Listening


Sometimes when I photograph events I use them to document more than the event itself. I look for little slices of life that might — I emphasize that — tell me something about the people who are taking part in the vent, or the location or just something about the parade, or second line, or… whatever.Continue reading “Listening”

And, One More…


This is it for Uncle Lionel’s second line parade. The material is getting to be a week old. Hopefully, I’ll make a few good pictures at his jazz funeral and last parade, tomorrow.  And, if all goes well,  I’ll be efficient in post production. If all that works, I’ll post something on the same dayContinue reading “And, One More…”

Learning


Here’s a lesson for anyone who wants to make a portrait of somebody whom you don’t know. But, first a little about how I like to work. I don’t hide. I don’t make sneaky photographs. If I can, I ask if I can make a picture rather than just take it. That doesn’t always happenContinue reading “Learning”

Uncle Lionel


A massive second line parade for Uncle Lionel Batiste rambled through Treme yesterday evening.  As with all things New Orleans, the parade was supposed to start at 5p, but it started a little late. When it finally began to roll a pack of photographers descended on Norman Batiste, Lionel’s brother. Obviously, if you look atContinue reading “Uncle Lionel”

Despite its bad reputation, there is a huge population of people who have lived in Central City, New Orleans, for most of their lives. They, too are worried about the violent crime and what will become of them if Ventral City is actually turned around as many folks are hoping and planning. This is oneContinue reading “Living There”

On The Bund


A few years ago I happened to find myself in Shanghai, China. Find myself? You ask… Okay, I took a plane and a train.  I traveled there to photograph the city. Anyway… I got up early one morning to photograph rush hour and I made my way to The Bund, where I made this pictureContinue reading “On The Bund”

Too Many Pictures


I never thought that I would say this, but for the month of April I made too many pictures. As I was starting to “curate” — old guys like me call it edit — my April picture a day project, I realized that I made way more images than I needed for the 30 dayContinue reading “Too Many Pictures”

Experiments in Portrature


I did a little consulting yesterday. That is to say, I had somebody give me a little advice, not the other way around. Even though I’ve been told this before, I haven’t done that much with it. But, the verdict is this. If I want to make move to a much bigger audience, I reallyContinue reading “Experiments in Portrature”
