“I just read a post by someone on Deviant Art, saying that IF your artwork generally gets ignored (online) it is because it is not unique enough. I would disagree with that. I see a lot of overly done subjects (e.g. flowers, etc.), which get all kinds of love (for some reason) from many people.

I personally don’t understand how so much average artwork gets so much attention. I’m just saying.

Maybe people just prefer cliche art that is accompanied by poetry, or personal anecdotes (The Recipe)? I don’t know….inquiring minds want to know.

Must I conform to that recipe to get more attention? I’m not one to conform. Never have been.

One thing I do agree with, according to that Deviant Art author, is to ‘Do work that you like!’ Yes. I do, do work that I like. I would hope I could convert many many viewers to ‘like’ my work. However, that may not be the case. I will stay true to myself. If along the way, I get sooooooooo ‘popular’ that I don’t know what to do with “all of that popularity” (The Problem), WOW, wouldn’t that just be nifty!

However, in my (working on) 13 years of blogging, I haven’t really had that problem, LMAO!

☆ My “Grateful For” statement for today: I am grateful for the people who take time to look at (or read) my blog (and my artwork), and who appreciate the detail (and chaos) and uniqueness I attempt to design into each piece—Thank You!

It is now raining. No need to water my trees and plants, I am also grateful for that too!”

Photography Everyday?

“One question I get asked sometimes is, “Do I do photography everyday?””

“The simple answer is, ‘No’, I don’t photograph subjects everyday.

In fact, sometimes, one, two, or even three weeks may roll by between the actual process of photographing things.

I know, that is ‘BLASPHEMOUS’, some other Photographers may exclaim!

Well, here is my reasoning: IF, I photographed everyday, I would never get to the actual creation of Art Photographs that I do, and my photographic art pieces do take (considerable) time to complete.

I already have a backlog of RAW images that I need to edit and work with. Maybe other Photographers need to be photographing everyday, but I don’t! I already have enough RAW images I need to work with, and I can only do that if I am at my desk, working with those images on my TAB (or a computer) and doing the ACTUAL creative work to design images for my various series.

So, ‘No’ is the answer to that question. When I run low on RAW image files, or, if I just want to go take pictures, then, I grab my camera and hit the streets to find new subject matter. Nevertheless, I am always composing images in my mind, and photographing images in my mind as I walk around: It is a habit for me.

☆ I do always carry my camera with me, as that is PHOTOGRAPHY’S FIRST CARDINAL RULE: ‘ALWAYS HAVE YOUR CAMERA WITH YOU’!

However, that does not mean that I always take my camera out and capture photographs for nothing. In my opinion, a subject REALLY needs to POP-OUT at me and grab my attention, or look VERY interesting for me to compose a picture with my camera. It is just the way I am now, with my photography.

Photographer’s Statement:
“Seeing common items from the opposite side of glass, especially privacy refracting glass, gives me an incentive to design photographs. I imagined this looking like a very interesting image from a X-Ray machine.”

Where the Darkroom Safe Light Concept came From

If you have ever worked in the Photographic Darkroom, then you know how GREAT it is that there is a thing called the Safe Light!

A Safe Light allows the Darkroom Technician the ability to do some operations of the printing process, in some amount of light. If you have done work in the darkroom, you may not have fully appreciated this invention, but perhaps we should! I now appreciate it more probably, then I did when I was a Photographic Darkroom Technician, and Photographer doing work in the darkroom. At the time, I just took the technology for granted. Now, I know there is a long history to this single, useful, darkroom aid.

“In 1800, Dr. Herschel’s “Memoirs on the Heating Power of the Solar Spectrum” were published, and out of his observations on the various effects of differently coloured darkening glasses arose the idea that the chemical properties of the prismatic colours, and coloured glass, might be as different as those which related to heat and light. His suspicions were ultimately verified, and hence the use of yellow or ruby glass in the windows of the “darkroom,” as either of those coloured glasses admit the luminous ray and restrain the violet or active photographic ray, and allow all the operations that would otherwise have to be performed in the dark, to be seen and done in comfort, and without injury to the sensitive film.”

The Father of Photography according to John Werge (1890).

“Charles William Scheele was born at Stralsund, Sweden, December 19th, 1742, and died at Koeping, on lake Moeler, May 21st, 1786. He was the real father of photography, for he produced the first photographic picture on record without camera and without lens, with the same chemical compound and the same beautiful and wonderful combination of natural colours which we now employ. Little did he dream what was to follow.”
