The first article I ever sold to a treasure magazine was called Photography for the Treasure Hunter. It appeared in the November 1977 issue of Western and Eastern Treasures.
This podcast is an update of that article.
Two points I discuss in the show are illustrated by this photo (which appeared in the original article).
Note how I framed Kathy by shooting through a swing, and also note the use of the Rule of Thirds. That is, she is in the top third/left third of the picture - approximately where lines would cross if you drew a tic-tac-toe board on the photo.
Also note the error in this shot - she looks like she has a post growing out of her back. I should have repositioned her a bit before I took the photo.
