Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others. SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years.

You can view Simon's work at http://www.simonbephotography.com/  and www.facebook.com/simonbphotography Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes. Thank for taking this on Simon!

Postcard Print Sale Project




I have decided to make and sell postcard sized prints (10x15cm on Hahnemühle Baryta paper) of three series:



Postcards from the Waterfront


Postcards from Japan


Postcards from Another Time


I thought this might be something other RFF'ers would want to get behind and get their own postcards out and circulating. It's definitely a lot more accessible than selling and buying full-sized prints and having to frame them and whatnot.



I'm curious as to what condition the cards will arrive at their destination in if sent like a regular postcard, but that's part of the fun. I do have envelopes just in case.

RFF has each year a postcard project, Simon. In the most recent one, several RFF members stated their preference to send postcards without being in an envelope. The wear and tear from being through the postal systems was part of the charm, was their explanation.

I have been quite out of the loop, it seems. Regarding the patina I definitely agree, others may not.

I took part in many of the postcards project at RFF and I fully agree that the patina adds something special, makes the postcard alive!

I have participated in the postcard project in the past, but it’s been a while. Is there a thread that will point me to the next round?
