Why am I drawing, Not Photographing?

I’m scared of keep repeating myself., of producing the same shit over & over whereas every drawing is different – maybe because my emotions have more impact…

More later…

Meanwhile here is a mini project I shot in my studio in Worthing this weekend, all on an X-T2 with the 35/1.4 in Acros.

I’ve been trying to work out why I’m drawing so much and not photographing so much (street / news etc) and walking across waterloo bridge just now I think I got it… Seeing that view that I love I wanted to pull.put my camera but then thought “what’s the point, I’ve shot it so much” and then it hit me…

One thought on “Why am I drawing, Not Photographing?

  1. I’m not in your league, at all, but especially of late, I have found myself far more discerning as to whether I shall create an image or not. Especially in the street. I, too, had an epiphany the other week, when I was talking to another photographer far better than I about this phenomenon. I don’t seek the ‘decisive moment’ any longer because I love talking to the people who have caught my attention. And, it is that catching my attention that is key. I subsequently read Edmund White’s “The Flâneur” and realised that this is probably a better description than “street photographer” or “visual sociologist”!
