b craw's recent activity

  • Say what you will, but Holgas are a mainstay in my film photo classes (particularly b/w)- and will continue to be so long as they are available. In a current environment of such technical...

  • It seems quite appropriate to question where creative authorship exists when speaking of such images. And in doing so we are defining a working boundary relating to an activity intended to...

  • Any fair-minded criticism of the 'pro' accounts put aside, I think you are oversimplifying circumstance and not acknowledging potential rewards in participating on a shared platform - this one, in...

  • Commented on Readers' Showcase: Dale Johnson article

    The authenticity of that member's work was called into question due to the following:

  • I apologize about the awkwardness of my wording^. My point is that Flickr is still a pretty deep reservoir of talent; and it endures as a means of accessing interesting veins within the medium of...

  • To contrast the academic even temper demanded of teaching photography at the university level, in 2009 I founded two groups on Flickr that afforded me the chance to feature a broad range of...

  • Skytripper:
    Yes, it was a silly comment; I'm 96% certain that it was a joke.

  • Ichiro:
    No apology necessary. I was just clarifying that I was only speaking about looks.

    I apologize. I was being a bit snarky. I'm sure your hands are quite capable.

  • "It’s too tall for its width to really look good. Too many protrusions too, and the top plate isn’t flat."


    "Bizarre" trouble getting horizons level?

    Do you have normal human hands?

  • And thus Marty enters the dialog to provide a balanced and healthy bit of perspective. Good form.

    For those just utterly perplexed by the gargantuan size of the GX8, do note that each body comes...

  • Fair enough that you don't like 'retro'. Having admittedly not held this camera, it does look decently ergonomic. And as rangefinders go, 'retro' needn't be thought of as a triumph of style over...

  • Nice dialog guys, but I meant it 'looks a bit like' in the literal sense - appearance.

  • Well there was the Panasonic LC1 in 2004.

  • Looks a bit like the love child of a Leica Digilux 2 and a Samsung NX500. Pretty.

  • Photography is a popular medium; its applications and aesthetics are subject to a wide range of individual preferences. Given this reality, much of the photography we see will not jive with any set...

  • Does it not seem fitting that a 17 y/o making such images garners such attention? It makes sense to me. Frankly, it is difficult to distinguish oneself within an ilk of landscape photography heavy...

  • Raiatea, your commitment to craft is plainly evident; an impressive breadth of experimentation with technical processes at just two years into the media.

    While your formal strategies are largely...

    And were a person with less means perception and less control of craft behind all that equipment, the results would be predictably less compelling.

  • Commented on Readers' Showcase: Martin Kozak article

    Generally here, the sport tends to be a building block in a larger formalism. And, in this way, the images seem to be less about documenting activity than constructing visual form. What shouldn't...

  • Papi61, do you ever stop with the sloppy inflammatory rhetoric? I think a greater 'exercise of futility' might be in convincing most here of your ability to present a coherent argument, given your...
