Why People Like Bad Photography

Why People Like Bad Photography

I have given it a lot of thought: Why do people like bad photography? More specifically why do people like photography that offers little more than aesthetic value. When starting out, photographers tend to be enamored by what they see as good photography, mostly because they do not understand how it is done. But once they figure it, in order to grow as an artist, they should begin asking themselves their intent. Why are they making photographs the way they are making them? How can they make meaningful images and grow as an artist? I have been a professional event photographer in Los Angeles for 10 years while teaching photography at the same time.

Anscomark M Film Camera

Anscomark M Film Camera

The Anscomark M is the sturdiest camera I have ever held. "Built like a tank," is one of the most overused expressions when it comes to cameras, but it really does apply here; We are talking WWI era tank to be clear ;) This camera is feature-full from built in selenium light meter, threaded cable release hidden below the shutter button, to it's interchangeable lenses. Unfortunately it can be very hard to find lenses for this camera if you can even find the camera at all. I am looking forward to shooting with this camera and I'm very excited to share my results with you all!
