In his own words


Landscape photography?  Ansel Adams.

Portraits?  Yousuf Karsh.

Street photography?  Henri Cartier-Bresson.  Of course.

This video is 18 minutes long but you owe it to yourself.  Hear him describe his intentions and purpose.  It’s worth it…

    A number of things stuck me from this video: “Anyone can produce 10 great photographs in their lifetime. But to be consistent in creating great photographs is difficult.” and, “I like to live where I am taking photographs.” Oh, to have that luxury. Most of us take a trip and have two days here, two days there. It was also interesting to me that he said he didn’t take that many shots in order to get these gems. He was a supreme observer and was always ready for the shot in an instant. Marvelous.

    Thanks for the link Rey.

      Thanks, Prentis. Well said.

      I too was struck by the notion that he didn’t shoot a lot to get the real winners. Ah, the discerning eye.

        …One of the unintended consequences of digital; shooting indiscriminately without thinking about the cost and spending less time really thinking about the shot itself.
