Today marks my fifth appearance on Flak Photo. The above image is part of the 20 WINTER PICTURES feature running on Flak through Jan. 15th. I highly recommend checking out the other images in the series that have already run. It’s a very strong group of pictures. I took this picture on assignment for Outside Magazine. I have talked about this before…how when I set up a portrait, I always try to compose a picture that would look good with or without a person in it. The person is just another element or shape within the frame, and everything in the photograph needs to have a reason for being there. So, that’s pretty much what’s happening in this picture. I stuck a guy right smack in the middle of that road. Of course, I made sure to save a sheet of film for a shot sans guy. I ain’t no dummy.
