His work has been featured in several galleries including the Nikon House in New York and the Natural History Museum in London.
In this interview, we discuss how Dan started photographing, as well as how to photograph polar bears and how to pull still images from a video.
When I first saw HDR (high dynamic range) photos, I was amazed.
But when I figured out how to create them, I was less enthusiastic. It was a bit too complicated to do all the time.
Gary Crabbe, a California-based landscape photographer, showed me the solution to this a few weeks ago when I chatted with him at an event.
Gary explained to me that the dynamic range on a lot of the DSLRs like the Nikon D800 or the D810 were so good as to allow you to simply move 2 sliders in Lightroom to create almost HDR-like images.
They’re not quite the same quality and you do have to up the contrast to compensate a bit, but it’s a quick and easy way to shoot things like sunsets, which are always tough because the brighter sky gets blown out to a white color losing that gorgeous sunset glow and then the foreground turns into a dark mess.
We discuss how your character can show through your photography, how to get subjects comfortable with you photographing them, and how building relationships now can lead to amazing opportunities later.

Wide angle lenses can be really fun, and this episode is about what I gleamed from spending a morning shooting at fixed settings using a wide angle lens. You can view the images I took here: http://louisehendon.com/photography/anderson-lake-ca/
