On Lafayette Street
Training the eye to see in frames, in composition is something that I guess I take for granted. I don't know how I started to see in frames or even when I did. It is an ever ongoing process. My eyes, my vision is always searching for new ways to see and capture things. I could say that it is rather an automatic process. Like a runner, running. That said, not all days are equal. Some are certainly better than others. I like to call it synchronicity when I find myself in the right place at the right time. And maybe it's also called making my luck. For that reason it is good to be patient and to move slowly and attempt to really soak in my surroundings. In my workshops we always look at different ways to see things and different ways to compose a shot. Composition is typically the thing that will make or break a shot. The aspect that will give it a lasting effect. - On Lafayette Street, 9 April 2017.
