Tue, 21 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

The birth of LensWork was the unexpected consequence of volunteering to do a task because I wanted to learn something. Who'd have guessed it would lead to Podcast #999?

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

A short break from creativity to talk about cameras. Here are the five camera features I now consider to be my "non-negotiable" list when considering a new camera.

LW0997 - Photography Is Not Mechanical Painting

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

In the pantheon of art media, photography occupies a unique position that allows us to tell a story, but with sufficient time for reflection and developing a deeper understanding. It is so unfortunate that photography, when presented like a painting - in a frame on the wall - tends to promote viewing with a glance. This viewing habit leaves photography's greatest strength untapped.

LW0996 - Digital Picture Frames

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

I finally had a chance to look at a new 4K digital picture frame. Fantastic - and, my goodness, where is this leading us? Is it time to consider how this game changer might be changing photography? If not today, should we at least start thinking about what digital frames might imply in the future as the technology continues to evolve?

LW0995 - The Burden of Equipment

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

My ideal camera would be perfectly transparent to my creative process, weigh exactly 0.0 pounds, and use one f/1.2 lens that ranged from 14mm to 400mm and be the size of a tennis ball. One can dream, can't one? In the meantime, the struggle with equipment continues.

LW0994 - YouTube, Yikes

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

I've recently immersed myself in YouTube as I needed to learn some tech stuff. As useful as this was, I found YouTube to be just a bit scary in its pressure toward conformity.

LW0993 - The Golden Hour

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Is it really necessary to rise at 0:Dark:30 in order to be photographing the landscape during that first light of sun? Is the Golden Hour really magical?

LW0991 - Defining Success

Tue, 24 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

How many images are required to be successful in a given situation? If one good image makes a session a success, does it matter at all how many exposures it takes to get there? Curious implications for handheld, slow shutter, image stabilized photography.

Beethoven keeps nagging at me. He said, "Art demands of us that we shall not stand still." So, it's his fault that I'm buying a new portrait lens.

LW0989 - Stop Thinking About Photography

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

Means to an end . . . Means to an end . . . Means to an end. Photography is not the goal; it is the tool we use to reach the goal - some form of artistic expression that uses photography, but not about photography.

LW0988 - The Shot

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

In my mind, there is something completely different between using a camera to get "the shot" and using a camera to make artwork.

LW0987 - Shooting Mindset

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

In Japan in 2009, I had decided to take only my monopod and work fast and light. I loved the idea, but observed on the first day how I quickly fell into a shoot-move-shoot-move-shoot-move frenetic pattern that degraded into an unconscious and unproductive race for more images.

LW0986 - ISO, Noise, and the Artwork

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

The question is not how a high ISO affects the noise level, but rather how does high ISO affect the artwork? After some noise reduction, and especially in a print at our final size, can you actually see a difference compared to a low ISO image?

LW0985 - My Favorite Excuses

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

From time to time, I get stuck - unable to leap over a creative block. What do I want to photograph next? That's when my bagful of excuses comes in handy. But truth be told, they are no more than a cover for something more fundamental that needs to be addressed.

LW0984 - We Make Pictures

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

We photographers prefer to discuss our "photographs" or our "images." Rarely do I hear the word "pictures" used in fine art photography circles. Nonetheless, we are essentially picture makers. With this in mind, I recommend two books that can help us place photography in the larger context of pictures and picture making - The Printed Picture by Richard Benson and A History of Pictures by David Hockney.
