Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Great job, Jeffery! Now all you need is to get a user name here and start posting.

Jeff Bridges might not be the greatest photographer ever, but for some reason his works always make me smile.

His photos are good, but beyond that it's the feeling of a sympathy for his subject, a simplicity and a restrained elegance that make them worth watching.

And well, he's the Dude after all. What could anyone ever say against that!

I must admit having (sorely) missed Iron Man on the big screen, but still want to see it. The Bridges photos (and text) are wonderful. It's funny that I only saw The Big Lebowski totally by chance, since I'd convinced myself early on that I wouldn't like it; of course, I ended up loving it. (I was rather late warming up to the Coen Bros. thang.)

Perhaps more important - elsewhere on his site I see they're making Tron 2!

I must be the only red blooded male in N. America who didn't think Iron Man was such a great flick – adequate, yes; great, no. Still, Bridges is a cool dude. I've seen his still photography before. The playfulness is fun. I like the behind the scenes look at film making.

Based on his books, I've tried shooting "regular" scenes with an Xpan. Believe me, it is alot harder to do than it looks. His panoramic scenes are great - inspired even. I may have to break out my Xpan and try again. But it takes alot of practice, and I'm not a dedicated enough pano shooter to get good at it. I use mine mostly for landscapes, which is of course too obvious to really teach you anything about pano framing.
