don’t think

You mustn’t want, you must be receptive; don’t think, even, the brain’s a bit dangerous. Sensitivity is the flavor of moments. Henri Cartier-Bresson

All photographs demarcate their own period in time. You must not disregard the first image you ever made for future photographs. Every image you have made is relevant and important in your development. You must also remember that, as in life, the choices you make will determine your future as a photographer. Every decision you make-from…

. photographs not taken

 

 

 
I just started reading the most amazing book about photographs not taken. The Photographs Not Taken is a collection of photographer’s essays edited by Will Steacy and published by Daylight. I just received it in the mail yesterday and haven’t been able to put it down. It’s been awhile since I’ve read anything so enticing.

. processing a vision

 

Back in October I made an image that I didn’t take. It was a photograph I had in my mind. A vision of a feeling and an emotional moment brought to fruition. I picked the location, I picked the lighting and time of day, I picked the aperture and the shutter speed, I picked the models (although I did have to settle for one style element that was not as I had wanted it. I had just emerged from…

Africa has always had a special place in my heart since taking this trip with my mom, “Mama Africa” who has visited Africa at least a dozen times. She guided…

We will gather at a Tuscan inspired organic farm right…

.why I heart Instagram

 

I am in love with this app called Instagram. It’s got a bad rap for breaking your phone images down into goo with hardly any information left. However, I’ve made a book of all Instagram images from our staycation on the boat last summer because I took so many fun images with my iPhone. I only pulled out the SLR for special visits to “Big Kid Beach,” when we sailed to Catalina and to greet the Polynesian Outriggers coming…
