Capturing the Canvas in a Photograph – A Lecture

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.

My SmugMug Gallery site has been upgraded.

I am very happy to say that my SmugMug galleries have been upgraded! Wahoo! I have been wrestling with those demons for the past few days. Now, I can say that I am happy to have upgraded!

A photograph is almost always yesterday’s news, “History.”

Almost always, but photographs can also twist our minds a little. As captured moments of history, they can be islands, a physical island capturing the fleeting moment in a bubble of crystalline time. While the real moment continues its way moving deeper into the past of our lives, drifting further from our conscious mind. Even now, we can watch the captured moment recede into the darkness of our lost memories. … The island of the photograph, like a time machine, can transport us to that moment, forever.

Not only can the photograph transport us back to that moment, that photograph can transport anyone who views the image to that very moment, no matter how far into the future they are viewing the image. The children of your children’s children can see, and experience, the moment you have been captured in.

I have been a working photographer for a long time. … With various side trips into Live Theater, Lighting, New Media Journalism, Teaching, and Computers. … Those tools help me in my work. … I like to help find the beauty in all people, places, things. And, I like to post those visions into the future.

Your photographer friend,
