Shoot Portraits Not People

Jason Siegel is an accomplished lifestyle, music and fashion photographer whose controversial art installation “Shoot Portraits, Not People” is set for debut in Aspen on Friday January 13th at The BLK MKT gallery. This creative and provocative exhibit is Siegel’s first non-photography based art project and displays photographic equipment built into high-powered weaponry, offering a look into the idea behind shooting portraits, not people—Vimeo

How many of us talk about shooting photos when we really mean that we took photographs?

I do.

This embedded video may influence your choice of words in the future. It has certainly captured my attention.

    Thank you for sharing. Since some of the common words used in photo narrative have negative connotations I explore other alternatives; such as, create an image, being present to …, connecting with the moment. For me this often takes a bit of time.

    I’ll try harder to say capture image. How about that as an alternate ?
