May 2017 Artist of the Month
Spencer Pullen, is Charlotte County's May 2017 Artist of the month. Spencer Pullen has many years of experience and he says he loves photography and teaching others what he knows about photography. Currently, he has decided to try something different. He made the plunge and purchased a large format field film camera. These types of cameras were used by some of the most famous photographers in our nations past. He uses 8x10 film and develops and processes his own negatives. This gives him total control over the final print and how it is presented to the viewer, he says. You can view some of Spencer Pullen's work on his website at www.spencerpullen.com
"The hands on process of loading the film, composing the scene, taking the photograph, developing the film and then creating the print, gives me a deeper appreciation of every photo I take. I have to say that I don’t miss digital. It’s great to hold a 40×50 print in your hand!" -Spencer Pullen
