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).

good catch, Allen, with the streetlight over the good fairy's head; looks like part of her wand.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

I photographed the Ford Galaxie using a Fuji X-Pro 1 using a Rokinon 8mm full frame fisheye lens. The image was "defished" using Image Trend's Fisheye-Hemi plug in. I utilized the 180 degree field of view of this lens to capture the expanse of the Milky Way during a recent moonless night here in Montana. With this lens, I was able to do a 40 second exposure without noticeable star trailing. The interior of the car was illuminated with two blue LED lightsticks on the back seat and the exterior was briefly illuminated with a blue LED flashlight, using my hand to block the light from the ground. The taillights were lit with a snooted, red LED flashlight. While all of my other light painting image are a single exposure, in this instance, I had to stack two exposures -- one for the Milky Way (40 sec. @ f/2.8, ISO 3200) and one for the car (100 sec. @ f/4, ISO 800) to provide me with the image that I had envisioned for this location.

I photographed this car on the same night that I shot the "Milky Way Galaxie" in the preceding post.





Transplant




Fuji X-Pro 1, 10-24mm XF lens at 10.5mm, 180 sec. @ f/4, ISO 200

Exterior lighting was a combination of a purple gelled flash, red LED flashlight and a white light MiniMag AA flashlight. The interior was illuminated by distant outdoor lights which backlit the car and by placing two red LED lightsticks on the front seat.
