Watchers

    Been a while since I updated my journal. I'm mostly going to focus on getting out and shooting! I'm sure very little of you take time to read my rants anyway. That's cool I understand.

    As you might be noticing, I've taken an eye to street shooting lately. It is something I've always wanted to experiment with and I'm having a lot of fun with it because it's a completely different feeling when shooting. It's like you are trying to remain completely unseen while seeing as much as possible. It's funny how people react sometimes when you point a camera their way. I've been reading a lot about street photography and the difference between it and street portraiture. Street portraiture is when you have a subject that is posing or staring directly at you, you are influencing that exposure. Whereas street photography is when you capture something raw and real, uninfluenced by you. I like that concept, its interesting and fun to try and remain unseen. Living in Seattle, there is a lot of interesting people and happenstances everywhere. 

    I've been shooting with my beloved Fuji XT1 and the magical 35mm f1.4, that combined with lightroom gives me a lot of satisfying images, however I know I need to also stay on track with other mediums of photography. Back in my early works I shot film a lot and found it quite a rewarding way to shoot. Even developed my own 35mm negatives in a pitch black bathroom with towels under the door to prevent any light from disrupting the process. Took a lot of trial and error but got some good exposures from it. So in the near and not too far future expect some 35mm work to emerge once again. I need to look into some cameras first as I sold most of my film shooting collection a while ago due to financial issues. 

    My sister Billi who lives on Maui with her now fiance John just announced they are getting married on the beach here this coming May of 2016. She insisted I be her official wedding photographer so I'm looking forward to that very much. It's going to be a very unique unorthodox wedding, so I'm going to try and apply that some description to my shots if I can. 

    I've sure been receiving a lot of llama badges lately, thanks I guess. I'd rather recieve comments on my work and I'll be sure to comment back. There is nothing I appreciate more then a comment. I miss them. 

Thanks for reading if you did!
I'll buy you a drink, cheers!
