  • I was just watching Citizen Kane with the voice over commentary by Peter Bogdanovich and was struck by an anecdote about the Director of Photography, Gregg Toland. Toland was, according to Bodanovich, widely considered to be the best cameraman in Hollywood at the time. Orson Welles had never made a film before. Welles didn’t know that the DP was responsible for setting up the lighting and started doing it himself. Toland just followed him around and observed what he was doing. When Welles eventually found out and asked why, Toland told him that he learned so much working with newcomers because they didn’t know what they couldn’t do. That reminded me of this link from mavina’s website to a quote from Ira Glass about how it typically takes a lot of practice before one’s skills catch up with one’s tastes.

    Seems to me those two quotes end up at the same place coming from totally different directions. The important point both make, I think, is that it’s important to do a lot of work before you know what you can’t do. Going a bit further, I like to think that while it’s important to gradually fill a box with all of the things you’ve figured out you can’t do, it’s equally important to never get to a place where you feel you know all the things you can’t do. I think for the best it’s a constant pushing at those boundaries.

    Thinking of things like this as I finally bear down and get my digital archive in order. I’ve been going through every photo I’ve taken since I got my first digital camera in 2004. I’d done a lot of work with film in the three years previous. I went through all that last time I was in my Mom’s basement and found next to nothing worthwhile. The early digital work is very sparse in terms of quality as well. But I can see and remember myself trying so many things that I didn’t know wouldn’t work. Most of them didn’t, but in many cases I see things I learned from those failed experiments manifesting themselves across the years. I think Glass has it right about keeping at it, and that’s something David constantly reiterates as well.

  • Oh, and by the way, since I’m posting my ramblings on the contest thread, did I win? If so, when can I pick up my bag? Was it the Cat in the Hat reference or the other Cat in the Hat reference that won it? Or the Wasilla joke? Or do you just average multiple submissions?

  • Yes MW let’s post comments here :)…

    To see as a photographer sees: Mikhael Subotzky at TEDxStellenbosch

  • I spent most of the afternoon “fighting” a print in the darkroom, my fault I didn’t take the photo properly. I just couldn’t manage it, lack of experience and also a lack of love for the darkroom helped me fail dismally. I scanned the image into photoshop and with a little bit of patience managed to get a very decent image. First time I’ve ever preferred a digital BW print in photoshop than a wet print…
