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.

    Samuel:
    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."

    Umm...okay.

    "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...
