Daido Moriyama and the Ricoh GR

Posted on August 24, 2011

Most of you also probably know my favorite street photographer is Daido Moriyama. Shooting with a camera like the Ricoh brings me into a place of that inspiration. I feel like I’m making pictures that smell of the city. There is an aesthetic stench to the grit and grain. I love it. Josh White

The humanity of street shooting

Posted on August 23, 2011

To me… the kind of street shooting that I love has nothing to do with the street… it has everything to do with the moment that the souls of two stranger’s souls collide. There is some ‘magic’ and incredible beauty in that moment.Those moments produce images that invite the viewer to ponder and linger… those moments invite the viewer in to write their own version of the story. As a street shooter, those are the moments I’m always hunting for. Viewminder

On Portrait Photography

Posted on June 15, 2011

Portrait photography is high production with the one aim to get one image that looks great. With a living specie in front of the camera it’s a lottery, and the aim is to get your timing right – shooting when the subject looks right and rest in him- or herself. You are not waiting for focus to be right but the person to look right. Thorsten Overgaard
