My thanks to Bryan Formhals for inviting me to contribute to B&H Explora blog's  "How I Got The Shot."
 
"This is not a double-exposure. It's one long exposure—three-and-a-half minutes—on a single frame of film." http://bhpho.to/1uzGKer

Rfotofolio: Tell us about your love of film and the darkroom?

Lori Vrba: I love everything about film.  I love not knowing if I have the shot.  I love the anticipation and hope I feel going in to process new rolls.  I’m still in awe watching a print come up in the tray.  Watching a print come up is not like magic…it is magic.  I’m not a film snob.  I just love waking up and working in it every single day.  It’s right for me and always will be.

Lori Vrba shares her stories, dreams, and mysteries in her art for all of us to explore. Please enjoy. Would you please tell us a little about yourself? I get up early every morning before the sun ...

Harvey Stein: "One of my guiding principles has always been to photograph for myself, to please me, and not to play to the market. I want my work to be honest, real, genuine. If others appreciate it, great, that’s a nice bonus. The work rewards me, not the market place or other people’s opinions." (2013)

Roger Ballen: “I do the art only for myself. I’m not doing it for an audience. I’m doing it to learn more about my own interior. That’s the only purpose. If it weren’t that purpose, then I wouldn’t do it." (2013)

André Kertész: "It's for me. I do it only for myself." (1977)

Introduction
I'm a photographer and photography instructor living in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Biography

Preview, the publication of the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, called David Simonton "one of our state's finest photographers."  In 2004, the Museum inaugurated its North Carolina photography acquisitions program by purchasing two portfolios—those of Elizabeth Matheson and Simonton.

David Simonton has photographed in more than 365 cities, towns, and small rural communities across the Tar Heel State.  His photographs have been included in group and solo exhibitions nationwide, and he has won numerous awards for his work.

Simonton's pictures have appeared in Photography QuarterlyThe Photo Review and The Southern Quarterly: A Journal of the Arts in the South. He was a semifinalist for the Center for Documentary Studies/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography in 2002 and 2004, and a finalist for the Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize in 2011. He is the recipient of grants and commissions, including two Visual Artist Fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council (2000, 2008).

Simonton began teaching photography in 1992. Among his other positions, David was an adjunct instructor in the Art Department at Peace College, Raleigh (1997 to 2009).
