BIOGRAPHY
I've been a casual photographer for years and am getting a bit more serious about it. At 65, I figure it's something I will be able to pursue while physical limitations force me grudgingly to back off from more strenuous pursuits. I respect the folks who delve into the deep technical side of photography but that's not me. will never get overly technical. My focus is simply on the image. Although I've made good progress in the two years since I dived in to DSLR photography, I'm still something of a novice in terms of camera technique (and make more than my share of stupid mistakes.) I've made slow progress in my post-processing but generally play it very conservatively. I'm not averse to 'dodging/burning' enhancement--although my skills in that area are still limited--and have even been known to delete distracting elements in a photo but I have no interest in composite images. I greatly admire a lot of the work I've seen on this site. In comparison with the masters here, it occurs to me that what I'm doing is "folk photography". In any case, I'm glad for the chance to post some stuff I've done that I like. [PORTRAIT BY CLARA HOLLANDER] Addendum A friend asked me why I find photography so engaging my response was "I’ve given this question a fair amount of thought over the past year or so–particularly as I’ve committed increasing amounts of time and money to photography. It’s familiar territory in a way: over the years I’ve pondered the same question in relation to fishing–my other time- and money-absorbing enthusiasm–and I think these activities engage me for similar reasons. One of the attractions of fishing is that it gives me an excuse to visit some of the most beautiful places on earth. Photography allows me to capture that beauty–so I can share it, certainly, but also as a way of confirming that beauty to myself. Perhaps at a deeper level, the camera and fly-rod are instruments which focus my attention and enable me to see and understand the world in ways which would otherwise escape me. With the fly-rod in hand, I don’t just see the stream, I am moved to understand its dynamics and ecology. With camera in hand, I see light and objects in ways I wouldn’t otherwise. In both cases, I’ve come to understand surprising and wonderful things–just by paying attention. But, beyond the learning, I think the fly-rod and camera represent ways of establishing a somehow more meaningful relationship with the world around me."
