Episode #2: The illusion of simplicity

In artistic work, simplicity does not equate simplistic.  In this episode, David Quiring discusses the unseen effort that goes into masterfully creating art that is deceptively simple.

Additional resources: As alluded to in the podcast, here is a portrait that host David Quiring made many years ago followed by a behind the scenes view of what went in to creating it.  These resources are remnants of David’s active participation in the Flickr community, created and distributed to help educate fellow photographers on external lighting.
