Dad in Hospital 2004

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 22:55:51 +0000

I really did try to photograph just about every part of life, including hospital visits.  My sisters were usually shocked by this “invasion of privacy,” but I asked dad if he’d mind a shot or two.  And he perked up.  He was in the hospital (I think) for a stent.  This was after the operation […]

Reality of Street Photos

FADE IN People think that photography captures reality, but believe me, it captures the photographer.  This sequence of shots is fascinating, at least for me, because it shows that many idea of shooting were actually picked up in my movie making days. The first shot is what is called the Establishment shot; or the master […]

Taste of Snow Sequence – The Keeper

Most photographs are junk.  And with digital, I think even more are junk than in the film days since you don’t lose much by clicking.  What you usually don’t see on the web – the sequence that lead up to “the keeper” and the shots that follow “the keeper.”  And even with all that said, […]

Coin Fishing

2004.  He did roll up his coat sleeve, but it immediately came down as his arm went into the reflecting pool at the Metropolitan Museum.  I just found his look so old-timer, and it wasn’t that long ago.  He reminded me of somebody from Angela’s Ashes.  Maybe the disappearing dad. I ran into him many […]

Fashion Police

  Mamiya 6.  I had money in those days.  I took this shot with what they called the Big Leica – or the Texas Rangefinder a few other things.  The first and most popular version was the 6 x 6 version.  It took three lenses.  Widish, normal, and long.  The long was difficult to use […]

The Man in the White Jacket

1984.  That was weird.  We were at the hospital.  Mom on a gurney.  Very cold.  I get her another blanket.  Why do they always keep hospitals so cold?  Is cold associated with cleanliness?  Probably.  But here I sit, waiting.  And there she is waiting for what?  Some sort of x ray I think.  Not MRI […]

Tips for an Imaginary Camera Manufacturer

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 21:16:14 +0000

Tip 1: Have a mode that flips the live image right to left, and also bottom to top.  In other words, have a view camera screen.  I’m sure it’s easy to do in firmware.  Seeing things in this abstract way is one of the best means to get learn compositions.  I have it from a […]

Getting to Chinese Cardplayers

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 03:50:16 +0000

Andy poses the question, how did I end up in Chinatown on this particular day, and what brought me to click the shutter at this time.  I also ask myself the same question.  As well as if this was the exact place to be standing, and I know I had to crop it on left […]

About Photography in the 21st Century

dave

Since I did go through the trouble of calling this thing a Photo Blog, I had an idea last night that it would be good to write something about photography.  As I was falling asleep, I remembered an article (before posts we called ’em articles) about street photography.  And it got me to thinking about […]
