Comment on Leica M60 + 35mm Summilux Release by Duane Pandorf Duane Pandorf Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:46:55 +0000 When I read about the rumors that Leica may introduce a digital M without the LCD I too agreed with most that wondered who would buy such a camera. I hadn’t paid much attention to what’s been happening this past week at Photokina as I’m quite happy with my gear.

But then I happened to watch part of an interview with Stefan Daniel where he’s discussing this new camera. When he talked about how “chimping” becomes an interruption while photographing and how he too was afflicted by the “disease”, this camera makes sense. All of the essentials are there. You just have to wait until you get “home” to download your images to your computer to see how well you’ve done for the day’s shooting.

I think this camera would improve my photography in that it would force me to get back to the real basics to photography. Yes, I could tape over my current camera’s LCD but I still need to see the display if I wanted to change my ISO. Sure I could use the Auto ISO function. But that’s not the same.

I’m sure Leica will sell all 600 of these and they probably already have. But it would be cool if they “mass” produced a version for the rest of us.

Comment on Do what you Love: Pierre Halimi Lacharlotte by Michael J Locke Michael J Locke Sat, 06 Sep 2014 03:51:23 +0000 Hi Adam,

I am good thanks.

This could be a good discussion, I need to expand on my previous post.

I understand and agree with Pierre’s comments about needing to understand what Journe did and where he wanted to go, Pierre had already felt and seen the passion from Journe, but needed more so he could truly represent him. This is definately something I am working on for myself & Stephen Bartels Gallery . Why do I create photographic images, what is my body of work about, where am I going with my work and who am I as a photographer.

The reluctance from me to explain a ‘Single Image’ comes from when I see a photograph, where the photographer has tried to justify it by writing loads of text to explain its content to the viewer. I feel, Who,What,Where,Why & When should be sufficient.
Its a bit like when I listen to a pop song which has a video, where the video is far far better than the song.

I think that having a good honest discussion around your work is very rewarding, but adding text to explain it, can at times leave a viewer confused as they do not see it. Where letting them view and form their interpretation can add to their experience. Or, I guess become totally confused.

The article and your comments have certainly made me think and consider more the whole subject of how I communicate my work.



Comment on Do what you Love: Pierre Halimi Lacharlotte by adam adam Thu, 04 Sep 2014 14:56:13 +0000 Hi Michael,

How have you been?

Glad to hear you enjoyed the interview…as you can see I really enjoy my time with Pierre and his candid responses. It is something that can be hard to come by.

He also pointed to a very interesting idea…if the artist does not explain it, someone will and god knows what they will say. Best to hear it from the artist mouth.

Do you feel like this might change how you talk about your work? And what about everyone else, do you explain your work?
