Visión: Of Mistakes and Memory

The three photos in this post are a statement. A statement, say, a principle more than anything. A would-be reminder of the constant path of mistakes that one take before one can acomplish something remotely good.

What does a photo of two garbage man in their daily routine has to do with mistakes and self-deprecation?

Well, because you can barely see them. Because there’s no detail of the situation, no context, no faces, no nothing. Because in the rush of taking this pictures I forgot about the light and forgot how to use my freaking camera.

8pm. 100 ISO, f/14 @ 1/60 sec.

And the moment is gone. Underexposed forever. Sure, you can go to Lightroom and brighten the hell out of your photos (like in this case) but the quality will suck. Period.

Maybe because of the time I’m typing this, I’m being way too negative, but regardless of the tone, the lesson stands:

Know your gear, be ready and don’t forget about the light!

Specially if you are just strolling through the city. There’s always situations happening, people doing interesting stuff in front of you and moments you don’t wanna miss. This is particulary true the moment you pull out a DSLR camera. Being kinda big and menacing, people inmediatly asume you’re a pro of some sort and will pose for you.

I salvaged this photos in this gross manner just because I liked the attitude of this two workers and I didn’t want this moments to be lost.

Damn. They could’ve been great photos.
