Newness, Life & Death in One Scene = Life Also

Posted in New Works

As I look at my newest landscape “Tree Fog”, I see a very much different aspect of my art as it was years ago when I began. Life also contains the various stages-of-life aspects that this art piece does. Even the range of color is, while rather limited, at the same time it is also quite full of shades. As I had set out to capture the fog in some way make it in my style. Due to the processing I may feel the need to do on my images, sometimes it is not so easy to depict an atmospheric mood. After quite a bit of processing hours to get the “visual confusion” just right, I had reached a point where I can personally look at my other landscapes, and rate this as one of my very favorites, mainly due to the intriguing visual confusion this one seems to offer. There is just something about those dead tress… The similarity with chapters, events, history and so forth… of life itself, this piece has even more deeper values embedded in the image itself. We have a past that is behind us. But there is no going back to that youthful or any days prior to the one you are in...

Does the Passion Diminish When It Becomes Your Livelihood?

Posted in Brain Stew

While not everyone, but a whole lot of people have certain things in life they are quite passionate about. For many it is some type of hobby such as collection something, painting, crafting, photography and much much more. Have you ever dreamed and wondered what it would be like if you lived out doing your hobby as your everyday job? And for some, we manage to make some hobby money off of our part time hobby. Maybe its a weekend wedding shoot, or a portrait for one of your neighbors, or do you keep your friends cars running good because you like tinkering with engines. For those that are fortunate enough to live out our passion in our career, we have two options: One, being you get a job for a company that you get to perform and pursue the hobby/job with them paying you. Or the Second option, that you go out on your own and make your own payday and all that wonderful stuff people think happens when you own your own business. For me personally I have enjoyed it both ways, as previously working for a studio do remote studio set up/shoots and as Art Director for Shutterbug Magazine. It allowed me to stay immersed in...

Seasons in Life & Seasons in Creativity

Posted in Brain Stew

We go through life at a pace in which we don’t notice the gradual changes that happen to us until they have already happened. And then we act like we are amazed that we let ourselves get a certain way or to a certain place in life. When we get to those places where we have noticed a big change, then we refer to those time periods in life as seasons. Fot some people the seasons are very long, some can be very short and some can have a mixture of season lengths in their life. Of course I have marked various seasons in my life, but I have also found that I can also pinpoint differences in styles and subjects in my art. And have several markedly different seasons in my creative life as well. In fact, I think its a good thing for an art person to evaluate their work every now and then and see if they think they could improve upon it in some way. And so many times, we seem to even totally change the style or the subject themes we use. As I look back over the years of playing with cameras I can see various gaps in the production of works. And...
