white house photographer david kennerly has won every major award given it a still photographer. now he is out with a new book about a tool that puts, in his words, every shooter on the same playing field. the book is called david kennerly on the iphone. we were just talking, i think you may have been other our show years and years ago when we had a 9:00 newscast. but i think people who are long time watchers of what happens in washington know a lot about
your background, having photographed robert f. kennedy on the campaign trail, president gerald ford's photographer, you have had an ileus industrious career -- an -- a wonderful career using's still camera. >> and i still do. whether it is an iphone or camera phone, we all have them. >> i brought mine along. >> i'm hoping for tips. >> and i can probably help you out. >> that is why you are here. >> exactly. one of the reasons i did the book was, i was doing a photo a day project with the iphone. i like to challenge myself personally. every day i have been doing this for almost 50 years, i'm not happy unless i'm making good pictures. when you have that little tool, it really helped me even become a better photographer. >> what i read about you, you said once before, that you can teach someone how to take a
picture, but you can't teach them how to see. really it doesn't matter the instrument you are using, it is what you see. >> that's right. i think, i can't help you, i can't teach you how to see, but i can show you where to look. and one of the things about beyond the iphone book is exactly that. and you wanted some tips, one of them, i know it is, we all are so familiar with our surroundings, even being in the studio or in your home or around your neighborhood, one of my ideas was pretend you are a martian that just landed here on earth for the first time, and try to look at everything in a new way. and on top of that, i came up with this idea. with the kennerly 60 minute photo workout, which is go around your neighborhood, try to get five good pictures of things you see every day, but never really looked at. and it's amazing what you could come up with. >> you also said about digital
photography, that we are so busy looking at what we just snapped that we might miss a good image. is that true with a cell phone as well? >> i think it's true. i think rather than just taking pictures like i was there in front of the eiffel tower in front of the kremlin or wherever, the emotional content of a photograph is what makes you want to look at it. i think the memories that you get will be a lot better if you take pictures that have some meaning to you. it is not just another snap. >> so looking at the person who is looking at the eiffel tower, maybe, and seeing something in their expression would be what we see? >> well when it comes itself physician, you don't always want your face in front of every monument. do that, and then try to take something that is a little more artistic. when you look through the pictures in the book, you can take these kind of pictures. granted, i'm a professional photographer, but i have, i'm on a real mission to help
people take better pictures so they'll have the experience they can show their grandkids in a better frame. >> and this is the perfect time to learn it and get the book. david kennerly, good to have you back here. >> thank you. >> continued success with this new book. let's go to howard use davi send some of that rain out to california. they could use it. >> reporter: we'd love to. believe me. we have plenty out there right now. in fact this system, drawing in moisture off the gulf of mexico. these are tornado watches in northern florida through eastern north carolina. there have been a few isolated tornadoes today. we have a lot of heavy rain here. in our neck of the woods, the worst of the weather is coming through right now. we'll have lingering showers to the west. you get west of the appalachians. now we have cold air, with snow falling across parts of ohio and western pennsylvania. you notice along and east of i- 95, seems to be the worst of
the weather, quickly moving to the newport east. west of the blue ridge, breaks developing toward the shanendoah valley. this stuff these oranges and reds, it is coming down at a really good clip. it is coming down said allen in bowie. good chunk of montgomery county west of those areas, things are quieting down. i want to show you down 95. what a difference, east of 95 into charles county now through king george over to colonial beach we have heavy rain. west between warrenton and i-95 we have lighter showers here. although southern prince william has a couple of moderate showers. there evening lightning in colonial beach for 15 minutes or so. our friends on the eastern shore also, all this is moving up toward you. you are going to get the heavy rain for another one to two hours. look what is coming south, as
we head towa reidville and the lower eastern shore, pro duce saint patrick's day lightning and thunder as well. this time of year, small hail is easy to generate. it is a dreary looking day. lucky to get into the low 50s, maybe mid-50s in a couple of spots. but the rain has been keeping us chilly today. if there is a lingering shower at 7:00, it will be very isolated and by 9:00 some clearing, 42. and the cold is on the way. here's the cold you can ceasesly see. only 30 in columbus and cleveland, near 70 in norfolk. this is what is coming and this cold is going to be with us for a couple of days now. 41 in cumberland and we are stuck at 46 in washington and frederick. with the rain, at reagan national, winds are calm at the moment, and it is just not a pretty day. futurecast, shows how quickly this stuff will pullt. by 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. for the drive home, we should be in much better shape.

in a race, it's about getting to the finish line. thanksgiving. we are doing that in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal pain or any nerve or muscle
related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today.
