The Simple Pleasure of Dropping off a Roll of Film

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

There really is quite no other feeling like dropping off a roll of film to be developed.  The only thing better would be to do the processing yourself.

In this digital age we are all living in, analog has been freed from the masses, and the artist can indulge in film however they like.  Don’t get me wrong.  I still love my digital work.  To be able to process the work so quickly is fantastic too.  But that method of popping a roll in the back of a camera, being selective in what you shoot, then to finally walk down the street to the processing store is a great feeling.

The roll I dropped off today, has pictures going back to last August of last summer to a few pics I snapped Monday night this week.  I only selected two images to share today and both are from last summer when Tomo and I went out to Narita Temple in Chiba, for a day of shooting.  Other images include some of my work with the Hip Hop scene in Miami.

as usual more to come…

so go out and shoot a roll or film, you’ll thank yourself for it.

Trickster Abstractions

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Back to one of my favorite subjects.  The political tricksters ant their posters.

I am not sure why I am so drawn to these gaudy posters.  It might be the challenge

in their pure horror, and ugliness to create something abstract and intriguing.  

 

I see photography as a process, which the goal is to create the best possible image.

This of course starts with the way the image was shot, which camera was used, exposures and 

what have you, but it does not end there.  One needs to keep on pushing and pulling the image

until the image satisfies something in your soul.  When it does it is ready to be shown.
