I want to welcome all my new blog readers we’ve added in the last few months. I like to think of this blog as a community where I get a chance to tell a bit of my story, teach a little here and there and most importantly get to know you, the reader. So feel free to make the blog a part of daily diet and share your thoughts.
Reminder, the Drobo giveaway is live until September 23.
I was recently interviewed by Aaron Patterson over at Capture Café. He’s a great guy and he asked some wonderful questions. To read the interview click HERE. If you’re new to my website and would like to know a little bit more about me then feel free to stop by my About Me page.
I almost failed art class. I almost failed drafting class. Yep, it’s true. I stink when it comes to anything that requires dexterity, creativity and my hands. I’ve always been incredibly jealous of people that can paint or draw. I’m mean the ability to take a canvas and paint something like “Starry Night” just fascinates me. I guess that’s why I collect paintings…;) I’ve read a lot of blogs on photography and the argument is – is it art? Recently, when I was doing my workshop in Yellowstone I was reviewing one of my student’s images and I said let’s edit this one. The image, after a few adjustments, became one of my favorites. She turned to me and said, “You mean you saw the final image in your head before we even edited it?” Yep, I sure did. I had a vision or direction I saw the image needed to go in order to be “finished.” I guess one could argue the image is our canvas and Lightroom is our brush. I tend to be in the camp that photography is art. What do you think….art or science?
