ibherb's FIRST RAW MATERIALS

In the Kaimuki backyard In 2010,  Herb gathered together some household items with promising colors, waited for dusk when the light would become optimal, then began swiping his camera across the items, varying his shutter openings and speeds.

The mirror mechanisms in his point-and-shoot camera did the rest, providing images that were unpredictable and remarkably varied from one exposure to the next. He would take dozens of shots of any one set of raw materials, persisting until this curious bond between photographer and camera technology yielded an image that he deemed worthy.
