LW0990 - Not Standing Still

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

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.

LW0983 - Long-term Projects

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

There is a difference between short-term and long-term projects that has more to do with psychology than with time. Planning, for one, is far more important. I find I need to pre-think more aspects of a long-term project than I do with a short-term one.

LW0982 - A Thousand Ways to Fail

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

When was the last time you backed up your digital files? You do have a backup plan, right? Boy, was I glad I had one last night during a potentially disastrous failure that turned out to be a non-event - thanks to my backup plan.

LW0981 - Photography and Fiction

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

Photography itself is supposedly factual and objective. Artwork is anything but that. So, why insist that a photographic project be truthful? Why not photo-fiction? And by that, I don't mean Photoshop distortions of factual pictures, but rather fictional stories that combine image and text - for example, like the work of Wright Morris or Duane Michals?

LW0979 - Learning Never Stops

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

(image)

From time to time, I'll hear a photographer say, "I'm too old to learn digital photography." We are never too old. I'm 62 and I just started to study Mandarin. If I can do it, you can too. Join the old dog club and just jump in - and have fun!
