The Introduction to Blind Photography - 盲人写真家へのいざない

Juan is my echolocation instructor and I am his student, but we sometimes shift our wole,... when it comes to blind photography.
For adventitiously blind, many of them know what photography is, but for born blind, I suspect they have little idea, or hardly be able to picture what photography is what it is for, lacking the experience of taking them and sharing them... I always wonder what blind people would say what photo is...
Juan may be wondering why I am taking so many photographs.
I told him I am sharing to the world what I would see if I have vision, documenting my life through photos.
Juan once told me he satisfies with his iPhone 4 camera, he seems to hold some interests in what I am shooting photos with, so I handed my Ricoh GR Digital 3 to him.

Here is what Juan's first shot that he calls it 'Sky':



事実、私の目の前の物を、ありのままにスナップ撮影をする、いわゆる「candid photography」というのが私の写真で、盲人でありながらリコーのGR Digital IIIの愛用者です。全盲でGRD愛用者って、いるんですかねぇ?
とにかく、フアンはiPhone 4のカメラが生まれて初めてのカメラで、それなりに満足してはいるようですが、私がどんな撮影をしているのか、気になっている様子。そこで、私のカメラを彼に手渡してみました。

Next, Juan learned that I do take photos of self whth all people I am with.
I just call it 'selftake' and I started doing it because I am usually the one who take photos for other people, and I never get a chance to be in a photo... so I figured out the way to take a photo of me and the others in a same frame...
So, this is what I got from the scene.

The First Selftake Shot by Juan

The photo above is what Juan took.
He told me he wanted to shoot in a way I do, so I taught him how to do self take.
I heard he did a great job trying to make everyone in a frame!

And I caught Juan doing selftake with my iPhone camera!
そして、フアンが自分撮りしているところを、私のiPhone 4 カメラで撮影!

Juan's First Photography with (real) Digital Camera!

Even blind guys like us can take decent pictures!
