The Empty Bottle Project 029

Wandos
602 University Avenue
53715

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many bars & restaurants have been required by law to limit their capacity or utilize outdoor space if social distancing is not achievable inside. In spring of 2020, under Governor Tony Evers’ "Safer at Home" order, bars were required to shut down from the end of March through May. These photos document this chapter in Madison’s history. Many establishments have withstood the trial, but for others this was last call.

Just taking a moment to remember some of the great moments, trips, and experiences that I've had while accompanied by Fuji's professional color negative film Pro 400H. The company just announced this film's discontinuation. While I cannot say I am surprised, I am still disappointed. And while I can say that I shot way more Portra 400 over the years, I would change the flavor of my colors a bit with a roll of 400H and always appreciated the film for its qualities and differences. I will certainly miss 400H, perhaps not as much so as I miss 160C, but miss it nonetheless.

For way too many people, taking a good photo is about composition. Or light. But those are the aspects that are easy for us to take it. Doesn't take more than a moment to appreciate some good light, or a well-composed shot.

The photos that stick with, me, though? They've got emotion. They've got feeling. They're trying to convey something to the audience.

I'm sure I've talked about this dozens of times...but I don't remember! I write a lot, I got a whole life, I can't be expected to remember everything I write! That's crazy talk!

For me, it's usually something happy, something fun. For great photographers, it's far more subtle, occasionally veering into feelings neither you nor the artist themselves can articulate.

Taking a picture of a person and having the audience only come away with "oh, pretty", that's...WHAT A WASTED OPPORTUNITY!

GIMME FEELING. Hell, even super-sexy photos that objectify their subjects make folks feel SOMETHING. Maybe that Something is a base emotion or desire, but it's better than my eyes just gliding right off the photo.

Why are you taking that picture? What are you trying to show me? Is it interesting enough I'm going to spend more than 12 seconds looking at it?

That's the goal. Maybe I should cite a fake study, "photos where the audience spent more than 10 seconds looking were more often remembered by the audience."

Total bullshit...OR IS IT
