Welcome back everyone. Hope you had a wonderful long weekend. Wasn’t the weather just spectacular? Epitome of summer as we know it for this year
Please enjoy a gallery series image from Rice Lake called Sunset. It will be a limited run of reprints that you will be able to find in our Online Gallery. Currently working on a site to bring you a full and diverse range of our Fine Art Prints. They make awesome gifts and look wonderful enlarged or made into a canvas in your home or office. Enjoy!
I’ve been doing lot of post production from recently shot Weddings and sometimes one can get lost in the mundane work of culling, colour balancing, retouching and prepping images without much thought of what I was thinking artistically at the time when I composed the image and what emotion I wanted to evoke in the viewers eye. As an artist, I think that is one of the most important aspects of capturing the essence of your subject. Hence our slogan: The essence of elegance, the essence of you. And since we shoot primarily people in love, it is with utmost importance to capture the raw emotion of that millisecond and freeze in a single frame. Having the right light, lines, angle, apperture, shutter….et al., play a very important role in being able to make art. Art that people get. A feeling of emotion that one can relate to. So as I was polishing some images I came across this one below. I looked at for quite a long time and tried to figure out what exactly captivates my attention. I gave it a bit of a nostalgic feel, a little mistique of not being able to see the lady, just a pretty smile, a well dressed gentleman being very close to her. The lines of her spagetti string leading your eye away from the smile and back up the mans jacket make it a really well composed image at least in my eyes. So, next time you are photographing a Bride, a toddler, a family pet, think what it is you are trying to convey through your image and focus on the importance of your story telling. Sometime less is more, details unveil the underlying notion and hiding a part of the picture can lead to great imagination. Tell me what do you think?
Over the course of the year, we will be adding Fine Art Images to our blog and a gallery site (currently under construction) that will be for sale. There will be a limited number of prints. So here are our inagural pieces, titled Tatry, The Birch, Droplets and One respectively. Enjoy.
This post is not really photo related, but I wanted to share this really interesting video that I saw on TED. Always intelectually challenging and most fascinating speakers appear to speak about a miriad of subjects and topics. I have blogged about Ted before, and probably will continuously post interesting topics. Here is one from the tech sector by Patti Maes. Integration of devices, amalgamation and retrieval of information analogous to the sixth sense as heard below. Enjoy, and embrace technology. Its good for everyone, not just Geeks[ted id="481"]
