Filmmaker Ryan Freeman Takes Image-Making Lessons From the Subject of His Short Doc

Ryan Freeman’s short film “Soul” documents the work of landscape photographer Jakob de Boer. Shot with a Canon 5D Mark III, Freeman tells Fstoppers that he learned a lot about image-making from his subject matter.

“I learned from Jakob to take some time to let your mind and art breathe before previewing or continuing to work on it,” says Freeman. “He taught me that there’s a growing process that needs to occur within yourself and that you need to process the experience… So I did so and found that I was able to reflect on my footage in a more profound way than I had before.”
