Photographer's Narrative


I always try to get special shots. In this Humvee loading into a C-17 photo, I set my exposure to a slower shutter speed to give the illusion of motion and crossed my fingers. After taking the photo I looked at the screen and smiled. As photographers we sometimes get to make photos that make the viewer see the world how we want them to see it.
