Well, I have finally turned in the last document for my new book, The Hidden Power of Blend Modes. That’s quite a milestone, and while there’s work yet to be done, I thought I’d document the process while I still remember some of it.
I love experimenting with photography, but I need to spend more time nailing down the basics. I decided to tackle dark field lighting a few years ago, after having used in my microscopy work.
