    Boone Speed –50 Photos IGAFA

    The backstory: A buddy of mine recently started delving into photography and asked my advice on how to progress. My off-the-cuff response: “Start defining your style by creating a body of your work. It doesn’t have to be extensive, just make one definitive image per week. In a year, that’s 52 photos. It’s not easy, in fact, I’ve only made 50 photos I give a f**k about.”That conversation spurred me to find my 50. To my surprise, I flagged 1230 images that are meaningful to me –for a bunch of different reasons. Interestingly though, that’s an average of about one per week since I embarked on my own photography journey in 1999. Of those 1230, these 50 consistently top my list.My criteria:

    • Each image stands on its own — no caption or supporting photos required.
    • The shot looks better the larger its printed, revealing more detail, more context, and its overall photographic quality.
    • There’s an element of special access, these images weren’t made by someone just standing there with a phone.
    • Personal context — my intentions were set, and my expectations were met or exceeded.

    And then sometimes, I was just plain lucky.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Thank you for coming.

    Boone
