TtV At Chicago's Navy Pier

People (and even I) will sometimes ask me: "jkirlin? Why do you carry all that shit around with you?"

So then I start to explain how as a child I suffered from The Anxieties and now into adulthood I...

And then usually stop me and say, "No, the camera shit."

And I awkwardly chuckle like I knew what they meant all along.

Then I explain for instance, how I enjoy the use of the TtV and and frequently engage subjects into discussions of it's design and use and let them hold it and get photos that I might not otherwise have gotten or that it allows me to see from a different angle, like usually waist level rather than eye level, etc...which doesn't really explain all ther other lenses, cameras, or the Lensbaby.

But the truth?

I don't know how to work with masks or layers in Photoshop.

Happy again??

  1. You carry all that shit around in the hope of stretching your arms.

  2. Jeff, it would appear its time to schedule you an appointment at Casa Joles for a little one on one training on photoshop layer masks!!!

  3. You're making me giggle a lot today, JKirlin. :)

  4. I just saw a picture of a Kodak Duoflex the other day and remembered that we used to have one of these at home when I was a kid! I don't think I have it now, though, sadly. Now I can't make a public spectacle of myself by using one with the homemade contraption...

    Also, what Min said.
