illogical lessons of Anna Karaulova

When I shared my previous article about lessons learned from my book workshop, Liz Vaughn commented on my social media shout-out: "For me, having been a graphic designer, the straightening and improving habit is ingrained". Her comment really resonated with me and provided some wonderful food for thought; due to my training and work experience... Continue Reading →

Sub-atomic Landscape

I am working on a new series of sub-atomic landscapes, which is a place/condition/state that we really cannot fathom.

The real goal is to develop a lumenescent print that emphasize how the colors, shapes and forms change as the viewer's perception of the artwork... Continue Reading →

DSLR surprises?

Recently when I wrote about being surprised when I returned to the studio to find a totally unexpected as well as unimaginable landscape, I was poked about being surprised about the resulting images. If I were on a commercial shoot, I would probably being evaluating each frame, as a client is not going to pay... Continue Reading →

Trabuco Flats – still evolving

Trabuco Flats, 2018 copyright Douglas Stockdale After recently making the changes to move my website operations to SquareSpace, I have been taking some time away from working (photographing) my Trabuco Flats project. Some needed reflection time. When I find myself unsure of how a project should look (revisualization), I think it is best to slow... Continue Reading →
