Santa Monica

A homage to my film days.

For many of us photographers, we started off  photographing on film and film cameras and I like to think that's the best way to learn this craft. You begin to see how the the emoltion reacts to light and how your method of wet processing and printing changes the effects and quality of the images by the slitest change of the temperature of the water and chemicals to how much you adgitate. At first your images will be terrible but as you keep at it, you will begin to home the craft.

 About a year ago I switch over and started shooting fully digital but the process and the mind set I have when create a photograph hasn't changed. When I  photograph I always think in a ways of film, So that when I'm processing my images I can get the most natural quality in my images. I had alittle fun with these images and I fell in love with the crazy colors all over again. These are what I call digital film and I know that I went alittle over board with the film emulation but I'm in love with the color.

White on white

On this day, I took a drive out to Santa Monica, Ca. With no intention or vision of what I wanted to photograph. When I arrived I took a strole down the board walk to the very end. As I a got closer to the end, the atmosphere changed. The fog became thicker and the pear became silent, all I can  hear was a man playing a accordion and people lounging enjoying the peaceful scene; kids playing with the birds and people fishing. It made me feel as if I was in another world.

As I was enjoying the moment ive noticed a fisherman with a white shirt. The colors caught my attention and I knew this subject matter would make for a nice photograph... I tried to train my eye to photograph only subjects that look like this, white on white with natural colors surrounding. My only wish is...I wish I walked out with more photographs.
