Random confessions: ONE – I frequent numerous wedding photographer blogs. TWO – I rarely feel inspired by automotive photographers. THREE – I remain in a constant stage of confusion and insecurity with my photography. Wedding photographers are some of the best documentary photographers and “plucking” those special moments. When I think of automotive photography…it’s like the cars are smiling and saying cheese. It’s staged with off camera flashes. It’s the same angles and the same set of photos. I don’t dislike it. I understand its purpose but I don’t like photos of people and they’re arms around one another and looking into the camera and smiling…it’s not plucking a sincere moment in time. This is just me and as I mentioned…I am constantly confused and insecure.
Sometimes I ramble. Ignore me.
Above and slightly below – the righteous work of Jesse Alexander in all its condemned blacks, unapologetic whites and every forgiven grey soul in between. The man can do no wrong in slaying us with sharp bladed imagery. Three images that prove that shooting cars sans-color is timeless and simply…works.
