Watching people live their art
The Tiny Desk Contest Is Back!:
I love watching people I know live their art. It was nice to see these guys in a video for the NPR Tiny Desk Contest- follow the link above. I loved hearing Black Masala play at Sehkraft Brewing back in October.
New projects for a new year
I have a few new projects lined up to keep myself busy and creative going into 2017. I want to photograph more street portraits, use polaroids and mix them with digital elements, and try to stay with a fixed prime and one location. I think they'll be "location" based themed projects to start the year...
It's just a tool
I like pairing my written words to photographs that I’m making. I think this blog will take form as it’s being created, I don't want to label it other than a platform for me to think out loud with the work I create, or my view on the creative world I see.
I've been thinking about the difference between what we use and the results we get. As creatives we see things differently. We all have an eye for the subject we see and want to share our view of the story being told. The tool we use to show that passion is just a tool.
I love to geek out with new tech, I just got a new 85mm 1.8 and love it. However, I feel I’m seeing more posts, blogs, and images of the toys more than the work being created by them. It doesn't matter what was used as long as your passion can been seen, or felt with the work created.
