Retour a la Raison Photography is Elvin Knight.
My first camera was a Spiderman point and shoot that used 126mm film. By my senior year in high school, I was the photographer for our newspaper. My parents gave me a Canon AE-1 Program for Christmas and I was hooked.
As with many of us, life eventually got in the way of my creative pursuits. In 2017 I met Vdb Nudes (model and photographer). She inspired me to dust off my gear. Based on her suggestion, I attended a workshop hosted by a few incredibly talented photographers. I was hooked again.
This journey is just beginning. I’ll use this site to post the good, the bad, and the ugly. Please share your thoughts - good or bad. Hopefully be the bad will be kindly stated.
The goal is to make art that inspires. If you’d like to collaborate, please drop me a line. I have several ideas that I hope to bring to life in the coming year. I’m also open to helping others bring their vision to life. Let’s get together and capture beauty!
BTW - I chose Retour a la Raison as pseudonym for a couple of reasons. If you’re a cinephile, paying homage to the 1923 film was an unintended benefit.
