So, I just wrote about the Fujifilm X-Pro 2. It is a nice enough camera. I used it over the past six months. The fact of the matter is though, I never felt much of a connection to that camera. It worked just fine, but it never made me want to take photos. It was […]
I haven’t written for a while. I would like to say the main reason is that I’ve been moving and having had any time. While the fact of that is true, it isn’t the real reason for not having made a new post. As many of you know, or could see here, I had been […]
A month or so ago, I wrote a long post talking about a Sony digital compact camera I had that died. I wrote about how much I loved that camera. Wrote about how it taught me more about photography than almost any camera I had every used. I talked about how it cured me of […]
This may seem a repost. Might seem a bit of dejavu. It feels that way for me too. You know when you pull off a band aid or jump into a cold pool? Better to do it in one shot. It hurts less. This brings me to the death of a friend: my Sony DSC-W100. […]
I don’t feel inspired much lately. I don’t take my camera with me very often, don’t take photos often even if I do. I don’t get a chance to travel much. This weekend though, the arrival of a friend from Toronto gave me the excuse to head into Busan.
We were on the metro and she blew me a kiss. Like a boyfriend does, I took a picture. “Why’d you take a picture?” “I dunno, it felt right..” “Okay…” It sometimes just feels right. To take a photo. Maybe a fear that I won’t always be able to remember walks in the rain. Maybe […]
I’ve been working a little bit on this series of “contact sheets.” So far, I talked about a couple of my favorite photos from the past year or so. This one, ha, is a bit funny. The story behind taking Eric’s current (at the time of this writing) profile photo. The story starts in the […]
I’ve been busy. Busy with what? I am not even sure I know. Cooking ramen? I’m a big fan. This one is of the black noodle variety.
Been a while since I’ve posted anything, and will probably be a while before I do again. I often say I’m going to take a break and rarely do, ha. Definitely needed this time though. Working on too many things and not nearly enough time. No time to shoot, no time to post, no time […]
The second in a series of mini contact sheets. In this case, it was a portrait I took near the Hongdae District of Seoul at a pretty dingy little bar I happened into. This guy, was sitting on the side of the table opposite this poster. I’m not sure why, but I thought the lines […]
More fish. After spending the previous weekend in Busan I found it hard to get away from the couple of photos I took there. I feel like I figured something out about myself there. I’ve always found it really hard to explain why I like the photos I take with small, compact cameras more. It […]
I was packing for a one night trip to Busan on Friday and I had a problem that I hadn’t had in a while. I couldn’t figure out what camera to take with me. To travel, or to take photos, ha. It is a difficult question as I feel like too many people can’t distinguish […]
A question of style. Sitting around with a group of non-photography friends the other day one of them all of a sudden asked me why I posted a “‘normal” colour photo of them on Facebook. I thought it was a weird fucking question, considering the photo was just taken while they were just standing in a […]
Taking a break for a while is definitely good. It was needed. Lots of pizza, TV, and an attempt to cut my own hair after it got butchered by a local shop. A good weekend all around. Funny that, when I was living in Toronto I would have hated to have stayed for more than […]
Last week, I deleted just about every photo I ever took. Everything from my hard drive. My Lightroom backups and libraries. I hated it all and it all had to get rid of it. What a fucking relief. Felt like graduating high school. I went out that night and decided shit is going to be […]
For no one. I do this for no one. The battle is all internal. As is the gratification. I used to care about opinion. I used to give a fuck. Used to wait on flickr favorites and facebook likes. Superficial bullshit. I don’t do this for anyone else. I’m looking for something deeper than the […]
Good friends aren’t easy to come by. They aren’t readily available and certainly don’t grow on the proverbial tree. They do tend to stick around, though. And the really good ones always got your back. Seoul, South Korea.
