Random Photo Quote:
If a subject has a delicate surface to it, you do not want to go charging in there. You need to establish some kind of presence and understanding. I will say, 'Try to forget I'm here. I won't ask you to pose, I won't ask you to do anything.' It's important that I just be allowed to be around, to be present. Photographing people requires a willingness to be rejected. So, I think the best approach is to be honest and direct. Very often, I tell them, "You don't know me. There's no reason why you should trust me...the only thing I can promise is that I'll try to do the most honest work I can. Ultimately, it comes down to somehow being able to instill confidence. I don't think you can bullshit your way into that, because a lot of these people can see through walls. If you want to photograph people, you'd better know something about them. [Allard often credits "Serendipity" for the success of his pictures.] I like to explore, to be sensitive to the rhythms of the moment. Exploration means seeking out what I think is there, and yet often finding something finer, something closer to the center, that no amount of research could have led me to. I tend to react more than direct. You have to be receptive [to your subject]. You have to care. You can't do good work if you don't care. That's not necessarily a strength, but it gives you strength.  William Albert Allard - "Photographic Essay (American Photographer Master Series)" by William Albert Allard

Why You Should Join a Camera Club.


In memory of long time SBCC member
John Bohner

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

John, we will miss you.


 

Please use the poll below
to give us your opinion
Monthly Poll
When photographing things that might be targets of terrorists.
I never worry about such things and shoot away.
I worry about that and do not shoot the location.
I shoot and run before anyone notices
I have already been detained by the police
I am a terrorist 'All your bases are belong to us'

Help support your local camera store!

We are lucky enough to have 2 great full service camera stores that are local to our members.

Before buying on-line or from some chain store, how about giving them a chance at the deal. They have always been there for us, now it is our turn to be there for them, or next time you need something now, they may not be around.

Visit Silvio's Photoworks and Paul's Photo for new and used film & digital cameras, accessories, workshops, and all the other goodies real camera stores carry. You will sleep better at night knowing you did your part.
