Influence:
My need to design very dark shades of grey, is inherently within me already, as I love the use of very contrasty Back and White imagery. However, if one Photographer has influenced me with regards to the use of very contrasty Black and White Photography, it would probably be Wynn Bullock (April 18, 1902 – November 16, 1975), who used the effect of very contrasty imagery with much success.

“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.

“The term Milky Way is a translation of the Latin via lactea, from the Greek γαλαξίας κύκλος (galaxías kýklos, “milky circle”). From Earth, the Milky Way appears as a band because its disk-shaped structure is viewed from within. Galileo Galilei first resolved the band of light into individual stars with his telescope in 1610. Until the early 1920s, most astronomers thought that the Milky Way contained all the stars in the Universe….The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy with a diameter between 150,000 and 200,000 light-years (ly). It is estimated to contain 100–400 billion stars. There are probably at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way. The Solar System is located within the disk, 26,490 (± 100) light-years from the Galactic Center, on the inner edge of the Orion Arm, one of the spiral-shaped concentrations of gas and dust. The stars in the innermost 10,000 light-years form a bulge and one or more bars that radiate from the bulge. The galactic center is an intense radio source known as Sagittarius A*, likely a supermassive black hole of 4.100 (± 0.034) million solar masses.”

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.”
