Over the years I found myself gravitated towards taking art style photo of buildings and their details. Doors, roofs, old, new, and ancient. I didn’t start out looking for subject mater. I just found I like these 3D objects we live and work in. I should thank old friends who are architects and my sculpture professors.
Now I’ve decided to use a cool crowdfunding platform called Patreon. My main goal is to help fund the cost of film, development, processing, printing, and finishing. Maybe more in the future. But right now if you can donate a few bucks a month it will really help.
Head on over to patreon.com/brianr and watch my welcome video and read my project statement. Thanks!
Thank you copyright holders for allowing all these fine works to be on Youtube. Without these videos freely available young people, who where not alive when these films where originally released, could not learn from the masters.
Sometimes you happen on a piece of art that really affects you. This amazing picture has a juxtaposition and poses that really does it for me.
Earlier in the day I was thinking about heroism. Mostly I feel it’s a human construct used to describe people’s actions. But all to often people are put on pedestals and called “HEROES!”. That really bugs me. But for some reason I find these two women real heroins. They are Sheros of the first order.
In college I spent a lot of time shooting 16mm motion picture film and still 35mm film. Mostly for documenting the art I was making. Recently I’ve been developing my own black and white negatives. (Thanks for being a good teacher Holden.) Plus taking advantage of the great local color film development at South Eastern Camera in Carrboro. Digital cameras are part of my arsenal too.
