Once again I've got some analog images to show in this blog, and unlike last week's batch I think I nailed the focus in at least one or two of these with "my" (technically dad's) Zeiss Ikon Nettar 6 x 6 camera from 1957. I must say I am starting to like these large negatives...the amount of information in them is pretty amazing!Read More
As much as I've been shooting black and white analog stuff this year (of which I've developed some but not yet scanned them) it's hard to deny that outside the window the colors are pretty much as vibrant as they're going to be...until the fall colors descend upon us in a few months' time.Read More
Another month of my 2016 365 project is over and as of the end of July I’m at the point where I called it quits last time I tried this year long project back in 2014. Not so this time! I’ve got no plans on quitting this because I still find it fun to find an image to post on a daily basis. I’ve discovered that the key is not to let yourself lag behind even for a day, because it is way too easy to say to yourself that it’s no biggie...you can always post two tomorrow. That tends to lead to more laziness and then you have to post three or more in a row, and that’s more like a chore than something you do for fun...and this is supposed to be fun after all!
As before I’ve chosen five images, plus a cover images for this blog post to write a bit more about. So here we go!Read More
This summer has been really crappy weather wise, but this weekend it worked to my favor as I took part in a photowalk at the Ribersborg beach. Had it been a "normal" summer this area would have been so full of swimmers and sunbathers that it'd be difficult to walk around without risking stepping on someone's towel...or face!Read More
I don't know how many photographers have been swept up in the whole Five Days, Five Black and White shots challenge thing on either Facebook or Google+, but I've just posted my fifth and final image and I figured I'd post them here as a whole (not that they are a collection or on a common theme).
The more I've done photography through the years the more I tend to do black and white photos (much to the chagrin of my dear mother who just doesn't "like" black and white photos ;-)), so it was a fairly easy process to find five images to post.
Well, actually it was more a process of eliminating shots that I wanted to include but couldn't. As usual my selection process involved having way too many photos to pick from and from there narrowing it down to the final five.
Now I am sure that's nothing unusual for photographers (or any artist making selections for public events, but I find it fascinating that at first I think I don't have any good shots to show, then I go through my stuff and pick the "maybe's" and the "potentials" and I usually end up with twice as many as I have room to show. From there it's a process of elimination, and finding the reasons why an image should either stay or go.
The five images I picked for the five day challenge turned out to be an interesting bunch. I've got two street photos, two details photos and one landscape photo and I think that fairly well reflects the sorts of photography that I tend to do. It wasn't a conscious choice to do this, but I like the way they are "collected" here.
