Thank you SE Center for Photography and juror, Dan Burkholder, for including me in this creative lineup of iphoneography images. You may go to their website to view the catalogue.

“The Carnival of Christmas” was taken at dusk at the edge of Zilker Park in Austin, Texas while dark clouds were overhead and trees crowded around below.  A curious juxtaposition.

iPhoneography to Photogravure

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 Press with Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello, and Printer, Cordelia Blanchard, we spent a day of trial proofing photogravures from a solar plate of my image (made with the assistance of Master Printer, Katherine Brimberry).  From that day of press and ink work, one proof was chosen for the final editioning.  Here is our color trial proof (CTP) choice, we will be making an edition of 15 chine collé, à la poupée, photo gravures as soon as my shipment of green Kozo paper arrives.  This is part of a long term series I am working on: Telescoping Landscapes.

It was also nice working with Lola the Shop Dog.

D700 Import to iPhone to Mac for Speaking Your Vision

Embrace the tools around you to create your world.  I recently used my Nikon D700 to capture an image, imported that to one of my favorite phone apps, PhotoToaster, then saved the revised image on my phone. After that – I import back to the Mac and with Photoshop (on a bigger screen) create a top and bottom edge for the dimensions of the home page for the current online publication Aether ART.  Aether ART is a wonderful art source, visit their home page at Aether Art Magazine. All this gave me the freedom to layer and build an image to say what I see, and yes, what I feel.  I have more on this topic later, as I move from iPhone capture to The Art of The Photogravure.

This photo was taken courtesy of the renown printmaking facility, Flatbed Press and Gallery, conveying the image that comes to ones head when day dreaming of printmaking.  Austin, Texas is preparing for its first PrintAustin 2014, be sure to check out all the printmaking events in the next few weeks as featured in this article from the Austin Chronicle.

Happy New Year! Embrace it.

The Tarot Garden

photo(25)

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.  The colors delight and the spaces impress  an unforgettable experience. Crazy, wonky, fun – therefore my image must be crazy, wonky, and fun too.   iPhone image processed with Photo Toaster.

In the Olive Grove

IMG_4826

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 moved them off to safety upon my intrusion.  I processed this image with the app, Vintage Photo.

Sugar Cane Twister

I have a new concept I want to develop using my iPhone landscapes taken during my travels. Here is an example from a recent trip to Maui. The sugar cane burn cloud perfectly resembled a (hometown) Texas tornado. I think these would make awesome photo gravures in sepia ink. Processed with my ever favorite, PhotoToaster.

Toasting Koi

(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 am going to have to visit the fish again tomorrow!
