It’s been awhile since writing or posting here at Behind the Lens. I’ve been spending more time posting work at my website, smokephotographist.com – Please visit my website if you haven’t already – I post new photos there quite often, and sometimes, discuss photography trials & tribulations, and success – what worked.
On the 21st, I went around looking for some new light fixtures, and I ended up taking a few urban still life shots.
OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES
Organizing my OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES, Sci-Fi photography collection has been coming along. I have all but a couple artworks on display at SMOKEPHOTOGRAPHIST.COM, and archival prints are available for sale at my gallery at Imagekind.com.
This is a collection of Sci-Fi influenced art-photography. The scenes are both landscapes and seascapes of imaginary worlds – planets, from the past and the future. The images are a combination of Photography – Miniature Objects – and, Digital Effects. This is my longest running art photography collection and one that I will not put an end-point on. My main inspiration of doing this series is from Science Fiction stories, like Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, and from Science Fiction television shows, such as STAR TREK Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine (my Favorite of the STAR TREK franchise), and Enterprise; SPACE: ABOVE & BEYOND (tied with STARGATE Universe as my favorite Sci-Fi series); BABYLON 5, and STARGATE Universe. There is no doubt in my mind that as I come up with new ideas and motivations, I will continue to create works that go into the OFF WORLD – ALIEN LANDSCAPES photography collection.
ENTANGLEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY SERIES
I recently joined FineArtAmerica.com and have published at my gallery there, my new ENTANGLEMENT Photography Series.
This series is about Abstract Expressionism Photography. It is a little difficult to give details of all the piece because each one is different in their irregular shapes and colors; it is better if you go and see the artworks. In short, these works come from the deep recesses of an “Abstract Mind.”
I recently updated my People Photography page at my website, and that is an on-going project as new photographs are taken, or, as I want to highlight ‘oldies-but-goodies’.
That’s Wa’Tup around here.
