“As photographers we must do our work without fear of acceptance or rejection by others or by ourselves. We do our work because we must. We don’t define our work, it defines us. It makes us who we are and shows us the way to become who and what we strive to be.” dms
The magic of photography grabbed me at the age of 13. At 14, I already had a darkroom setup. Since then, it has been my life's work. I say work because it is a struggle in many ways but it's a chosen struggle. Now that I am older, I heed the call of my younger shooter friends. Helping and teaching is a shared responsibility but with age comes patience. With patience comes the release of knowledge. With knowledge comes the freedom to create and develop a lust for photography. Gido asked me to write some stuff about me and if I'm writing about photography, it is me.
It is said that shooters should try to see as if seeing something for the first time. I'd rather see something as if I'm seeing it for the last time. Go in peace but go with a camera in your hand.

Do You Realize?? Do You Realize??

street shooter:There are photos that support the 3 dimensional reality. There are photos that rely on that reality. Then there are photos that exist as a mark in time and space where the shooter is at one with the here and now and is aware of the making of a new reality. This is one of those times.

street shooter:Perhaps there are those amongst us that will say this is not a street photo. I beg to differ. Who is to say what the guidelines are for a photo to be a street photo?
Here is a prime example of a shooter pushing the envelope and making a fine image with a strong emotional impact. Not only does our shooter push the envelope but also draws us into that and shows that if one maintains an open eye, heart and mind, the most beautiful of images are there to find.

 
 

 

 

Special Mentions

street shooter
street shooter: What a great photo. I can't express how much this image moves me. At first I thought that maybe because I have kids and grandkids. Then I thought the B&W is lovely. Then as I gaze my eyes upon this once again, I FELT the photo and for a brief moment of time, I saw that there still exist beauty in the world. I stand in awe of this photo and I say, thank you to the shooter for reminding me that beauty still exist.

 
 

 
street shooter
street shooter: I often wonder if the person in a photo is aware of the juxtaposition that the shooter sees and captures. Then I wonder if the shooter is aware that the juxtaposing forces are aware of being made into a photo. There are those shooters that are obviously aware of the force of photographic nature. The maker here is. Ya know, I don't like titles on photos that are descriptive and I feel photos should talk without words. Here the shooter titled perfectly, and that is an art by itself.

street shooter: What words to say? How do I express myself when viewing this photo? Surely there must be a way to get out of me what I see, think and feel about this image.
Try as I might, I can't summon up the words that this image so elegantly and deliciously and properly expresses itself.

Sorry my friends, just look at this and breathe in it's perfection. Now ya know how I feel.

 
 

 

Congratulations Andrea Ratto!

Connected
street shooter
street shooter: There were so many photos that were worthy of special mention. I felt like as a selfie, this exceeds what most others fail at. The inclusion of the man was very smart idea. I kinda feel like there in a connected disconnected energy. They both are the subjects together and both hold witness to the shared moment. The there is the perfect framing and believe me, that is crucial. Don't believe m, ask this shooter.

 
 

 

Congratulations Moreno Cani!
Attention!

Attention!

street shooter: I chuckle every time I see this. It's like the perfect example of how people are so interested in their selves and the locked in world of the CELL phone etc. And then those with them, feeling ignored.
Photographically, another disciplined shooter that is so aware of the existence of the frame. The perfect juxtaposition. The awareness of the process of photography and how it translates a 3 dimensional reality to make a new 2 dimensional reality is most important.
This is a great street shot but much more, a great photo. Kudos my friend
