Continue your exploration of adventure photography by looking deeper at ways to create dynamic results. Look closely at compelling shots from Mr. Richards’s portfolio as he illuminates techniques for drawing viewers closer, creating a studio-lit effect in the field, finding the unexpected, focusing on details, and taking a picture of “people” —without the people.

Great photos and insights into overcoming the challenges in capturing them. I was disappointed however about the "man is destroying the world" bent. He said, "I have no answers but here is the information." One reason he has no answers is because he only considered a narrow view of the information, cherry picked photos designed to portray a conclusion he has taken for granted: man is destroying the planet, forcing people off the seas into hovels, destroying the climate. A few quick pictures, and boom, a conclusion. I would prefer a more investigative approach, illustrating multiple sides of these issues, or at least a refrain from stating conclusions based on anecdotal evidence.
