The Tools of My Trade
The photograph to illustrate this post are tools from my Dad's tool box during his days as at Auto-body repairman. My photography involves using tools of a different sort, everything from digital cameras for my photojournalism work to view cameras that use film up to 8 x 10 inches in size for my fine art work. I love using my tools just as much as the next photographer and find certain cameras and lenses inspiring to use but the camera is just a means to the end. I always like to think that the picture starts out as a concept in one's mind and the camera gives me the ability to take that concept and turn it into a photograph that others can see and respond to.
