Photography: The Story Behind The Image

Last week in photography we learned about photographer Joe McNally and looked at some of his works and today in preparing for tomorrow's test we'll look at the story behind one of his most iconic images for National Geographic, the changing of the light bulb on the Empire State Building.  The video above is the story of the shoot which took a few attempts to be successful.  This is a very timely lesson as Joe posted earlier today that he had " climbed the worlds tallest building today. What an amazing structure! Tweeting from… " for a photograph on top of the Burj Khalifa.
