FRANKLIN OBREGON

Name- Franklin Obregon
Age- 24
Where are you from?- Born in Caracas, Venezuela. Raised in Richmond, VA.
Your equipment- Olympus Stylus Epic for the most. Nikon dlsrs, Mamiya c330, Fuji Instax, Canon p&s other times.

Influences and photographers you like- Influenced by everything that I consume. All that I see, eat, hear has an effect on what I shoot and how I shoot it. It's all an attempt to encapsulate the feeling of the moment as to not forget. I have really bad memory so being able to look at a photograph and remembering how happy/sad/etc I felt at the time is key.
Photographers that I enjoy are Patrick Tobin, Noah Kalina, Jonathan Leder, Ana Kras, Lina Scheynius, Pierre Wayser, Martin Parr, Chad Moore, Chip Willis, Dimitri Karakostas, Lukasz Wierzbowski, and Michel Comte.
A little about you- There is a divide in the work that I produce, film vs. digital, the look and the overall effect. The film stuff has a narrative because it's essentially my life. I like film more because of the grain, the tonal range, and the fact that I won't really know what a photo will look like until I get it developed.
The digital is a once-in-a-while type of thing nowadays. The digital stuff that I shoot I feel is more clean, creamy. It's a whole different monster. Usually it's mostly used when I'm shooting models.
I am in the process of putting together a couple of new zines. I have one out now thru PogoBooks. Go check it out.
