JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 10.30.21

Here we are, at the end of another month.

As you can see, my grid is filled with the colors of Fall.

Oranges, reds, yellows, all coming into full prominence here in New Jersey.

This time of year, my thoughts often go to past travel.

India in October, back in 2009

Germany in 2017

Different times, different faces, different places.

My week started slow, or regular, when jumped at the ping of an text message.

Two really.

Two jobs kinda fell in my lap, which I’ll talk about when I can.

One happened on Thursday night, one going off later today.

And through it all, we keep motoring along…snapping pix when we can, backing up our work (right?), and just seeing life through these photographer eyes.



This Week’s Links:

What I’m Reading This Week: Halloween Night: 5 Minute Stories

What I Watched This Week: The Raven (1935). (Interestingly, this movie seemed to get panned, yet there’s a few elements to it that seem to have given birth to other incantations – Lerch in The Addams Family, for one). Also, I watched Halloween (the original) with Chase. Very much less gore or slashing that in future editions. More spooky, eerie. Fine for an 11 year old.

Listen: Back in 2013, Debbie Millman spoke with Stephen Doyle on her long-running podcast, which I’ve recently found, Design Matters. Stephen and I traveled the world together back in the early 2000s. He instilled in me a love of design and fonts, though I’m not good at either of them. We keep in tangential touch, but it was nice to hear his voice again.

Composition: How to use foreground to create better photos (I try to “layer” more now)

Lighting: Three easy portrait set-ups for small spaces.

Joe McNally: Nikon Z 9: Meet The New Boss (That opening banner photo is EPIC!)

Austin Kleon: Inside The Mask (Halloween kind, not pandemic kind)

Barb Davidson: Portraits of Pandemic Evidence (people in masks, the pandemic kind, not the Halloween kind)

In Black & White: John G Zimmerman (who would have been 94 today)

Watch:Listen: Halloween, by The Gaslight Anthem

Watch/Listen: Thriller, by Michael Jackson
