Thu, 16 Mar 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Report on my real-world week without a tripod, using Panasonic's "dual stabilization" and high ISO managed with post-processing noise reduction. Technical, but the implications for my photographing process are profound.

LW1005 - My Inner Interpretarian

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Rarely do the images I create look like the places I've photographed. I've concluded I'm not in the least a documentarian, but rather an interpretarian.

LW1003 - Sharing the Creative Life Across Media

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

(image)

After spending a week at a pottery conference in North Carolina, I'm convinced more than ever that artists have a lot to share with each other outside our chosen medium. The art life we share is as important as the medium we don't.

LW1002 - The Decisive Metaphor

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

(image)

Ever since Henri Cartier-Bresson introduced "the decisive moment" into the photographic lexicon, we've heard it proclaimed as the photographic strategy. Perhaps it is, but I've found that thinking in terms of "the decisive metaphor" has been an even better criteria for directing my work.

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.
