Default To scalerman: Autodidactic- My new favorite word!


You are hilarious! If you don't mind I'll be using that phrase in the future! I really appreciate your input on my images. I need to look into the Large Photo option for posting. As for training, I spent a week with Galen Rowell in 1986 right after he published the book 'Mountain Light'. Since then, I've read a lot and I learn from the input of people like yourself on Trek Earth and NaturePhotographers.Net. My photography has come a long way since I've joined these forums. I've been studying your portraits trying to understand what it is that makes them so effective. You obviously have a great eye, and an instinct for the decisive moment. How about you? Are you 'autodidactic?' Who do you learn from? Speaking of your amazing Nepal images, I saw a book in a small shop in Kathmandu called 'Himalaya' by Eric Valli. Your images remind me of his work and the work of Steve McCurry. It really is amazing stuff. When is your next trip?


BTW: I didn't use a filter on the new Ama Dablam shot. That was pure himalayan magic.
