Camera Position 04 : Patience and Seeing

Using a photograph of Venice, Camera Position #4 explores the idea of how sometimes what you think you want in a photograph isn’t the most interesting thing there. Sometimes the subject is right in front of you; you just have to be patient enough to find it.

Camera Position 03 : Paul Caponigro’s Two Leaves

Camera Position #3 features a discussion about one of my all-time favorite photographs by one of my all-time favorite photographers, Paul Caponigro. The photograph, “Two Leaves, Brewster, NY, 1963” is discussed alongside some images that were made at the same time, giving us some sense of how a photographer finds and “works” a subject.

Camera Position 02 : Light in Montepulciano

Camera Position #2 is about a photograph I made in 1997 of the Tempio di San Biagio, a beautiful Renaissance church just outside the walls of the Tuscan hilltown of Montepulciano. It’s all about the light and waiting for that light to be right.
