SPM Issue 8
As an avid Flickr user myself I have been admiring the work of fellow member canonsnapper for quite a while. His real name is Michael Summers and this month I was able to sit down with him to learn what makes him tick. Don’t miss Michael in this month’s Featured Photographer interview.
Vic Schmeltz has a bad case of GAS (gear acquisition syndrome), but that’s good for the rest ofus. This month he compares two very popular street cameras, the Fuji X E-2 and the Leica X Vario.
We take photo technology for granted today, easily switching between color and black and white or even between the unique characteristics of film types. But Brad Chippington, a young photographer from London, has taken it upon himself to try every type of 35mm film available and document his experience. In this issue he shares some of his work and thoughts about film in his “35mm Project.”
Henning Petterson, an avid street shooter from Norway, noticed a recurring theme in this photography. When looking through his portfolio he realized that he tends to shoot silhouettes. This sparked a new project that he shares with us in “Oslo Silhouettes.”
Los Angeles is a sprawling, busy, diverse and sometimes disturbing place. Contributor Daniel Cantagallo’s personal project is “Jim Rooster’s Field Diary” which he describes as a ‘lo-fi vision of a hi-fi age.’ He uses his mobile phone to capture his unique vision of this megalopolis.
Our newly renamed “Street Shooters of the Month” is back from the holidays and full of some excellent photos from our community. Our Flickr group continues to grow and we have a more difficult time each month to choose which ones to share with you.
