Photography requires inspiration, time, technique and some equipment. Below are some of them.
I use a lot of Nikon stuff, film and digital, older and modern lenses. My black & white images are mostly done on film, but some are done digitally and then converted. I like the intimacy that my old film body with a 50mm lens brings. People open up and care less about being photographed than with a larger digital camera and bigger lenses. It also perfectly prevents me from looking at the display after each shot to see whether it worked. I focus more on seeing and shooting well that way.
My landscape work is done almost always with a big sturdy tripod, digital cameras and whatever lens feels right for the subject. I do get up before first light a lot, though.
A young worker is taking five high up in the steel scaffold on a high way construction. The early morning sun casts a nice light on him. The steel rods and his clothes are the same color, the only break is the yellow helmet.
He looks lost, deep in thought, maybe wondering how much more construction there will be in his lifetime.Tags:
