Part two of : Working as a team at Flatbed Press. My day of trial proofing photogravures included a 4″ x 5″ print dear to my heart. This print began on the grounds of the La Romita School of Art in Italy. I took this image while wandering through the olive grove and peekingContinue reading “Cane da Pastore on View at the O2Gallery and Project Space”
I used my iPhone on a trip to Maui to create this capture of the Baldwin house in Iao Valley. I knew I wanted to depict this image in a manner that made you feel the early history not only of the home, but of the ancient landscape. Working as a team at Flatbed PressContinue reading “iPhoneography to Photogravure”
It is always good to look for inspiration in the creativity of other artists. I just visited The Tarot Garden in Italy with the amazing work of Niki de Saint Phalle. Photos do not do it justice, you MUST see this garden in person. The towering sculptures beckoning you to come, touch, hear, see. TheContinue reading “The Tarot Garden”
I’m currently on a trip to the La Romita School of art in Terni, Italy. I had my iPhone handy during a tour through the adjoining olive grove. While looking over the rock wall surrounding the property I had one brief moment to see the sheep next door before the ever dutiful herding dog movedContinue reading “In the Olive Grove”
(Photo)Toasting Koi. I have enjoyed the PhotoToaster app lately, with all of its great choices for iPhoneography. I am on vacation and couldn’t pass up the beautiful Koi on the grounds where I am staying. This image I processed with the “pale” function. I had so much fun rendering my Koi images – I amContinue reading “Toasting Koi”
I do love revisiting older iPhone images captured after finding a new app I like. First I used PhotoToaster, which offers a lot of processing options and effects, saved it to the camera roll, then processed the new rendering through Instagram. This is an old tricycle I saw through the window of an abandoned homeContinue reading “PhotoToaster Processed into Instagram – Apps for iPhone”
I am on a workshop with TJ Avery and Marti Jeffers in Big Bend National Park. Working on site with a group of like-minded photographers is the best gift I could give myself. After 25 years, I still have so much to learn with new equipment and new challenges. Although a seasoned photographer in theContinue reading “Star Photography and New Learning”
I never tire of daydreaming of the visit I had in Paris. I thought I would reminisce with you by sharing the “Ligne No. 4” sign at the metro station near the Flower Market.
Things are rolling, next up for me is an opening at A Smith Gallery in a juried photography exhibit on “America”. Click here to see the accepted images. The juror is D. Clarke Evans, President of the Texas Photographic Society. Go for a drive in the hill country of Texas for a nice getaway, stopContinue reading “A Smith Gallery to Exhibit “The Naked Cowgirl””
I cannot give enough thanks to Marti Jeffers and Will Austin, both instructors extraordinaire, for the recent workshop in Santa Fe. The classroom time was invaluable for honing some photoshop techniques, and the hands on help during assignments was attentive. Fun was had by all participants and the week was very special. The photo belowContinue reading “Santa Fe Workshop with Marti Jeffers Photography”
I’m just getting started in Santa Fe with a Marti Jeffers Photography workshop, “Spirit of the Southwest”. We’ve had a small bit of spring snow and everything seems so enchanted. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the week will bring. Also good to be breaking out the Lensbaby again with my newContinue reading “Santa Fe”
I ♥ Congress was a busy night in Austin, Texas and thanks to Austin Details for featuring one of my iPhone images from Kauai.
“Romance” was in the air at the ASmith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas for the month of Valentine’s. This juried exhibit featured my black and white image from the Pompidou Restaurante in Paris – which exudes the romantic dining experience.
