"It Looks Like Trash!" Use Macro and Find The Fine Art Photos Everyday Scenes

Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace—AdoramaTV

Can you find photographic ambrosia in a nondescript alley or refuse? Mark Wallace turns trash into photographic art! The secret? Visual Pushups!

Join Mark Wallace in this exclusive AdoramaTV episode of Exploring Photography as he explores downtown Phoenix, Ariz. looking for photographic gems. He explains why he calls this practice "Visual Pushups." Follow him as he looks in alleys, at street signs and elsewhere that you wouldn't associate with great photography, and see as he finds bits of color and texture to shoot. The key is to get in close and really isolate the subject, and to slow down and be deliberate; a macro lens is great for doing this.
