A Selection of My Writing
In 2010/2011, I ran a film-photography blog called The Photon Fantastic. I wrote the following series of articles as part of a larger, collaborative project called The Beginner's Guide to Film Photography, which I developed with Rachel Rebibo, a Paris-based fashion photographer. Rachel curates the wildly successful blog I Still Shoot Film. Her contributions to the guide may be found there.
- A Beginner's Guide to Lenses
- An Introduction to Metering
- Developing Black-and-White Film at Home: Introduction, Preparation, and Process
- The Economics of Film vs. Digital
- Why Film Matters
- An Introduction to Aperture
I've also written less technical, more philosophical, and much more opinionated articles about photography. They say I'm polarizing. Oh well.
I'm fascinated by the multitude of ways that photographers think and speak about their art. To my mind, photography is a very slippery thing and it takes a lot of thinking to penetrate the surface of what it is. Here's a (growing) collection of thoughts on photography by great practitioners and critics.
