OK, time to get into what we've all been waiting for: street photography, amirite everyone?!! *crickets chirping*
Well, maybe it's not that bad but while it's not what I'd call lucrative, #streetphotography
is pretty closely related to daily #photojournalism
and what a lot of us do in our work. As I mentioned yesterday, real life and the communities and people around us.
and I'm honoured to work the @npac_appc
Instagram feed this week. My thanks to @colebreiland
for asking me.
About a decade ago, I decided on a whim to try shooting film again. I segregated it to my daily walk to and from work, since I often noticed odd vignettes on that commute each day.
Soon, I noticed there were a lot of odd, and oddly noteworthy, moments in this strange little town. I'm not suggesting this place is any more special or interesting than anywhere else but I do think this proves the notion that by paying attention to the world around us, we'll learn how much we've been missing.
It's just human nature that we often go about our day on autopilot, and any photography (but especially street) is a powerful tool to break us out of that numbness.
As time went by, I not only discovered a whole neighbourhood around me, but also a deep love for #filmphotography
that has enriched my life and obliterated any hope of a debt-free future.
As I wrote yesterday: Try. Look. Patience. Time. It all adds up.
