In today’s interview, we dive into the process of pulling his writing together and expand on the repository of inspiring tools described in “Secrets to Creating Amazing Photos”. We discuss his work with the families of Ansel Adam and Edward Weston, his video interviews through marcsilber.tv and his extensive experience behind and in front of the camera.

Steelyard is a scale – You have a balance between an object on one side (which is larger), balanced with an object on the other side (which is smaller) and what it does is it creates a sense of balance in your composition.
