Living In The (Photographic) Moment

Y Bells, Chicago IL 2009 © jwl

This is another image from my (short) trip to Chicago last weekend. After about a year of having my little pocket gun with me 80% of the time, I am just coming to grips with what an essential piece of equipment it is. Looking around my studio and on my blog, it seems that a good amount of my new work was made with this camera. Every machine has limits, but if we learn to work within the limits, we can use them all to our advantage.

For images made with this particualar camera, I seem to have relished in the immediacy and whimsy of the moments in which I make the images. That is precisely why I bought the camera, to try and think a little less and shoot a little more.
