Richard Bram (1)

A year or so ago someone commented on the blog that he was bored of the very formal photographs on the opening page which look as if they were taken for an annual report, and indeed were.   I have been puzzling what to do about this and mentioned it to Richard Bram, an American street photographer, who generously offered to take more informal photographs.   So, we spent the first part of the morning scouting locations, as observed by his eagle eye, and then taking quick informal photographs with his digital Leica.   He taught me the term ‘chimping’ which is when a photographer checks the quality of the photograph on screen immediately after taking it, which professionals generally frown on, and ‘shunpiking’ which is used for the avoidance of the tolls on the turnpike in order to travel on minor roads.
