Blog Post One

April 03, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I’ve been pondering giving this blog thing a go for quite sometime now but I wasn’t sure if I was a skilled enough wordsmith or if I even had it in me to discuss photography at all in a public sphere. It’s one thing to have a website of your work and a whole other realm talking about it and whatever topic I feel I should share.

So, after a bit of thought and reflecting I will try to summarize what the intent of my blog will be and what it will not be (although, like life in general, these so-called parameters will probably change at any time).

What I hope to do is discuss my photography: why I photograph, why I chose a certain subject to photograph, the objectives of my work, some of the technical aspects of my post production, how I will intend to print it. I will say up front that the photographic print is a passion of mine, it is the ultimate end medium of expression and, in this day and age of digital sharing and oversaturation, I strongly feel the craft of the print needs to be respected and preserved. But I am not a luddite and appreciate the internet as a form of sharing one’s work, which should be obvious with this website. I also will discuss the work of other photographers and artists, those who have influenced me and why. Things in life that inspire me be it music, food, people in my life and even outside, the puddle outside my apartment entrance. I may do a book review here and there as I am building a small collection of photography books. 

What I do not intend to do is pixel peep and review gear in much detail. I love my camera gear as much as the next person, I may over obsess over wants vs. needs but, in the end, it’s the final image that counts, the message it conveys, the emotional response that it pulls from the viewer. 

So, thanks so much to take the time to have a read, I am not sure where this is going to go (especially considering the number of photoblogs out there and continue to populate the web), but here’s a clink of the glass to a new adventure.

Cheers!

Darren
