Reminder: Check that the date in your camera has updated to 2022, and if you didn’t do it in the fall, check that you are on the correct daylight savings time.

Photoessays/Bodies of Work
— Julie Hamel: Altered negatives I haven’t seen anything like this before. To me it seems reminiscent of a combination of pinhole camera, photogram and collage.
— Sara Cuce: Memory of the eyes Somewhat surreal representation of what it feels like to be “in between.”
Field and Studio
— Making the best use of shadows
— Understanding the histogram to get perfect exposures.
— Simon Baxter: Interpreting the scene At the beginning of the video I appreciate the way he discusses composing the image. Also an example of “hair ice” a very unusual occurrence.
— Lindsay Adler vs Dani Diamond : Artificial vs natural light
“I’m not just seeing the world differently; I’m seeing myself differently. I’m seeing new possibilities. If that’s what you need in 2022, I wish that for you as well. Maybe it’s time to shake things up. Maybe it’s time to create a body of work that’s different from anything you’ve done before. To be a different kind of photographer than the one you’ve become so comfortable with. Maybe the way to make more photographs in 2022, if your options have to remain limited due to the pandemic, is to make different photographs. I have a feeling it is for me.” — David DuChemin
This might be a good time to look back over the images you have taken during 2021 to ask yourself if you are satisfied, and if not, what you could do differently in 2022.
