a news photographer's non news diary

Perplexed by the complex

The instant visual feed back provided by digital photography meant ever more options; options to be considered and developed. The mind may operate at lightning speeds, but the physical world we inhabit, has a different pace. This was, in part, a large element for me in the tension digital photography brought to my work place. For others it was a liberation.

I looked at how light was rendered in my camera as a fairly elastic thing. The arrival of digital photography introduced a more brittle or fragile creative process into my photography for some time.

I love this photographers take on the digital and film tension. I loathe to say film versus digital, as far as I’m concerned there is no versus. They are two different mediums.

Talking about work arounds, I’ve started to shoot personal stuff with film now, and it’s a re-education, but it’s fun.
