PERSONAL WORK AND MUSINGS ON PHOTOGRAPHY
8×10 film, Century 10A studio camera (1923)
Drawing with Uncle David
A spring walk with my Fuji X-T1, which is a wonderful choice for a walk-around camera. I usually photographing people, and often on assignment – it’s rare to be able to just relax and photography what’s right in front of me.
We often say that the gear doesn’t matter; as if the equipment and the artistry were polar opposites, and at odds with one another. The truth is that they are intertwined. I’ve since sold the Fuji, but while I had it I was challenged to see my familiar town differently, and to photograph scenes I’d normally have passed by.
A little blurry, but so is life when you’re 2 years old and making friends….
Crayons and an empty film container – what else do you need?
I get satisfaction out of creating a classic portrait, and I enjoy the creativity of an editorial shoot as much as anyone. But I consider myself blessed when I can capture moments like these – unscripted, of people growing up, and discovering life.
