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).

local unicycle hockey practice on the netball courts every Monday and Wednesday nights. The well lit courts are a popular place at night in a suburb where not much happens.

Lynn,


That picture is outstanding. As a long-time fan (and user) of the Rollei 35S, I am particularly impressed. Great!

How about beers and cameras together? Here's a shot from a Beers & Cameras meetup in San Diego. A surprising number of film shooters, including one fellow who was blasting away at night with his Xpan, with HP5+ pushed to 3200.

Leica M5, Canon 35mm f/2 LTM, ORWO N74+, developed in LegacyPro L110 at 1:31 for 6.5 minutes.

I can feel the "love" and respect for the craft of photography here AND I have started shooting/processing film again...4x5, Medium format....
...I'm loving the new Kodak TMax 3200 in Rodinal.
Thank you and keep them coming.
cheers

Delta 3200, Bessa R3a. the grainy/high-contrast look isn't my favorite, but I've always had a soft spot for this shot.

After dark in Malaysia is less so about smoke and beers, and more so about food.
