Informal portrait of Dan Burkholder at a workshop on alternative photo processes before COVID forced him to move classes to the internet. Dan is a well known lecturer, teacher, author of several books on photography processes, and master printer. I have attended several of his workshops and enjoyed them all. I look forward to the time things return to normal and I can join him for another class.

We had a storm come through here Christmas Eve night, wind gusts up to seventy miles an hour. Even so, there were a few leaves clinging to this tree.

Greeted at the door wearing a face mask with hand sanitizer. It’s hard to feel welcome. This is Rhinebeck, New York today, streets blocked to make space for merchants to bring their goods outdoors and restaurant tables out on the sidewalks.

No parades this year, but a lovely afternoon to be outside and maybe wet a line in a nearby creek.

I hope you are all well.

When you hear voices*

When you hear voices what do they say?

 

Do you listen or not?

Are they whispers or shouts?

Are they questions or answers?

When you hear voices what do they say?

Social Distance

Black And White Photography, Photography, Steven

Louis at six feet

This portrait was made before my group of friends adapted to the concept of “social distancing”. It was just happenstance that Louis was sitting a bit more than the accepted six feet away from me. At that distance the 25mm (50mm equivalent) was the perfect portrait lens, and at f2.0 the background was thrown suitably out of focus to isolate the subject.

Since this image was made the group has had to forego our regular Friday night meetings. Damn virus.
