Frustration:

A well produced/Photoshopped photograph still needs something else to distinguish it from the photo taken on the run by someone using their first iPhone……

This pic was taken early in the afternoon and Photoshopped to look like it was taken at night.

Yeah I know, another cat photo.

Well this cat, unlike most, never sits still for a photo.  I finally caught her though.  Fuji X-Pro1, 23mm f1.4 shot at 1/60, f 1.4 ISO 1000.

James Nachtwey shot

One of the world’s leading war photographers, James Nachtwey was shot while covering protests in Thailand.  Fortunately, he was only grazed.  You can read the story here.  If you’re not familiar with Nachtwey, you need to watch the movie about him, War Photographer.  He has won the Capa award multiple times and has dedicated his life to informing the world about the horrors of war.

Saturday at the DMA

Took the new Fujifilm X-Pro1 to the Dallas Museum of Art on Saturday.  I have to admit it was fun shooting with a rangefinder style camera again.  There is just something more intimate, more personal shooting with one as opposed to a DSLR.  Some images…

A gift for the Dallas

Having lived here the majority of my life, and having benefited from all that Dallas has to offer, I thought it would be nice to give back with a gift to the city.  So on Wednesday, Feb 26th, I’m presenting this image (see below) to the City Council.  The print is 40 by 74 inches, too big to hang in my house but hopefully they’ll find a nice spot for it at City Hall.

Butt is it Art?

Dallas Morning News photographer Guy Reynolds proved it is.  The Arts and Life section in Monday’s paper (January 6, 2014) led off with Guy’s photo essay of cigarette butts found on the street.  While I’m not a fan of using a phone as a camera, Guy did a masterful job with his iPhone.  Check it out at here.
