This is one of those photographs that has made it’s home in my heart and mind, and I have never forgotten it.
Taken by Brian Brake in the 1960 in India, this photograph clearly exhibits the mastery of Brian Brake over the art and craft of photography.
A saying by B. Brake in the following article which has taught me immensely, “You’ve got eyes boy, use them!“
That saying of B. Brake has taught me and guided me to learn more about metering and not relying on the camera’s meter at all if I didn’t choose to. I think that people nowadays, have receded more and more from the “craft” of photography than ever before and have familiarized themselves with the technicalities and the jargon that surrounds it – esp. in the digital realm.
