Photogs / Photo ExhibitsThis is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."
An 8x10 color still life photo of mine is one of 40 photos selected for a gallery show. This is one of those weird shots that existed in my head -- why? I have no idea. All I know is when it was in my head I made a quick sketch of it, then gathered the items for it and shot it. The colors are much more saturated on the transparency.
