Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Joseph Roybal on ‘Off the Beaten Path: Thoughts on Exploring Our World and Our Responsibility Behind the Lens’
Through my time spent in the field chasing light and looking for dramatic vistas and images that tell a story I have found today more so than ever before being a critical moment to finding your own vision and voice. In a world of social media, the internet, photography sharing website, etc we are inundated with visual stimulation that rarely has much thought behind it as to the damage sharing can bring to the natural environment and landscape.
To me, photography is all about getting off the beaten path finding your own icons both literally and figuratively. Pushing our own boundaries and searching for that next great photograph and icon is what this chase is all about and what we all love, it’s finding how to balance our pursuits responsibly being the key.
In this talk we will explore some of these ideas and bring about a discussion on them. We will also learn how I scout locations virtually and set up compositions before I ever even arrive at a spot as well as basic TOPO map understanding to help us all Get Off the Beaten Path a little safer and with ease.
