new creative tools – either that or Chris is completely out of his mind.

Chris will also look into why over- and underexposure are absolutely fine and sometimes even necessary in some of his photography and illustrates his thoughts with several photos, including group shots from previous photo tours and workshops and a couple of example of his street photography from New York. Certain types of photos can really benefit from over- or underexposure.
Street photography is also what today’s guest is known for.
