The Leica File: Eighteen


Drifting in the morning swell. The diesels have stopped. Your body, in tune with being on a boat, stirs when something starts or stops. I wake and right there is the rescue chopper stalled overhead. The portal glass is thick, nearly soundproof. M4. 35mm. One frame, two frames. An injured crew member is lifted up and away. The rotor wash a last goodbye.

    1. Andrew,
      Practice. Limit your gear and just go into the field every single day you can. Only look at work in book form. Don’t look at much work online. Too easy to see too much. Finding your style is the key. Took me ten years.
