Living in the now

Sometimes, I wish i could go back to the days when I didn’t take photos. Never did I have to think about what camera to bring, if it was safe to bring this camera or that camera, If the light was good or bad, overcast or sunny.

I’m beginning to think that the more I photograph, the more time I spend behind the camera, shielded from whats really going on, the less I am immersed in the moment, and thus more detached from really living….

Taking photography to the next level

I’m not sure if I prefer photography or cinema. Most of the time cinema moves me emotionally, more than a photo. There are of course exceptions. Now and again a photo will stop you in your tracks and really make you think, or question something. Photos are so open ended, and I think that what i like about them; their mystery.

Putting photos in a sequence, adding vocals, and possibly a soundtrack really takes them to the next level. They take on a whole new meaning.

This summer I hope to make a multimedia piece with photos, soundbites, and hopefully, some kind of soundtrack. Check out the link below to Bruce Gilden’s Fresno. A great little multimedia piece.
