In this week’s podcast, the changing of the seasons from summer to fall has me thinking about how the change of seasons causes a shift in my photographic practice. As I looked back at my photographic process, I have learned that the limited light and gray of the Pacific Northwest has me hole up in the darkroom in the winter more than I spend time out shooting. Recognizing this, I have shifted what I do in the summer and fall to be better prepared to take advantage of the darker days of winter. After some R&D this summer, I am ready to really focus on printing a number of projects this winter.
In anticipation of printing this winter also lead me to think about how printing my images can help me think more and more about the indented audience, printing substrates and the final look and feel of a project.
