The phrase “making a photograph” is one that you’ll often hear as your journey with photography continues. It’s odd the first time we hear it. “Making?”. All our lives up until that point, we’ve been told that we “take” photos, not make them. There is a big difference between taking a photo and making a photo, though.
In this video, photographer Espen Helland talks us through how he made this photo of a stag in Scotland’s Cairngorms. Espen takes us on a journey from the very beginning stages of his idea, right through to the day it was shot – to very dramatic effect. This isn’t so much a tutorial on how to make a photo so much as explaining the intent behind making a photo.
