Avedon at MOMA

I almost missed it but I managed to sneak in under the wire to the Richard Avedon exhibit at SF MOMA recently, excellent show! Avedon is one of my favorite portraitists, up there with Leibowitz and Demarchelier in my book. Maybe not as creative as Leibowitz but I've never seen anyone able to give such gravitas to a portrait as Avedon. And seeing his work in larger-than-life size just added to the atmosphere. Thanks Rosanne for the field trip!

And it's been awhile....

(someone's going to get that, I just know it)

Hey-ho, what's up everyone? I know I haven't blogged here in a while, clearly I haven't been shooting much, though I've been thinking about it more and more lately. I miss my little metal friends! Time just keeps getting away from me somehow....

As a fan of the film Iron Man and pretty much everyone in it, and a fan of the outstanding documentary photography of actor Jeff Bridges, I thought some of you would enjoy checking out this well-put-together virtual book documenting the making of Iron Man on jeffbridges.com. All black and white panoramic shots as he likes to do, with insightful handwritten notes scattered throughout. I particularly enjoyed the angsty haircut shots (how did he frame those, I wonder?) and the workshop shots. Check it out!

Happy shooting! And happy Holidays!
