Sometimes you get lucky and get a great shot right on your first trip out to a new spot. Other times you have to work at it – sometimes a great deal. Stephen has been working on capturing San Diego in natural and urban landscapes since he moved here a few years ago. In his talk, he will take you through the process of how he made some of his favorite images: from initial conception to scouting, planning, shooting, and of course – re-shooting. He will also briefly touch upon his post-processing techniques.
