We spent an afternoon at Arcosanti, Paolo Soleri’s Urban Laboratory. They had a wonderful path that allowed me to test the pinhole range and estimate the distance. I wanted to do this because when I tried it before I was way off in my range estimates. I got exactly what I needed, and a nice image of their sign:
I plan on going back for Pinhole Day and capturing some interior photos.
I thought about starting this Series when I heard that “Mountain Light’, Galen & Barbara Rowell’s Gallery, was closed, and that was my first post. Reading his books was a turning point in my use of E-6 films. I wanted to start acknowledging the Photographers that have influenced me and what about them I find Inspiring.
So I thought of lots of “Famous” Photographers”, some of whom I’ve actually met, and put them on my ‘to do list’. But Lately I’ve realized that my ‘colleagues’ (people that are amongst the best but not famous yet?) are perhaps MORE inspiring. People whose Blogs and Tweets I care to follow must mean something to me, right?
Unfortunately, some of those who Inspired me, Like Galen Rowell, have passed on. Their websites may no longer exist. But I will share with you wrk that I never would have tried without their Inspiration.
So, If I’m following you, especially if we communicate a lot, you may see yourself here.
