frame it

Idon’t spend much time on social media, but when I do I’m often assaulted by a stream of pictures that must have been taken by a camera-wielding cat (we’ll call him Garfield) that leaped from a moving car. They’re often out of focus, poorly composed, poorly lit, or the photographer cut off someone’s feet or head and left me wondering what the subject was. Apparently our feline shutterbug, while attempting to land on its feet, put zero thought into composing said images. In the inaugural Viewfinder we discussed the age-old truism that the best camera for any job is the one you have in your hand. This month we delve into the most crucial component of creative imaging: How to identify your subject, frame it, and fine-tune the composition prior…

Record the Journey, Veteran Overland, and Southern Xpeditions have three things in common: a great love for the outdoors, vehicle-sustained adventure, and helping veterans. Each organization has its unique spin on making a difference, but collectively they do it with passion, honesty, and humility. Veterans helping veterans, changing lives at every dusty turn of a trail, campfire chat, or re-integration into everyday life. The leaders of this trio are all veterans. Their love for the outdoors and adventure drew each of them, independently, to overlanding. They were enveloped in the community and realized over time that vehicular-based travel and experiencing Mother Nature was healing them. In turn, they wanted to give back, help others, and share this experience with veterans struggling with reintegration, PTSD, or a host of other postwar or…
