As you can see by this flyer, I will be giving a lecture on the tools, the techniques, and the post production, of photographing canvas artwork for use in other mediums.
I do want to be very clear here. If you take your art seriously, I want you to know that real photographers take their art as seriously as you take your art. … What does that mean? It means that the photographer has put as much work in mastering his art, as you have in mastering yours.
Still, this lecture will be a comprehensive overview of all things related to copy work. So comprehensive; in fact that anyone with the tools and the patience should be able to shoot their own works for some secondary uses.
This past Thursday evening, Alexander Salazar Fine Art brought Walter Redondo, and his art to the Zanzibar Cafe. The art remains on the walls. … Pop on down for a cup-o’-Joe and a bite to eat, while you check out Walter’s art. You will have a good evening in the San Diego Gaslamp district.
The evening was filled with snacks, a little wine, and many interesting people. Walter brought his family. They were wonderfully happy, taking it all in.
The three people on the Shoe Shine station, are, Alexander Salazar, Greg Regan, and Anjela Piccard.
Alexander is the owner of Alexander Salazar Fine Art Galleries in San Diego. He is working hard at bringing local artists to the eyes of people that need art. This is a link to his website. Alexander Salazar Fine Art

The Gompers Prom was a small affair at The “W” hotel in San Diego. Obviously, being a Prom, everyone was dressed to the “9’s” And, they were all having a great time.
They had asked for an old time backdrop giving them an isolated setting.
So, I brought one of my 12×24 drops, a stand, and some clips to hold everything in place. For the setting, I chose a darker colored drop because I wanted the people to be the brightest things in the image. Unless you want a lot of overpowering white space to write text on, like in a magazine, I think the a bright background would detract from the eyes. … I like eyes. 😉
When we were setting this young woman into place for this image, she leaned over as she is in this image, trying to hear what I was saying. I thought it was very cute. … When we were actually shooting, I pretended to say something so that she leaned over trying to hear what I was saying again. … 🙂 Bam! I love my shutter releases for catching candid setup shots.

It was a wonderful event, where a set of models are presented mid-room, and is ringed by artists plying their art. … If you have a chance, you should come down. I am eagerly expecting another beautiful evening in Balboa Park.
