What Makes A Great Picture by Ira Block

Synopsis

To make a great photo you don't point and shot, you think and shoot. Ira Block takes us through a step-by-step process he’s used in his thirty three years of covering assignments around the world for National Geographic. See how he uses his cameras & lenses and how he gets to just the right place at just the right time to capture the decisive moment. Block describes how to use wide angles to create a feeling of environment and intimacy, a macro lens for tight portraits, high ISO for sharp photos in available light and more.
