David Butler at Quiltcon

I really enjoyed his lecture - appreciated that he was so forthcoming about how they pulled off their photo shoots - the pretty basic camera and lo-tech gear. Many photographers wield their knowledge like a club, trying to trip you up or expose you as less informed/capable/in-the-know than they are. There can be a lot of one-upmanship (in my experience), so it was refreshing that he was so candid and willing to demystify their process - there's no huge crew creating elaborate sets, just stuff they set up in their house made of foamboard and prints. Local non-professional models. He relies on post-production to make everything work.
