by no means do i profess to be a great photographer. but i do love taking pictures. photos are a great source of inspiration. it is also an easy way to collect a lot of visual data quickly. it probably doesn’t come as a surprise, but i prefer using a film camera over digital (my first choice would be my Canon AE-1). my iPhone is perfectly splendid for those down and dirty moments – but on occasion, it is preferable to slow down and really think about the image and composition.
