Let it rain

Spring is here and with it rainy days! This is another film photo taken in October 2016 with the LC-A+ lomo camera and processed digitally. I do like the element of chance. Of not knowing. It’s a nice balance to shooting digitally and being able to see it all as you shoot. In an age of instant gratification some things are worth waiting for. I used slightly expired Ilford FP4 125ASA film and just recently got around to scanning the negatives. Today I’ll be shooting in Harlem on a photo tour. Tomorrow a workshop in Coney Island! I love shooting this city. It never bores me.monochromatic Chinatown

Yes, I love taking photos on rainy days! Capturing raindrops on windows and umbrellas are a big favorite of mine. There are days when I can find a million things to photograph and days when I spend my time processing them. It’s all part of the process. Since I started shooting with mirrorless cameras it’s easy for me to always have a camera with me and if the mood strikes, I shoot. No pressure. The worst thing is to leave the house without a camera only to wish that I had one with me! I recently had minor outpatient surgery. So I’m taking it easy for a few weeks and I rescheduled my April workshops. I have 3 workshops scheduled for May! Coney Island, Bushwick and East Harlem.
