  1. Robert, CreativePath Podcast #3 Ask Me Anthing is again an excellent Podcast!
    Thank you for outlining the 5 basic principles in Landscape Photography! You are an excellent speaker and articulate extremely well your guiding principles.

    As a person who’s been involved in Photography as a kid developing and printing my own negatives since the 50’s and up to 4×5 within the past few years or so as well as embracing the digital realm of Photography, I can very well relate to your outstanding principles!

    Thank you, Robert!
