Seattle Nights Revisited

April 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Deciding to shoot alone at night, in an unknown part of the city, without telling anybody, was not the smartest thing I’ve ever done. I don’t recommend it to anyone, even if you are one of those self-assured types. Things can and do happen to people who take dumb risks. Suffice it to say that I had an unpleasant encounter with someone who didn’t appreciate my uninvited company.

That said, night photography is a nice departure from your typical shooting experience. It’s a slow, methodical process that forces you to change your perception of exposure. As your shutter speed lengthens, photography starts to become something else entirely, outside of our snap-shot mentality. The scene in front of your lens isn’t so much captured as it is painted onto the camera sensor. Light takes on a new personality and yields interesting and often unexpected results. Shadows don’t appear where you anticipate them to be and sometimes disappear entirely. Objects in motion melt away as static elements burn their way into your camera’s memory. The resultant empty spaces in these images are, in essence, vacated by time.

Meanwhile in Hawaii…

December 31, 2010 Leave a comment

As much of the country celebrates what we in Hawaii can only imagine as a White Christmas (a polite euphemism), locals here despair and dig in for a dreary and unrelenting tropical winter. Light showers, morning cloud cover, and severe outbreaks of posterior perspiration (also referred to as ‘backsweat’) are just some of the unforgiving hardships that islanders endure everyday.

Merry Christmas...a**holes.

Why this tiny island chain is unjustly plagued with constant sunshine and an overabundance of tiki drinks, we may never fully understand. Perhaps it is only proof of Mother Nature’s unholy wrath.

Please send all your condolence letters and donations here.
