How We Eat

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

This is the beginning of a series of photos I’m working on entitled “How We Eat.” I will be documenting various aspects of eating in this country, focusing on restaurants but also considering markets, perhaps farms, food itself, and other related subjects.

For all of you photo geeks out there, all of these exposures were around 12 seconds or so.

  6. Evan – heard you on the Inside Analog Photo podcast. Fantastic interview, and seeing your work didn’t dissapoint! I was curious about your choice of crop for these images. I like it and am guessing the extra bit of frame above or below doesn’t contribute much to the image you are presenting but I’m always curious to hear about other photographers thought processes!

    Also are you shooting your Tri-X at 400?

  7. Tony: Thank you!
    Yes I’m shooting the Tx at 400.
    The 16×9 crop has two additional reasons to that one you mentioned:
    First, I was originally shooting the first couple of shots trying to fill a frame I already have. Second, and more importantly, since I’m not shooting with a view camera or tilt shift, cropping the frame to a more panoramic view allows me to shoot with the camera more level, and achieve a more corrected perspective than the equipment would normally allow.
