Listen: New York, Fuji, Iceland discussed on B&H Photography Podcast
"Of limitations. You need to make those decisions before you press the shutter to grow in the craft. And I'm not telling people to shoot raw. I mean my students sometime get a little nervous. If I said, well, you know, do you really use your raw files? Why do you even shoot them then? And usually they don't, but they have that safety net that they feel they need to have. That's okay. But Ariz I always encourage them to make decisions before the press to shutter. And if you're if you see a scene that is all about color, while it would be a crime to to make it a black and white photographs. So shoot it in color stick to that. And it sounds to me like some of the purity of the pure ISM of. Discipline is a carry over from from shooting film. Is that is that fair to say? Yeah, I started with film like many of us and, and we had to make the decision before we we left the house tonight. Did you switch rate from from shooting film to the food you film system, or did you kind of go through a few transitions and then find yourself comfortable with Fuji film? No, I was actually shot cannon and my last DSL are with a five d Mark to which was great, great camera. And as I was phasing out my commercial photography business, that's when I started shooting with Fuji and literally overnight. I sold all my cannon gear and l. lenses and I stuck with one camera with a fixed Lance, which is the x one hundred s at the time. Now it's f. m. that's all I ever need. I mean, I took it to Iceland even just limiting myself to one focal length. So real street for Doug, a proof proof is in the x one hundred series. I really do think that camera can fit anything. As I said, I went to Iceland and stuck with that and everybody thought I was crazy, but you you see differently. And I really do believe that if you limit yourself, you will. You will do better work. So real quickly, what what are some of the cities that are color cities for you and what are some of the cities that are black and white. As I said, I think Rome, I shoot a lot more color in Rome than I do in Paris. For example, New York is I like New York in black and white also could again, it depends on the day, depends on the light and the subject. It's really the subject that will dictate might choice whether we New York is best with seven year old co, two color, four hundred. Pluses."
