Back to the future of photography No.1.

What will your next camera body be and what features and specifications would you most like? I bet you’d love full frame, 25 megapixel equivalent and 16-bit depth. How about a top shutter speed of 1/8000 of a second and a flash sync at 1/250th?

Back to the future of photography No. 0.

For me, the months of 1996 were marked not by the calendar, but in issues of Better Photography Magazine. I turned 28 that year and had already been a keen photographer for more than a decade, wielding my Hanimex 110 Tele with its 16mm film from about the age of 17 before graduating to a preloved Ricoh XR10 a year or two later.

A couple of days ago a popular G+ mate of mine, Lotus Carroll, put out a call to anyone interested in joining her new Parenting Circle. She has a large and adoring following thanks to her unique take on photographing herself and the flowers and bugs in her garden and, as I type, more than 200 of her fans have eagerly asked to be added to her new Circle.

Do you take photographs, or make them?

As my own photography matures and as the power of the digital darkroom becomes increasingly more accessible I find myself becoming less satisfied by traditional aspects of photography and more drawn to the artistic possibilities of new media.
