Viewfinders - The Untouchables

 Azzari Jarrett | Polaroid Film

I'm over on Viewfinders today, sharing a bit about the photos I call the "untouchables". The ones that I deem imperfect in some way - out of focus, too light, too dark, etc. 

I'm taking a closer look at them and realizing that they make me who I am today as a photographer.

Exposing Children to Photography Exhibits

 Azzari Jarrett | Exposing Children to Photography Exhibits

Please join me over on Viewfinders today as I share some lessons learned when bringing my daughters to our local art museum.

It is so important to expose our children to the arts, to plant those seeds of curiosity.

Viewfinders Guest Post

 On the Table | Black and White Photography by Azzari Jarrett

I've been away for a bit longer than I expected. 

There is nothing better to recharge your spirit than to get out of your normal routine, change things up a bit, and disconnect for a while.  Add to that an epic trip to the Pacific Northwest, and I feel like my creative spark has returned.  

I have so much to share with you, beginning with my guest post over at Viewfinders. I'm sharing a few of black and white instant film photos and my thoughts on one of my favorite films being discontinued.  

I hope you join me there. Much more, soon.

Viewfinders

Viewfinders is a group of 15 photographers dedicated to recording the world around them.  There is so much photo goodness to be found on their site.  

One aspect that I love the most is the Viewfinders Manifesto.  Learn is my favorite - "We believe that making mistakes is essential on the road to making great images: We aim to inspire with beautiful images but we're not afraid to share our struggles and missteps and the learnings that came from them."

AMEN.

Photography, as with any creative pursuit, requires trial and error in order to find your voice, your perspective, your style.

I am honored to be a guest contributor.  

I invite you to join me there for my post, Going Green
