In a time of Facebook, Twitter, and instagram fewer and fewer photographers are printing their work. With the bright displays of cellphones, tablets, and laptops nobody is actually picking up books, or even viewing pictures in their physical form, but there are a few of us that like to hold up a print and marvel at it, or enjoy the excitement in others when they receive a printed picture of themselves. Some of favorite photographers that I draw inspiration from are those who encourage printing your work or creating photo books a few that you can find on YouTube are Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography I just love his channel if you do follow his channel please go check it out right now he has weekly photo assignments that involves showing your work printed in a journal, another person is Peter McKinnon who just recently made a video about prints, and one other I really enjoy is Matt Day all very talented photographers. One quote that I found very inspirational when I was first getting into photography is “If you live for photography but none of your work is hanging on the wall, or if you live for nature but have nothing that reminds you of nature in your home, then there is a disconnect” by Art Wolfe. This is very true and I follow that now throughout my home you will find photographs of my work, and others in photo albums or journals and I would rather see my work in that perspective where I can enjoy it everyday in physical form. Tell me do you print your work? What is your inspiration for printing photographs? And do you still hand out photographs to people? Thank you and if you don’t follow me yet please do, and if you are on instagram follow me there also @dewon.wilson, and @deewilsonphotography
Hey guys this was once again a really good fashion week in New York City. Once again I was shooting the Style NY show which was held this year at the Hammerstein Ballroom, instead of the ambiance filled Gothem venue. This year I only shot one day of the 3 day event because of my very recent spinal fusion surgery which really caused me to have to push myself through. Despite that there were some very talented models, designers, stylists, and designers who showcased their spring/summer 17 fashions. The gear I used to capture my images was the Canon 5Ds paired with my sigma sport 120-300mm f/2.8 lens, and also I put my Canon 80D paired with the sigma art series 50-100mm f/1.8 lens. The main setup with my 5Ds has never failed me, the surprise for me was how well the Canon 80D performed in that environment and the Sigma art 50-100mm f/1.8 lens was amazing.
Another one of my favorites designers of the evening was Bound by The Crown Couture Collection. This show also featured MTV’s Tori Deal.
