Something I’ve been struggling with lately with my street photography has been if the photos I’m taking are meaningful. It seems so difficult sometimes to make a street photo that has something “special” about it.
Amazing image taken by Thomas Leuthard. This illustrates how amazing and out the box he thinks. So awesome!
The other day I was speaking with my make up artist/model friend Ang and I told her not to worry worry about the shoot. We’ll just let it fly. She mentioned she liked that phrase and we had a conversation about what letting it fly means. Read more →
If your photos aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough. -Robert Capa
When I first read these words 6-7 years ago stated by my photo hero and Magnum photographer Robert Capa, the first thing I started doing was trying to physically get closer to my subjects. And I do believe getting right up close with my subjects did in fact improve my photos. Whether it be on the streets, in the studio, or on the dance floor at a wedding, I feel like getting close to the people I photographed, makes the viewer feel like they were there. Like they were in the intimate space I was in when I shot the picture. Its also fun for me when it works out. Read more →
I often find myself looking at my images wondering if they would be considered “timeless.” Would they ever be considered classic. Could even one, just one of my images ever be considered one of the greats of our time. Read more →
Well its that time of the year again. I’m returning to school after completing my first year as a photography major. I learned quite a bit last year from how to process and develop film, to some drawing techniques, and design techniques. I even got to really experiment in my artificial lighting class with some methods I never tried before. Read more →
So it turned out my Quadro Frame set up wasn’t nice enough for the show and my photos were placed in much nicer frames. The display of my 3 images were nice and clean (one was upside down lol) Other than that, I observed a few people look at the images for a minute or so which is a good thing. I made a video of it but unfortunately the video was lost due to my phone having to be replaced :(. Here are a few images from the project though.
