    I need to learn how to get those types of colors, is it mostly done in PP?
    35mm. I think both of those are on Portra, actually.

    Ah, so the best way to capture that feel is with using actual film? The only experience I have with physical film and developing is from a photography class I took back in high school.

    Just get it developed and scanned at your local lab. I get my negatives done at Big W (rough Australian equivalent of Wal-Mart) for $12 and that gets me a usable for web scan as well. For B&W and positive film you're looking at more money because it will be a speciality lab.

    I gotta say, I'm in love with Trey Ratcliff from StuckInCustoms.com's work. He does some really great HDR and with great taste.

    [release]Q. This is the much-talked-about photo, on Page 91, with a man in a red jacket holding a gun up to someone’s head …

    A. New York magazine called me, and they were doing a story on a series of subway undercover detectives, who dressed themselves and behaved in certain ways to entice muggers.

    And one detective was dressed as a rabbi with a beard, and he wore a gold chain. Of course, rabbis don’t wear chains, but the robber probably didn’t know that. I volunteered, since I had been mugged previously when I was alone… . I volunteered to be a decoy so, I acted in such a way to get mugged. Now, I always had my camera out around my neck when I took pictures because I can’t just hide the camera and then approach people. It has to be out there, in the open. I took a subway map out and pretended I was lost.

    The robber came into the car, robbed the sleeping rabbi/detective — took his chain right off his neck — and came towards me at the end of the car. He said, “Give me that camera!” And just at that moment, I lifted my camera and photographed him. And as I photographed him, [the detective] Billie moved in with the .38 and arrested him, so it was a simultaneous thing. One frame.

    Q. So what we’re seeing, the gentleman in red is actually a police officer.

    A. Yeah, he’s an undercover. And you see, he’s sitting there in the middle of the train with a boombox and dark glasses in that kind of hip-hop clothing, and the robber [thinks], “Oh, I got a brother. He’s going to help me. He’s not going to say anything.” And that was his fatal error.

    The group was disbanded after awhile because the bait was too good. Sometimes the cops looked so good, I was going to rob them myself.

    Q. What happened afterward? Are there other images from the incident?

    A. He was arrested, and I felt sorry for him. As soon as he robbed me, they took him out and cuffed him. They took him right off the train at 42nd Street.

    Then, I felt I couldn’t photograph him being arrested at that moment. I didn’t feel comfortable doing that, because he was cuffed and helpless.

    “Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take a while. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”

    Saw that a while ago, still breathtaking. Top one has got to be one of my favourite photos of all time.

    Edited:

    Oh right, content.



    Also does anyone remember that Flickr site that has a fluid gui that lets you choose a nice photo, then choose from that photographer's favourites to find a nice photo and find a nice photo from their favourites etc.? I remember it being a good way to get inspired.
