Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
Woke up early morn scampering to find all the knickknacks that once filled up my backpack. I emptied it since March early this year and retired it into a forgotten corner of the house. The quarantine’s end wasn’t in sight, after all. All the things that I think I might need when in the office were all lined up on my desk — they are the following:
- water tumbler
- coffee tumbler
- laptop computer
- notebook and pen
- battery pack
- digital pouch
- toiletry pouch
The bag? Yes, it’s nowhere to be found. I was about to check a mountain of luggage one by one and thankfully, Jaycelle was half-awake to tell me that it might be in a box full of bags. There it was, my old army green friend.
The value of a photograph doubles over time.
At the moment of a moment’s capture the value to the owner is close to zero.
It’s only for sharing directly to someone.
It’s only for posting indirectly to an audience.
It’s a smile-maker or a cringeworthy cue.
Its value to machine learning is immense and future-proof.
Its value to content aggregation is in-valuable.
And in the day after, while being stashed away it brews.
And in the day after next until another generation is born a moment captured is a moment created.
All of my internal and external hard drives are being consumed by media files like fungus to a rotting tree trunk. I confess that I’ve been hoarding files from my camera that never see the light of day (or get shared to people involved).

Now, there’s no need to hesitate in shooting RAW and 4K!
