LW1023 - Large and Small Strategy

Tue, 23 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Over the decades of our artmaking life, we'll have a limited number of major projects - exhibitions, publications, etc. How do we keep momentum if the major projects are somewhat scarce? Having a strategy for both large and small projects can help.

LW1022 - Obstructions

Thu, 18 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

I was recently asked my opinion about the new electronic viewfinders in mirrorless cameras. Unexpectedly, this question led to an interesting thought process that clarified for me why I never use a viewfinder.

LW1021 - A Glaring Oversight

Tue, 16 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

In all the reviews I've done over the years, I've never once been asked an obvious question. I'm often asked about exhibition possibilities; I'm always asked about book or magazine publication; but never once have I had a photographer ask about digital publication. In the age of the Internet, doesn't it seem like this would come up from time to time? How odd that it never does.

LW1020 - Hesitation

Thu, 11 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

Pre-game jitters. Launch hesitation. The calm before the storm. Whatever you call it, it can be a part of the art life, too.

LW1019 - A Definition of Fine Art Photographs

Tue, 09 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

Just as a rough aid to my process of thinking when I'm in the field, I find it useful to divide photographs into three types: Memory aids; Objective documents; Comparisons or relationships.

Here is an excellent technique I learned from David Bayles that can be incredibly useful for finding a project in your images that you might not even know is buried there.

LW1017 - Triangulation

Tue, 02 May 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

I've discovered a word that perfectly expresses why I am so excited about the six-image project concept - both for Seeing in SIXES and for my own work. That word is triangulation. Multiple-image projects allow us to triangulate toward an idea and add information that clarifies the concept behind the images.

LW1016 - Gimmicks

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 00:00:00 -0700

The recent rage in photography is to create some never-before-tried gimmick that makes one's work thoroughly unique. But do gimmicks make our artwork good? Or is it just a ploy to make our work noticeable?

The pace of life seems to be going faster and faster - at least when compared to previous generations. That would seem to be true for art and entertainment, too.

LW1012 - What Can Be Taught

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 00:00:00 -0700

(image)

One simply cannot teach artistic expression. You can teach the tools that are used by artist's, but artistic expression is essentially not teachable. This is why YouTube is so filled with camera discussions and so few discussions about artmaking. The question is not what do you want to use, but what do you want to say?

The camera is one of the greatest excuses to gain entry to places normally restricted. The relevant question is not, "What do you want to photograph?", but rather, "What do you want to learn about?"
