Frank Jackson on Street Photography I am happy and excited to announce a new RFF forum on Street Photography mentored by Frank Jackson, one of the best producers of analog B/W prints I have ever seen. His shows include the Open Shutter Gallery, Heriard-Cimino Gallery, and Ogden Museum of Southern Art. His images are in the collections of Smithsonian Ogden Museum of Southern Art, California Afro American Museum and Xavier University New Orleans LA. He has worked for or has been featured with Visa Card, Xerox, UCLA, Eric Owen Moss, Architect, Hasselblad Forum (cover),Gordon Parks, Muhammed Ali, Million Man March Wash. DC, Lionel Hampton, jazz legion photographer , 1995-2002, Stevie Wonder, B+W Magazine (British version) twice, Rangefinder Magazine, Dahon Bicycles, Arelli Wheels, Real Product Design, Automobile Club of Southern California. Frank's online images are at fotographz.500px.com and fotographzfrankjackson.tumblr.com . "While on this diverse photographic journey…I have to say during this whole time my love for fine art black and white photography kept growing. I always found time to shoot in different cities and my own personal work…this has sustained me through some very tough times. As of 2012, with the help of a very good friend I maintain a state-of-the-art dream darkroom. The darkroom helps greatly in the on-going practice of understanding “the light”, being able to process film and print drives me to keep my digital photography “organic”. I’m curious visually and shooting what’s, what on the street feeds this curiosity. Everyday I walk out my front door to “see” the world with a digital camera, a film camera, the “cup” and an open mind (mostly).

This Saturday I decided I'm ready to get back into street photography. This is a quick scan from 35mm Pan F / Nikon FE and 50 f2. It's a nice fast little camera for shooting on the street.

I really dislike scans from film. Darkroom prints are the way to go and then scan. There's just not as much depth and feeling with a film scan IMO.

You could have taken many pictures of this gentleman but I can't imagine that any others would reveal quite as much to the viewer about an amazing subject. A wonderful portrait.
Thanks! I chatted with him for a few minutes before making this portrait. He had served in many of the world's hot spots, not just Iraq and Afghanistan but also Congo and other somewhat wild places. A fascinating man. I'm glad I managed to get this portrait. I only wish I could give him a copy - sadly I didn't get his contact details.

Rangefinder -- I usually find this is the ideal distance for me. I like a bit of context in the shot, and I start to trust the focus a lot less.
