I want to take the time in this blog post to say that I am having fun with fashion photography and fine art composites, certainly, but I will never truly stray from FILM and street photography.
Those are my artistic roots in photography and where I always return to in walkabouts throughout my own neighborhoods -or- wherever I travel.
There is something of practicing and playing an instrument, like shooting often - where I find investing a daily practice of "playing my instrument"/MY CAMERA - not only important, but imperative. I am still on the road of putting in my "10,000 hours" toward mastery. :-)
Here are two street shots I took while photographing a musician, Andrew Duhon, who was in town in Portland recently -and- during a photo concept series with Beth Dodge, downtown Portland. There was a protest going on right next to us as she was posing as "a piece of trash."
So much fun to capture spontaneous, good-looking, compositional moments!
Even sometimes, ON COLOR FILM!
Once in awhile, well, BAM!
