Terry Border – Bent Photographer

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, October 26th, 2015

Every now and then I like to showcase a particularly brilliant photographer whose work is so exceptional it makes me think admiringly, “God dammit! Why didn’t I think of that?! That work should be mine!” Terry Border of Bent Objects fame is just such a photographer.

There’s no junkie like gear junkies

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, October 19th, 2015

Ok, I’m here to warn you about the dangers of becoming obsessed by owning the latest and greatest in photo gear. The only problem is that a lot of this new fangled gear is just too cool for words and I don’t blame you in the least for drooling over it! Every time I get on my podium and state that, “Back in my day, when we were hungry, we ate our film!” somebody waves their latest gadget in front of me and I think “Well shit – I have to have that.”

Why I still love view cameras

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, October 12th, 2015

My 8X10 large format camera now sits on its Gizzo tripod in a corner of my living room more as a cherished monument to the past than a brilliantly versatile photographic tool. I’ve had that camera since the 1980s and have shot many of my most important images on it, so at least it’s had a good life. Like most photographers, I’d say 98% of my work is now shot digitally (and I love digital photography), but I still do pull out my large format cameras and shoot film on very important shots.

1st Guitarist

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, October 5th, 2015

I’m discovering the great thing about a blog is it allows me to think out loud (great for me anyway). I shot this image a while back and it is the first in a series I have been considering doing. The series pairs historical cultures with the appropriate guitar – you can imagine the social importance of getting this right. Right? 1st Nations was the first culture to be tackled and, of course, no other guitar would do except for the iconic and venerable Stratocaster. If any culture deserved the most soulful and crunchy blues guitar, it was 1st Nations. Well, African American would obviously deserve it seeing they actually invented the blues, but there are already so many iconic images of legends like Muddy Waters that I didn’t think it needed my interpretation.
