Elliott Erwitt once said "To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them". I love that quote, and I've been embracing the slow season that naturally happens in January/February by exploring places around Pittsburgh and shooting film. Sort of like a treasure hunt that helps me re-charge, try new things, and just have fun.
The reason I choose film for personal work is because it slows me down. I don't constantly look at the LCD in the back, I stay in the moment, and am limited to only 12-24 frames, which means that I have to be very deliberate with what I capture. Even though I visit Phipps Conservatory numerous times per year, I always find something new that catches my eye. Here are a few from the Phipps winter flower show.
