Diary; July 14th, 2020

Yesterday, July 14th, I took another long hike down into Arroyo Trabuco to work on my pandemic project, or should I say, the series of artworks that coincided with the start of the COVID-19. This urban landscape photograph was made at the start of my journey and part of my ten-minute rule to become creatively... Continue Reading →

March 20 – 2020 Photo #5

So back to a black & white photograph for this urban landscape, #5 in a short "COVID-19 what to do with myself so I don't have huge anxiety" series. Or something like that. I had pre-visualized this spot along my walk in both color as well as black & white, and at this moment during... Continue Reading →

March 19 – 2020 Photo #4

So our COVID-19 saga continues, thus my working title for this photograph is Turbulent Times, and the fourth in this daily series, with #3 here (Photo #3). I foresaw the potential for this photograph in both color as well as black & white, mostly due to the monotone colors of the foreground weeds. You can... Continue Reading →

We have setup a private Facebook group to facilitate this which anybody can easy emulate. FYI, why "private" is only to keep the discussion within the small... Continue Reading →

I think that this one is a sycamore that seems to be slowly falling down and showing its age. Even while preparing to photograph this subject, I was... Continue Reading →

Meditative walk in the canyon

I will have to say that the COVID-19 concerns is taking an emotional toll and one solution to my anxiety is to take a long walk in the adjacent canyon. Since I was one of the few people walking (or bike riding) in the canyon, I was doing my part for social distancing. Minimal social... Continue Reading →

Altered Landscape photographs

I have been writing a series of articles about landscape photography, which I think is equally applicable to nature or urban landscape locations. Most recently¬†after I had been surprised by some photographic results, but then with that new knowledge, to then be able to pre-visualize and photograph similar locations and situations with intention. Someone asked... Continue Reading →

Change of events due to COVID-19

The social changes being made as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted all of my events over the next coupe of months. The book workshop is in the process of being rescheduled for sometime next Fall and once that is sorted out, then the date for the book lecture will be announced as... Continue Reading →

Imagined Landscape

Ann Mitchell, a local friend of mine, just announced her photographic exhibit in Sacramento and discusses her imagined landscape photographs that comprise her body of work. I was very intrigued by her describing black and white landscapes in this context as being imagined and perhaps this resonated with me for a reason; I think that... Continue Reading →
