San Francisco, 2004

I’ve been using strobe more and more. Outdoors in daylight especially.

Looking at Briank Finke’s website (thanks Jörg) reminds me that with enough strobe anything can look fantastical. The same saturated color can be seen from Martin Parr, for example.

Not just in color, either – strobe is clear in Diane Arbus, Bruce Gilden, and Jeff Mermelstein…. strobe is like no other light. You can make it look “natural,” sure. Should you?

A collision of “what I saw” and “what I made” is at the heart of its charm, no doubt.
