True Spirit of the horse captured in Stromberg's photography  
Monday, October 15, 2007 | by Mike Sturk
Two features in particular caught our eye in the October 2007 Rangefinder and both make great use of light and colour.
  • Tony Stromberg's remarkable photographs of horses are featured in True Spirit. Stromberg prefers early morning and late day light as well as backlighting and some underexposure for a more dramatic effect. These days he's shooting "about 99% digital" and used the Nikon D2H and D200 cameras with an AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED for most of the photography featured in the story. He uses an AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 200-400mm f/4G IF-ED lens at times as well. More of his work on equine photography, including his book Spirit Horses, can be found on this site.

  • Also in Rangefinder is Jay Maisel: Warning! Paradigm Shift Ahead! Maisel's photography is featured throughout a story in which he urges photographers to make a paradigm shift by avoiding a tendency to become bogged down by technology and sitting in front of computers and instead spend more time seeing. He offers many examples of this shift, which include photographers having more fun with their photography again and spending more time out with their cameras. Maisel offers four pieces of solid advice: persevere because perseverance will win over talent alone; photograph subjects of interest; be ethical; and, don't give up.
A table of contents page lists all the articles in the October 2007 issue that available for viewing as PDFs.
