Lens relationships: fascinating! No matter how digital/technical/cyber image has become, your performance either in front or behind the lens MUST be entirely instinctive for the otherworldly to appear! It’s complete bullshit saying ‘in today’s age everyone can take a good photo’. I see and experience this daily. Even technology cannot take our gut away. It’s there or it ain’t.
Sometimes I capture moments after thinking “I MUST capture this!”and then the image fails me; fails the moment. Other times the subject or setting presents itself and my eyes tell me ‘this is mediocre’ and once I press the button the image exceeds my wildest expectations.
Is image real? At all?
