LW1034 - Travel Equipment List

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Before traveling, I ask myself this: What is it that can lead to failure, and how can I avoid the worst of those failures with the least amount of equipment?

LW1033 - Experience versus Art

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

It's worth remembering that we look at our photographs differently than anyone else will because we remember the experience of having captured the image in the field.

LW1032 - Three Biggies

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Who are the people from the history of photography that you admire the most? Our choice of "biggies" probably says more about us than it does about their photography. So, it might be reasonable to do some reverse engineering. What do all of these photographers have in common that might be useful in our photographic path?

LW1031 - Input versus Output

Wed, 05 Jul 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Art-making is a curious process of input and output. The key is finding the ratio between the two that produces meaningful work.

LW1030 - Social Media

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

I'm an advocate for digital publication and distribution of images, but I'm not a fan of social media. There is a very good reason why - at least for me and my artwork.

LW1029 - Swallowing a Whole Chicken

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Sharing work has become a much greater challenge in this age of such easy sharing of our work. Viewer fatigue and consumption realities are worth thinking about.

LW1026 - Needing versus Lusting After a New Lens

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Do we always need the best lens money can buy? I'd love to say yes because it would give me an excuse to purchase the new lens I am lusting after. But when I look at the images I've made with my existing lenses, I cannot say I'm unhappy with them. Hmmm...

LW1025 - Passing It On

Tue, 30 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

True teachers are more than willing to share - openly, freely, without restrictions. I'm so grateful to all those who have helped me in my art life that it's always an honor to be able to pass on what I've learned.

LW1023 - Large and Small Strategy

Tue, 23 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Over the decades of our artmaking life, we'll have a limited number of major projects - exhibitions, publications, etc. How do we keep momentum if the major projects are somewhat scarce? Having a strategy for both large and small projects can help.

LW1022 - Obstructions

Thu, 18 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

I was recently asked my opinion about the new electronic viewfinders in mirrorless cameras. Unexpectedly, this question led to an interesting thought process that clarified for me why I never use a viewfinder.

LW1021 - A Glaring Oversight

Tue, 16 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

In all the reviews I've done over the years, I've never once been asked an obvious question. I'm often asked about exhibition possibilities; I'm always asked about book or magazine publication; but never once have I had a photographer ask about digital publication. In the age of the Internet, doesn't it seem like this would come up from time to time? How odd that it never does.

Thu, 11 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Pre-game jitters. Launch hesitation. The calm before the storm. Whatever you call it, it can be a part of the art life, too.

LW1019 - A Definition of Fine Art Photographs

Tue, 09 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Just as a rough aid to my process of thinking when I'm in the field, I find it useful to divide photographs into three types: Memory aids; Objective documents; Comparisons or relationships.

Here is an excellent technique I learned from David Bayles that can be incredibly useful for finding a project in your images that you might not even know is buried there.

LW1017 - Triangulation

Tue, 02 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

I've discovered a word that perfectly expresses why I am so excited about the six-image project concept - both for Seeing in SIXES and for my own work. That word is triangulation. Multiple-image projects allow us to triangulate toward an idea and add information that clarifies the concept behind the images.
