I was listening to a Chase Jarvis Interview last night where he stated that, when he first started taking photos, he would do everything in his power to shoot, shoot and shoot some more. This is basically the way I see things as well. And this started way back in the day.
When I was living in Paris, France I would take my trusty bicycle (I actually took it with me to Vancouver!) and would bike around the city at night just to photograph stuff.
The idea at the time was just to get a better understanding of how the ISO relates to the aperture, shutter speed, grain, depth of field and stuff like that. Settings that I don’t even think about today, were not intuitive to me at the time.
Also, I hadn’t figured out that my passion really lies in photographing people not landscapes so I shot whatever was around me. Like the Eiffel Tower or la Seine.
I gotta admit, people often ask me if I miss France and Paris and my answer is always a solid “no”, but no matter how I feel about it, from an architecture point of view, Paris kicks some serious ass.
