A quick update and a photo
And something I'm thinking about right now
I am very glad to see people have been subscribing to my substack following the recommandation by Ramon. Thank you and welcome everyone !
Right now, I’m thinking about something I’ve been facing since I first began photography with a DSLR in 2007.
The aestethics of the digital image are nothing like the film I grew up with, but it has its own qualities. For years, I have seen people trying to avoid the “digital look” when at some point I decided to embrace it and just go with it. Why ?
I don’t want my images to have a specific look that can be replicated with a LUT or a Lightroom preset, I want them to look like what they really are, and be aesthetically honest.
For some time, I have been showing almost only black and white versions of my digital photo. The problem is that it can be difficult to stand out with neutral-looking digital images in an internet crowd of catchy colors, beautiful contrasty black and white and so on. But I decided it was enough, even if it is is sometimes difficult to draw attention to the ambiguous, the small, the unspectacular.
This is a photo I took last week.
Thank you all, more soon !
