It gives me great pleasure to introduce the work of Michael Meadows, who is a regular reader of TPF!
- Name & Online Presence: Michael Meadows; http://michaelmeadows.photoshelter.com
- About the Photographs: The photographs are from a small collection of photos on my website that I call “Small Figures, in situ”. They each show one or more people that I found as a fleeting element in what is, to me, an engaging composition. I primarily regard them as just visually attractive photographs, but each also invites one to imagine the story unfolding in the situation it shows.
- About the Photographer: I was a news photographer and then a freelancer beginning about 45 years ago but switched career track after a few years to math and physics. I worked in high tech start-ups as scientist, engineer and manager, making only occasional technical photographs. I planned to freelance again after retirement, but the photo business changed so greatly in the intervening years that I soon discounted that plan. Instead, I now happily photograph the wide range of subjects that I find interesting, free from any professional obligations. I live in the Rocky Mountains west of Boulder, Colorado USA.
- Equipment Used: I used a Nikon D200 and zoom lenses at the time of the Berlin photo. Then I updated my old Leicas and learned to travel much lighter with M8s and 4 lenses, and these were used for all the other photos included here. I’m not very gear-centric and still use either Nikon or Leica equipment depending on the situation.
- Additional Information: Nil.
- Critique Requested: OK
