I shot this yesterday evening. I am posting it right now because, this evening, February 04, 2012, at the Alexander Salazar Fineart Contemporary Exhibit space in La Jolla, Fred Briscoe will be in attendence.
You can meet him, and ask about his creative process concerning general information, or the particular pieces on display. He works in stone and various metals.
And, he is a very nice man.
(Addendum 20120206) By the way. I had met Fred a couple years ago when I was shooting for the San Diego Fine Arts Society’s creator, April Game. The San Diego Fine Arts Society has metamorphosed into artpulse, and April Game is the Executive Director.
This is another image from the San Diego Fine Art Society’s Hollywood Glamour Ball.
In this image, the dancers are moving at a pace far beyond the pace of mere mortals. They are the Dancers. Twisting, spinning, jumping, moving, in ways most of us can only remember as a child.
Dancers lift the spirits by showing us what we could accomplish if only we tried. … I laugh a little at that statement, because it is not really true. We only imagine it is true. That concept of being able to dance is just like people thinking they are photographers because they have a good camera.
Dancing, and any other art, takes time, and dedication, and a gift of innate adeptness.
I think all the people in this image are friends, or work together. At least they know each other through each other with just one degree of separation. … Maybe it is only in my mind. … 😉
Anyway, I was shooting some images of guests, and just before I shot this image of the group, I saw these two women sitting in the dark area of the third floor at Anthology in San Diego. It was the soft light on the red hair that caught my eye.
I then asked them out to the patio area to shoot an image with some of the city in the background. And everyone came along. I had not seen them as a group before I asked the two women for a new location, but as soon as I did, it became this wonderful group on the patio. Of course the women are beautiful, but I also find it interesting that the man with the martini, has no socks.
I am taking everything to April Game today. … And for your pleasure, these are the final sets from the Hollywood Ball. Of course, you can view everything by wandering around in the galleries, but here are a few high points to me.
The Red Carpet portion is now final, moving on to the other sections of this fine event!
Saturday, the 17th of April, The San Diego Fine Arts Society hosted their Hollywood Glamor Ball, red carpet affair. … And a great time was had by all!
I shot this event with two other photographers, Patricia Cabezas, and Cameron Gary. One part of Patricia and Cameron’s duties was shooting the Red Carpet arrivals. This first gallery is the Red Carpet, ONLY, arrivals shot by Cameron and Patricia.
As these images are being placed on the server, I am editing the other sets that will be going up today.
