Compawssion, A book of rescued dogs portraits

A few months ago, I was asked to shoot Frank Bruynbroek’s portrait for his upcoming book called Compawssion it is a project he was working on for the last 15 years, as well I was asked to shoot and edit a short teaser for the book.

Frank’s passion for photography and his love and compassion for dogs has culminated into a beautiful book of photographs of rescued dogs, and I was happy to take a part in it.


You can read more about Frank here.

Rail gates

I was shooting a project in downtown LA this week. It’s a wonderful area to hunt for compositions. Using a smart phone made it very easy to snap this image while crossing the train rails to the other side of the river, I processed it the next time I had a couple of free minutes.

Noon, Downtown Los Angeles.

On my way back from Pasadena, after wrapping up my show today, I stopped for a hot dog in downtown LA.

I got a ticket.

Smartphone photography is fun

Smartphone photography is fun, I stopped using my snapshot camera a year ago, shortly after I started using a smart phone. Up to that time I always carried a compact camera with me, even when I had my Professional DSLR camera with me, it was usually a canon powershot.
Now I always have with me my phone/snapshot camera/music library/phonebook/portfolio/…. well, you get the idea.

Thanks to Steve Jobs for refining the concept, and thanks to all the rest who picked up the ball and started running. The best is yet to come.

The smart phone images are about as good as any snapshot camera, less the zoom capabilities.

I never use the phone’s digital zoom, I prefer to crop an image after taking it, that’s if I really need to. In order to satisfy my kink for constantly framing the world around me, the smart phone is a great solution.

The huge variety of cool apps out there is a bit confusing at first but I narrowed it down to two apps that I find are fun and helpful. The one I can’t do without is Thamba photo editor, it’s a feature rich “Photoshop” substitute, the other is LoMob which allows me to mimic different film styles. Here’s a couple of recent shots.

I shot the first one at my doorstep this resilient little thing was growing from the concrete two feet front of my door. I consider it lucky even though it has only three leaves. I shot he fire hydrant a couple of blocks from my house.

Minerva

Here’s another image from my current exhibition, she’s called Minerva, She’s named after the German factory that made her, around 1910.

Minerva

It looks like someone tried to restore her paint job many years ago, pretty badly I must say, I find that it’s adding character to her, well that and her teeth.
