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 is in real danger of becoming my favourite RFF thread - more great work Dan. It almost tempts me to bring my 3.5f and plenty of Tri-x when I next go to NY in October (holiday for once so will actually have some shooting time) but I know full well it's the photographer not the camera!

Bring your 3.5f to NYC, most definitely. But before you do, shoot a roll-a-day, so by the time you hit The Big Apple you're ready to take a big bite out of her. She don't care who nibbles. Remember to pack a lens hood, walk around with your exposure set, and your focus at 10ft, and you'll be good to go. And thanks for taking the time to write a reply. Feel free to contact me when you're in town, and we can set-up the tastiest subjects the city has to offer with the old pick-n-roll -- they won't know what hit'em!

It's the roll a day part that's the problem sadly .

A roll a month is probably more realistic on my current form so I'll probably bring something I'm a bit quicker on the draw with, but I'd love to get together for a while to watch the master in action!

Master-schmaster, I'm just having fun. If you don't have film to load in your camera, or time to process it, shoot it dry, and develop the picture in your head. That's the fun part, seeing the shot, shooting the shot, wondering if you got it and reviewing it in your head prior to examining the neg, the scan, and the printing or digitizing. Plus if carry the camera everyday, it won't feel so burdensome when you're on holiday.
