Extension (Extra Credit) 1

Watch one (or all three) of these videos featuring Joe McNally. Joe is a master photographer who had been shooting editorial work for more than 30 years. Editorial photos are intended to be used with an article or be used in advertising work. He is very creative and a personal inspiration to me.

Many of the skills in these videos are beyond what we will do in class, although we will do some of them. What I want you to take away from these videos is the process that he goes through to create a photo. Not only is he working with the camera and lights, he is working with the actors and participants to make a photo. This kind of photography is a team effort!

After you have watched the video, write a 1 paragraph reflection on what you learned. What was the process that Joe uses to create a photo? How often does he get it done in one shot?
