Austin 2009

Oct 20

I just returned from visiting a couple of great photography guilds in south Texas. Last week, I flew down to McAllen to speak to the Rio Grande Valley Professional Photographers – and of course take in some great Mexican food! Yesterday, I drove down to Austin to speak to the Austin Professional Photographers. What a great bunch of people at both locations!...

Week 32: Red

Oct 19

Heather was flipping through a Richard Avedon book this weekend and was pointing out some of the images. There were quite a few where the subject was blurred and had crazy colors – very sixties-looking. Since following Heather’s suggestions is always a good idea, I had worked up an image in this psychedelic style. I took several images – all with...

Week 31

Oct 13

It is hard to believe that I am down to the final ten weeks of the 40@Forty Project. The year is flying by – but I guess that is what happens when you get old! This weekend I was browsing through my iTunes library and I came across a Paul Simon album cover that caught my attention. It was a very stark – almost geometric – portrait. I decided to...

After a few years of competition, I had gotten merit prints of myself, my two boys and even our dog Annie....

I wanted to create a very antique – almost Old Master- look with a strong, directional light and a limited color palette. I tried to be very aggressive with the brushstrokes, getting increasingly loose as I moved away from the center of...

Week 29: Snapshots

Sep 30

I had this idea pop into my head, but was having trouble sorting out the logistics. How could I chop up the image in different ways and still retain a somewhat visable photographic image? After toying around in Photoshop for a while, I came up with a system and started working. I took 16 pieces of the same image, kept the size consistent, then pieced them back...

Annie, Age 40 (sort of)

Sep 23

I was unpacking my camera bag in the studio this week and noticed my faithful sidekick, Annie, sitting by the door watching me. Not sure what made me think of this, but it occurred to me that she turned 6 last month. Some quick calculations and I realized that she had hit the big 40 this year – if you went by “dog years.” I figured that was a...
