What is your name?
When did you begin listening to The Candid Frame?
I'm a new listener. I've been listening to the Candid Frame avidly for about five months now.
How long have you been shooting and what inspired your interest in photography?
I've been shooting seriously since 2005. I've always had an interest in photography, or at least the mechanics of it. When I was a child I remember sneaking into my father's camera bag. I would pull out the Minolta camera body, open the lenses and fire the flash. I was fascinated by it. I can remember the cold, heavy camera body and the smell of film. I love the tools of the trade. But throughout my adolescence I rarely picked up a camera. Then later in life I fell in love with writing, which led me to pursue a degree in journalism. It was there that I rediscovered my love for photography, specifically photojournalism and documentary photography. Now I can't imagine doing anything else.
Do you have a preferred genre or specialty of photography? Why?
Documentary and Landscape Photography. It is my intention to create bodies of work on the duality of nature as wilderness and resource, and to express the oxymoron that is "natural resource."
What is your name?
Around two months ago, working my way through the back episodes though!
How long have you been shooting and what inspired your interest in photography? I’ve had two stints with photography. Around 20 years ago I did a photography course at the local college, producing my own black & white prints, even made my own developer (Pyro!). Fast forward a few years & photography fell by the wayside & I stopped shooting so much. After using a D90 casually to capture family photos, I’ve had my passion for the subject reignited. So I’m still very much the amateur with loads to learn. Despite the large gap in practice, I never really stopped seeing photographically and it’s this that inspires me. For me photography isn’t just about making the images, it’s far more about how to see. I’m a software architect by trade, but despite shiny gadget-lust it’s the artistic aspect of photography that attracts me.
Do you have a preferred genre or specialty of photography? I’ll cheat & say Travel, which can encompasses street, people, landscape, architectureRead More
