It's been a while since I last wrote about Garry Winogrand, but I wanted to share a brief update on my attempt at emulating him. Garry was known for nearly shooting from the hip. Nearly.

Over the past two months, Anna and I worked to create a class on Udemy to cover the fundamentals of film.

They were some of the first pictures I looked at and they instilled in me a love for history along with the desire to capture moments myself.
Welcome to Between 2 Lenses: a collaboration between two people! Two perspectives, really! Each of us (Anna and Nick) bring a unique viewpoint to this endeavor. We want to share, in our own way, what we've learned from film photography. If you were to search film photography on YouTube, which we imagine you have, you'd... Continue Reading →
