Summer of 2001 I taught Photo Philosophy on Whidbey Island. I joked that I would be teaching manual photography under the shadow of “Windows.” There were eight students all using film. Most I convinced to use manual one shot at a time. To see and think and see again as the camera sees. Learning to see and understand simplicity. I now own a digital camera [for quick color never decaffeinate] but use it on manual all the time yet it still makes adjustments I don’t want. I strive to make all the decisions, meter, compose in view finder almost never crop [this image is slightly cropped due to it being printed on post card paper] there is always an exception. One image at a time belongs to you. One hundred images blasted off in in a minute on auto everything belong to the camera. The decisive moment! My moment. My thoughts repeated, lived and not changing soon. LOL My web designers spent a few hours last Wednesday figuring out some update problems on this word press site. As I post this morning I notice there are two more updates to add. Well I’ve rambled my thoughts on Photographic Art long enough. Look at the image, like it or not tell your friends. enjoy pjc not updated in 25 years!
