Taking More Pictures Again

Escape

Escape” by Jason Cole­man – I’ve recent­ly got­ten excit­ed (re-excit­ed?) about pho­tog­ra­phy and learn­ing how to take bet­ter pic­tures. Kevin has a great post and some inter­est­ing dis­cus­sion on his blog about his film vs. dig­i­tal exper­i­men­ta­tion. I think, for me, one of the key rea­son why I only want to shoot in dig­i­tal, regard­less of qual­i­ty, is the abil­i­ty to let myself make many mis­takes to learn from. Were my cam­era a film, it would sit most­ly on a shelf for fear of tak­ing bad pho­tos. I nev­er had much appre­ci­a­tion for pho­tog­ra­phy until dig­i­tal allowed me to exper­i­ment with it. I nev­er had that feel­ing with film which no mat­ter how sim­ple the cam­era, always gave me too great a dis­con­nect between action and feed­back to mean­ing­ful­ly learn any­thing.
