The author is a graphic designer and fell in love with camera when he took the camera in his hands for the first time. He was very obsessive about photography and the thoughts of photography were just over his head. He pursued professional photography for four years and studied in a film school called Royal College of Art in London. He feels proud to be the owner of the Box Brownie camera that he had borrowed it from his father, which was his first camera. He shares the memories of the smart photography he did with Mick Jagger Double Exposure shot with 4×5 Horseman. He remembers how dangerous the shoot was with leopard, which could have cost him his life. However, his passion for the wild life photograph made him take the risk. This was done at the time, when photo shop did not exist (McHaney, 2014).
He completely believes in the play of light and the effect the soft light can make on photographs. He mentions the case of Christy, where he used 4×5 Horseman for taking a snap. He expresses his sad feeling for how today’s photography is not focusing much on lighting. He says that he rarely saw a well lit photograph. He says that the younger photographers use soft box and resent on easier techniques of photography instead of realistic ones. A considerable measure of time individuals do not understand that it is the separation the light from the subject, which is essential, and afterward you can get tumble off. Essentially, on the off chance that you remain alongside a light and the light is 4″ far from your face. The light is exceptionally contrast and tumbles off rapidly. The photographer is not very commercial but surely depends on his talent. He was completely focused on portraiture and did not want to take just a beauty snap, but surely portray Christy Turlington essential beauty in true terms. He also explains how difficult it was to photograph the singer named as Chuk berry. He gives the example of case of Steve Jobs where he was commissioned some other style of photography, but he went forward and explained his own idea, which was accepted very easily (Brownlow, 1968).
