In the book I am reading “SHOW YOUR WORK”, author Austin Kleon talks about sharing behind the scenes stuff. I typically don’t do that, not sure why not? Maybe because I feel it’s not that interesting. But I decided I will share more things via my Create (Daily) posts. And so this seems to be a good platform to share stuff like this. Today, I finished the another roll of Kodak Portra 400, and have now 3 undeveloped rolls. Most of these photographs were shot in downtown Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Some of them were at night.
In today’s episode, I have a discussion with Kyle McDougall about his project An American Mile. In American Mile, Kyle depicted a 256 days trip across the United States, exploring the small towns and backroads that are strewn across its vast landscape. We discuss this project and also projects in general. And along the way, touch on other topics such as medium film, sequencing (of images), format (of negatives), film stocks, printing, color, consistency, style and other topics related to the creative process.
Here are some updates of what has been going on creatively in the past several weeks.
