Frank Jackson on Street Photography I am happy and excited to announce a new RFF forum on Street Photography mentored by Frank Jackson, one of the best producers of analog B/W prints I have ever seen. His shows include the Open Shutter Gallery, Heriard-Cimino Gallery, and Ogden Museum of Southern Art. His images are in the collections of Smithsonian Ogden Museum of Southern Art, California Afro American Museum and Xavier University New Orleans LA. He has worked for or has been featured with Visa Card, Xerox, UCLA, Eric Owen Moss, Architect, Hasselblad Forum (cover),Gordon Parks, Muhammed Ali, Million Man March Wash. DC, Lionel Hampton, jazz legion photographer , 1995-2002, Stevie Wonder, B+W Magazine (British version) twice, Rangefinder Magazine, Dahon Bicycles, Arelli Wheels, Real Product Design, Automobile Club of Southern California. Frank's online images are at fotographz.500px.com and fotographzfrankjackson.tumblr.com . "While on this diverse photographic journey…I have to say during this whole time my love for fine art black and white photography kept growing. I always found time to shoot in different cities and my own personal work…this has sustained me through some very tough times. As of 2012, with the help of a very good friend I maintain a state-of-the-art dream darkroom. The darkroom helps greatly in the on-going practice of understanding “the light”, being able to process film and print drives me to keep my digital photography “organic”. I’m curious visually and shooting what’s, what on the street feeds this curiosity. Everyday I walk out my front door to “see” the world with a digital camera, a film camera, the “cup” and an open mind (mostly).

5 like these in one day? I like them all but 1, 3 and 4 are excellent.
I would be happy to have 5 images in this class in a year.

I figured you guys would still have snow on the ground...wow! You have some nice shots Dan.

Wondering about the 2nd photo of the older lady. Did you ask to take her photo or not? By her expression I'd be inclined to say you didn't but just wondering. It's an interesting expression she has.

Thanks for the feedback. Number 3 was an interesting moment -- I chose my spot, and as the man walked into frame I had to wait for the right moment -- he was walking fairly quickly, so it was nerve wracking. I was incredibly lucky that he was carrying two perfect bags. The lady in shot two, I didn't ask permission - asking ruins the moment. A minute later a car came speeding by and I put out my arm to prevent her from getting hit -- she thanked me and I have a photo of her a moment after giving me a smile. I don't know her story, but she's pretty fashionable -- perhaps she worked in the clothing biz -- we were on Fashion (7th) Avenue in NYC...

The old lady in #2 was just striking. I mean, they all have something but that one sticks with me.
What are you shooting to get square format? Assuming a Mamiya 6?

Like the others, I think #3 is excellent. Just very good spacing and timing.

Rolleiflex 2.8f -- Originally wanted to throw myself a curve ball -- something other than 35mm format, and something that would be a challenge. I like the location of controls, and the ability to shoot in sun and still get the background soft. Also like the feel of 120 in my hands when I load it onto stainless reels, and the large neg for scanning...
