This is a great assemblage of photographs,
UserID. You have clearly dedicated yourself
and your craft to the unexpected unanticipated
moments of street photography. I am envious
of your skill. /Ralph
Thank you. "Pioneering" can well mean
getting by on the cruder side of things.
In photo, it can mean living with noise,
distortion, uncorrectable color lighting,
and much other stuff that some find to
be insufferable. I alway figger that if all
those flaws are what the viewer notices,
then the picture was never worth taking
in the first place
, a picture so worthless
that even if tech existed to eliminate all
the flaws and look "sparkling clean" and
geek-peeper perfect, the finished image
is a wholesomely perfect toadall bore.
Let the good times roll and let it all hang
out. Tech level "good enuf for rock and
roll" is all it takes to present an image of
anything actually interesting.
Would an affordable camera that could
banish all tech flaws, always render stuff
"picture perfect", appeal to me ? Sure, if
I needed to buy a new camera anyway.
But I hope to find and deliver scenes and
subjects strong enuf in themselves that
"ordinary" viewers are intrigued enuf to
never even notice tech aspects whether
compromised or perfected. Acoarst, by
"compromised" I don't mean "disastrous".
Even imperfection has to meet some sort
of minimum standards !
