I began my transition to digital imaging when introduced to Pedro Meyer‘s work. A decade later I began the change from film. I bought my first digital camera in 2001. Slow and steady. I stopped using film altogether in the first half of 2005. Photography for me has always been about making images – pressing the shutter. I feel no differently about pressing the shutter in 2008 than I did in 1964. For me digital imaging is no different from film based photography. The skill set is the same. The craft – that’s a different matter.
GRINZ (GROUP OF REMARKABLE IMAGEMAKERS OF NEW ZEALAND) the New Zealand photography newsletter published weekly – on Sunday evening – has had a make over. The Wellington based, nine year old, web newsletter publication now sports a pleasing contemporary look. To subscribe go to GRINZ. It’s that easy.
Interesting if somewhat academic.
