My new camera takes nice close-up shots. These are from, again, Ryan playing around with the camera. Photography as an artform is harder for me to grasp than someone with a canvas and paint, where the creation starts from a raw material, the creative inside. But examining the way someone frames something, how a moment is captured from a different perspective, it’s easier to see why photography hangs in a museum. If someone had asked me to take a picture of the sewing machine, a roll of upholstery, a book, and the cat, it would have been a much different thing. The lighting would have been rosier, the set-up less organic, and the overall photo more in context–more realistic.
