The other week I took to the streets of Newport, RI with a 50mm lens. The following images are scenes I captured throughout the day with no particular plan, intention, or subject. Many of my photowalks I consider to be improvisational exercises that help me notice beauty and meaning in the everyday, ordinary world.
Having used a 35 mm lens for the majority of my photography, having documented this small town that is Bristol, RI with an ultra wide lens for story telling experimentation, and having still the fifty- nifty go-to staple lens by my side, it would be a shame not to share the images taken with this lens which has produced some of my favourite photos.
Happy New Years everyone!
To start off 2021 I thought it’d be a good idea to address everyone who follows my blog and latest posts.
The other week I took to the streets of downtown Bristol after dark with my camera and trusty tripod. Taking photos at night is a much more technical process than day photography, but I found it to be a great learning experience and I enjoyed it immensely nonetheless.
One of my favourite photography exercises is going somewhere you’ve been many times before and trying to find shots you haven’t taken. I find there’s always something new to shoot if you consciously look for it.
My favourite time to do this is right before golden hour so that I can follow the light as it shifts and casts shadows on potential subjects.
