I’m now working on special projects and teaching workshops.
I’m finally learning how to use Lightroom CC and Classic and the Apple Ipencil with IPadpro.
Of course i managed to screw things up an slowly correcting and finding images.
So all advice tips welcomed !
Thank you

For a sense of Angel Franco's work at the New York Times, see here: Seeing America Through Ángel Franco’s Eyes

Now I'm wondering how many other great photos I've seen in the Times over the years were taken by him.

Paul, Phil
I'm learning everyday.
I wake up like I'm a 12 year old ready to explore and learn.
I've been very lucky to live my dream and continue to work without having to meet deadlines.
My website which will be updated soon is angelfrancophotography.com it's all black and white work that I did after my working day.
If I can be of any help please ask.
Thank you

How do you see the extraordinary in the ordinary? I just looked at the NYT article posted above and I saw: A Wyoming call train, a tornado damaged house in Kansas, a stockyard in Minnesota. I pass by things like this daily and if I decide to take a photo, my photos come out "ordinary". These tell a story.

Thank you Cleese’s, Nothing is ordinary you me even the grass we all breathe. I try to feel the event and the light.
I don’t know if my answer helps.
I ask my students to inhale and exhale images. Stop and study the landscape

Clee,

I often feel the same way when I am reading the Times, just looking at various photos in that day's paper. How is it, I ask myself, is that the photos in the Times seem compelling, and mine, not so much? Rhetorical question, of course. People like Angel are true artists as well as photojournalists, in a way that I am not.

As I have mentioned several times here, I am a railroad hobbyist and so I take lots (and lots and lots) of train photos. But mine are nowhere as good as these: https://www.liveseyimages.com/
