I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while now, and recently started noticing other photographers talk about this topic on their podcasts and videos, so I thought I would throw my thoughts into the mix. I’m also interested in hearing your thoughts and stories.
If you’re not familiar with the work of Saul Leiter, you really owe it to yourself to check out his photography. He is one of my very favorite photographers. The mood and the feel from his photography is so inspirational to me and I connect with it very strongly. Mood, intimacy, personal attachment, and the layers…. Beautiful work. I’ve put some photos together on Pinterest that you can check out Mr. Leiter’s photography. I should say in advance that, depending on where you work, some of the images might be considered NSFW.
