ďIf you take photographs, donít speak, donít write, donít analyse yourself, and donít answer any questions.Ē Robert Doisneau|
Every eye is different, even in the same place. That's the beauty of photography.....Jose Figueroa
I donít do workshops, I donít like interviews. I donít like repeating myself and I donít like to preach. My time is limited and I try to use it as best I can. The most important thing is to keep doing what you love, and I love photographyĒ
I've been making pictures for over 40 years; with all sorts of cameras: an old manual focus Mamiya Secor camera, point-and-shoots, and various Pentax cameras. In 2000, lusting after a digital camera, I bought a Sony DSC-S70 and a used Canon Pro70. Nice and fun, but no joy. No feeling of accomplishment. I bought the Canon Digital Rebel in the middle of February 2004, with an upgrade to a 20D in September 2004. I've added a Canon 40D, 30D, and a Canon 5D and a Pentax K10D to my lineup of cameras, and a whole lot of lenses.
In summer 2007, after giving away all my film gear I started scanning my old film negatives.
The look of film compared to digital was stunning and I have since gone back to the "feel" of film
with digital for the times I want a quicker turn around in processing or for fast moving
subjects, etc. Thanks to fabulous negative scanning technology, I can enjoy both.
Digital photography will turn out better photographers than film ever did;
it's an immediate feedback information loop. No waiting for darkroom processing to fix
technique. Young photographers who have never used an analog camera are buying and using them
and developing their own film. Digital users are trying to make their photos look like film.
One feeds the other. And so it goes....
