My photography starts with an image and continues as visual poetry – not only to document, but also to arouse a viewer's senses, emotion and intellect. These images are used for prominent viewing in the home and business environment — to enhance mood and harmony. By making use of the dA print services, one can add these to their home and business decor. My interests include landscape, waterscape, architectural, street and documentary imaging.

I am a retired professional portrait and wedding photographer. The professional equipment I have retained is a Canon 5D and a 50mm f/1.4 L lens. In addition, I use a Nikon CoolPix S9900 and an iPhone 5c. These give me all the range I need to practice my photography as of April 2015.

I use an iMac (late 2013) to enhance my work and prefer to use Lightroom 5.7 that resides on my computer. I am as proficient as need be with Lightroom, Photoshop CS4 and Painter Essentials. I also enjoy the use of iPhone and iPad cameras and photo apps.

Interests

Photographers did not invent composition or color harmony – people of vision – certainly artists and architects accomplished these long ago. With that, art history provides the study of objects of art in their historical development and stylistic contexts. Among other things, art student’s study critical thinking, creative problem solving and innovation, education and lifelong learning.

I was not an art student however; I studied photography at a local technical college in the film days. Knowing and practicing wet darkroom work gave me the understanding to use in digital imaging today. Continuing education with professional organizations, workshops and online courses provided the resources necessary to accomplish the work I do today.

I'm big on innovation, so today I'm working less directly in Adobe Photoshop, and more in Adobe Lightroom 5.6 and the associated plugins. Lightroom provides the editing features necessary on my digital images and is also a browser and file organizer. From Lightroom, I can access (Photos>Edit in...) Photoshop for the features I need there, as well as the new plug-ins I like from Macphun Software. 

Mobile 
photography and the associated apps have been creative as well, along with Corel Painter Essentials - all to expand my horizon.

  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: The ringing in my ears.

Amid shots of iPad Air being used in a wide variety of situations, the voiceover, Robin Williams’ English teacher John Keating from the film Dead Poets Society, reads:

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering — these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love — these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman: “O me, O life of the questions of these recurring. Of the endless trains of the faithless. Of cities filled with the foolish. What good amid these, O me, O life? Answer: That you are here. That life exists and identity. That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

“That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

What will your verse be?

RIP Robin Williams
