High ISO settings in todays digital cameras not only bring back unseen light, but have the ability to create an artistic approach unlike any thing else I have ever used. Long exposures on a tripod could create such effects if your subject was unmoving, here I was able to walk the beach, in nearly complete darkness, and still frame up a few images using the lights of the skyline to set my manual focus…experiment, push the limits and you might surprise yourself!
There are post that are timely and those that are not. Simple fact of life. Photography. I want to open a discussion that is valuable to everyone. The idea of a moment; moments witness and those we create. No matter the venue, no matter the culture, we perceive, create and effect.
As photographers, photojournalist; we will ultimately represent the scene. No matter how much we choose to involve ourselves-we play witness.
A shutter captures the moment, our presence interprets history.
I chose these images because they reflect both sides of an intricate and interesting small town tradition.
Durango is filled with characters of all background, but perhaps their is no match to that which the residents exude every winter in during the annual Snowdown celebrations in the heart of this historic mountain town…
A couple images shot through the window of Evangelos nightclub, down a side street running along the historic Santa Fe plaza. Very often, the best things are found just around the corner..in both life and photography!
