Finn is on an impossible mission to break Magic Man’s curse so that he can finally live his life…and remember it! It’s going to take a lot of pal time and a lot of help from the best of friends but this definitely seems like an adventure that Finn and Jake can take—if only Finn could remember.
At Yosemite Lake, Aikiro Tiongson, September 28, 2014
At Yosemite Lake is an example of Straight/Pure Photography for the following reasons:
-It is “not manipulated.” Other than being rendered black and white, this photograph was not edited in any other way. There was no stacking done to extend dynamic range; neither exposure nor added effects were edited during post processing.
-Straight Photography is “selectivity.” As per Abbott, selectivity entails that you took the picture because it has an impact on you. This photograph was my process of selection during the time my closest friends came over to see me this past weekend. I don’t get to see all of us together very often, so I wanted to take this picture as a document of us hanging out and being at peace by the lake.
-It is “defined by actualities and limitations of photography.” A bit different from manipulation, I understand this idea as working with what tools the photographer has. I only had my camera and kit lens, so I took this picture using my knowledge of photography and the capabilities of my camera. I didn’t pose my subjects; I framed the picture, adjusted my settings according to available light, and took the shot.
-It is a “document of the now.” Straight Photography is a depiction of the present reality, not a representation of artistic ideals or a grand statement of a historic event as what art or Pictorialism tries to show. The “now” can be as simple as documenting someone brushing their teeth. With this photograph, the “now” is what I was experiencing this past Sunday, at 6:32 PM. My friends and I had a moment of pause by the shore, soaking in the scene and reveling in each other’s company.
