Film Is Not Dead

Not wind, not rain, not even a case of crazy-awful-knock-me-flat-on-my-back food poisoning kept me from enjoying my FIND experience. Even with everything that went wrong with me during the week…I came away from the FIND workshop with a renewed passion for this art form we call photography.

Why do pictures speak to us? Why are we photographers? One of my favorite quotes is by a fellow photographer, Ansel Adams. Mr. Adams said “Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera. A oneness with your world is your film. Your bright eyes and easy smile is your museum.” We all see the world a certain way…and we as photographers, we are lucky and blessed enough to be able to share what we see with others. Jon’s passion for how he sees the world is infectious and inspiring. He breathes life into his work. I hope someday I can be that kind of photographer too.
