“There are the things that are out in the open, and there are the things that are hidden. The real world has more to do with what is hidden.”-Saul Leiter
I started September interested in experimenting with a slow shutter and that in turn got me curious about night photography. Midway through the month, I was able to acquire a macro lens which I’ve been enjoying a great deal; especially to shoot portraits. With that said, it's kind of funny how viewing a subject from up close also got me interested in shooting moving portraits with a wide angle lens!
By the end of September, I watched a few interviews with the late Saul Leiter, a photographer whose work I’ve grown to admire. Something I noticed that was a recurring point in his conversations was his enthusiasm for experimentation, and taking photographs just because one feels like it. Also, I love how there wasn't any mention about camera gear in any of those interviews I’ve seen.
Overall, having access to a variety of focal lengths is making me more conscious about storytelling, and that alone is worth experimenting.
