hard Reset and Surrendering to my Love of Film

If you’ve read my last few posts, you know I’ve been incredibly indecisive about whether or not stick with digital or go back to film. You might even be wondering why not do both? The fact is, I want to maintain a consistency in my photographic work. Shooting both digital

Digital or film?

In my last post, I talked about the decision I had to make concerning whether or not to keep my Fujifilm X-H1 and continue shooting digital, or return the X-H1 and go completely 35mm film. The Fujifilm X-H1 is gone. As great as the Fujifilm was, and as much as

No means no

I recently watched a few YouTube videos from a London-based street photographer. When he encounters people on the street who say “No” to being photographed, he argues with them and tries to pull out every trick in the book in order to get the shot, including photographing them anyway, citing

While looking through my catalogue of photos, I realize that almost every single one of them suck. What I mean is, I don’t like them much at all. I’m including the one photo above that I like out of all of them, and even it is not that great in

What Camera Should You Get?

I spent some time reading a forum post tonight in which several photographers were arguing about whether or not one camera was “good” for street photography.

Watching the photosphere

I thought I would highlight a few YouTube channels from street photographers that you might find interesting as well.
