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).

first person view from Leica perspective in Moscow

Hey guys! How are you? Couple of months ago I attached GoPro on top of my M4 and went for take some pictures on the streets of Moscow. It was a really interesting experience and very good day. Right now i developed my negatives and create the videos from three parts.

Here a link on the first one https://youtu.be/mmYcIEgqcJM
Second part https://youtu.be/hWgm7ocej_I
Third part https://youtu.be/Yl2l9QAzkrw

Not so much dialogs in Russian, but if you interesting I can do my best to added subtitles.

Cheers.

I enjoyed it .... a real sense of being there and I really like your photos.

One criticism .... it's too long and my attention started to wander, I would edit it down somewhat.

The light was perfect, and with wide open spaces and people everywhere, Moscow is a great place for street photography.

I loved it.
I liked the way you cut in the stills - showing a contact strip view.

For the sections between shots, where you are hunting, maybe something like hyperlapse? And then back to normal video whenever the camera comes to your eye. Just an idea.

I love the simple mounting on the camera. Everyone else I've seen do this used a hotshoe to tripod screw mount - which raises the gopro and makes the rig look obvious and threatening. This is great.

Thank you, guys! I will do my best next time. My goal is to make balance between shots and walking. I don't want to create an illusion about photography in Moscow, like you can find good pictures on any corner. It's a hard thing anyway.

Very interesting!

The light looked really good. I might have taken shots of some people you walked past in the video.
