Today, I was over at Looking Glass Photo in Berkely, California, watching a presentation on Street Photography by Valerie Jardin. It was quite inspirational as she talked about her approach from pre-visualization to the snapping of the photograph, in the decisive moment. She stressed, setting up all of your settings like black and white or color, JPG, focal length, prior to shooting so as to ‘get the photo in camera’ — not much post-processing is needed. She shoots primarily with the Fujifilm X100F w 23mm lens and the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 w 35mm f/2.0 lens. 📷
After the Street Photography presentation, I had a delicious Pesto & Chicken sandwhich at Berkely Bowl, with ‘Ansel Adams’, who appeared to be walking around the place – apparition, inspiration, or guiding star 🌟- it made me wish to pursue shooting more film photography! 🎞
And then I’d like to bring both digital & film photography education to students and media professionals alike, here in the burgeoning Sunset Parkside District of San Francisco.
