Wide Open is my idea of a place where photographers who have a shared interest in classic and portrait lenses and shooting wide open, can come together to exchange ideas and images. Shooting in this particular style, whenever, and wherever possible, to incorporate selective focus and bokeh and textural nuance is undergoing a resurgence, and for many photographers, the rediscovery of this type of imagery is providing untold inspiration.
We hope to have a great number of photographers presenting their work on this site, in color, monochrome, polaroids, and the Alternative processes...............Holgas, 'Do it yourself' lens prototypes, work produced from pinhole cameras, all are welcome. Along w/your name, please indicate whether you want your image classified as color, monochrome, a Polaroid and so forth so I can index the shot by artist and/or process. Please, no nudity, other than that, please enjoy 'Wide Open'.
