With A Change Of Month


It’s that side eye that got me. With the change of month I thought I’d start with some fresh work. I’m still working in my archives and I’ll show you some of that, but not right away. This image is brand new. It combines two stories that I told you. One is a backstage photograph.Continue reading “With A Change Of Month”


Magic The picture is an experiment. The design of the page is an experiment. Maybe all of Storyteller is an experiment. Hard to say. I had a weird thought this morning that was preceded by a dream sometime early in the morning. It ocurred to me that I wasn’t pushing my work far enough orContinue reading

Mystic


Experiments. In seeing and in developing and processing. That’s what I’m doing these days. Mostly it’s due to the new phone. It’s an okay phone but it’s a great camera. I almost feel like I no longer need cameras, DSLR, Mirrorless or even film bodies. I doubt that will happen. Using a phone just doesn’tContinue reading “Mystic”

Still Going…


I was just having fun with this image. This kind of work is always fun, but it’s really just a test in layering. Believe it or not, there are three photographs buried in this final image. The last one makes it look like a dragged a paint brush across it. That’s fun, isn’t it? IContinue reading “Still Going…”

A Blue Thing


Testing, 1, 2, 3… A study in light, color, and form. Created in studio with a three different images everything about this picture is experimental. The layering of three pictures, the color and even the crop. Especially, the crop because the image was originally horizontal. It seems, for now, I’m going to continue to experimentContinue reading “A Blue Thing”


Change With the change of month I thought I would change my approach and discuss a topic that’s been on my mind a lot. Climate change. I’ll do my best to do it through my artwork and my layering techniques. Of course WordPress had other ideas. It’s probably my fault, but the normal column onContinue reading

Really Big Photograph


T his picture was made in New Mexico a long time back. I forgot about it. While I was digging around in my archives I stumbled upon it. I followed my usual rule of thumb. Tinker with it it until I can’t do anything more. I went beyond that. It was a mistake. So, IContinue reading “Really Big Photograph”

Questions


A rant. A slight rant. Mardi Gras parade season began last night with Krewe du Vieux walking through the French Quarter. In all the pictures that I saw I counted one mask, no social distancing. Many of the pictures were made by friends of mine who also didn’t wear masks. I think that in aboutContinue reading “Questions”

Fever Dreams


C onversation. It took me a while, but I finally figured something out. I say that photography and music are very similar in approach. And, they are. But. There is one huge difference. One that matters most. Conversation. When a musician plays with another musician they create a musical conversation. They talk to each otherContinue reading “Fever Dreams”
