As Lori and I put some finishing touches on my darkroom studio after 15 months, I got to thinking about how important the notion of space is when we are working photographers. Not just our physical space where we do our creative work from the darkroom to the computer, but also other types of space. The idea of getting our creative space established when we start to work to the use of space in the photograph to create relationships and build in our framing and compositions and finally thinking about personal space.

While the darkroom has come together nicely this weekend, there are still a lot of thoughts about the use of space in the creative process of photography. I am sure that just like the with my darkroom there will be many more organizational efforts to keep myself as creative, organized and thoughtful as possible.

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Has digital really changed photography that much?

Normally when I get asked about film and digital, I talk about the darkroom days being less and less easy to find, changes in media, or how the industry has shifted. I might tell a story about how I used to work versus how I work today. This time I had a very quick response that could have been seen as tongue in cheek, but in the end, it seemed to be an answer that really resonated in the conversation. After all, a story is a story, and light is light.

This week’s podcast talks about my answer to this wonderful question and how I have evolved over time as a photographer to land on what I think is a great way to think about how we all deal with changes in the photographic industry.
