Brooke Shaden : Recent Travels: Death Valley and Texas I always considered myself someone who never got to travel that much. Being from the northeast coast of the United States, it was common to drive through lots of little states but never really see them, or to vacation in on the coast which looked quite like all the other states. It didn’t really feel like traveling. But lately I’ve had the opportunity to go places. 2011 has been a good year for that, and I am making sure that 2012 is going to be even better. This year I’ve been to England, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington & Texas to name a few places. Two weeks ago, on a complete whim, I drove with my husband and close friend to Death Valley.
Retro Atelier F or the sake of bringing structure into the heap of material we executed through the years, we divided the scope of our activities into four stretches of time. The first section, for convenience is called the «Victorian period», embraces our imitation of early photography of the second half of the 19th century. The images of our favorite style Art Nouveau (alias Modern, alias Jugendstil, alias Secession) of the last refined and elegant style in our opinion. The second section is Art Deco , the time of urbanization, revolution, emancipation, electrification, automobilization and many other «...tion».
Demersal on the Behance Network The collection of the latest photos of the young artist Luka Klikovac represents an exiting and creative play of colored fluids. Through his camera lens he reveals realistic and tangible space where wondrous motions of strange forms occur, thereby creating psychedelic effects. The author is fascinated with the diversity of surreal depths and spaces created by unpredictable laws of motion of colored fluids. His imagination, artistic sensibility and knowingly caused "randomness" in a glass of water, lead viewers to an endless adventure, full of surreal and timeless scenes. When experimenting with light Luka Klikovac creates an illusion of the polar illumination that springs out from hidden fountains.

www.onetrippass.com/blog/ Colt Miller and Logan Caldbeck of Corbra Rock Boot Company show us how they make their beautiful and unique South Highland leather boots out of thier shop in the small West Texas desert town of Marfa. When furniture designer and maker Joey Benton of Marfa, Texas had a surplus of beautiful leather left over from a job, he made lemonade by making sandals inspired by footwear of the past, where there were no left and right. Here he explains the idea behind the sandal’s design and speaks about the wild possibilities and limitations that are part of living in the remote west texas desert town of Marfa, Texas. Primo Carrasco supplies the soundtrack and demonstrates how to break in these beautiful sandals and make them your own. Last year while touring the country with her husband Chap, Maura Ambrose had a 1970 VW camper van induced vision of what she wanted out of life and that vision was is the name of natural dyes and quilting.
micmojo scrapbook …maybe a slightly different series of pictures this time – maybe not. On one of my recent pictures I got a comment that it had a bit of a Gregory Crewdson feel to it… so I googled him and was blown away by his work – what he does is way out of my possibilities in so many ways… (if you are interested, search on youtube for his work and you will see for yourself) ….yet, I felt tempted to pay “his world” a little visit – and take my pictures there and see what happens… I used three Tungsten Fresnels (with a filter to mimic daylight), the lamps I found in the room and the window light… which was all in all quite a mix in color temperatures – it looked ok as it was – but you never know how the camera records it…..the film handled it quite well and produced a slight retro look. I tried to create a little series with the images I would have chosen … at the end I included other images I found ok… let me know if my choice was off …

Photography Tips for Ameteur Photographers I’m sure each and everyone of us were pretty excited when we first got our DSLR. I mean, who’s not right. And the next thing most of us will do is – start abusing the shutter and snapping non-stop. That’s just how we learn. Photography is a beautiful form of art with no hard rules.

Simon Bray Over time, photographers develop their own personal style, through the way they choose to light their images, the form and composition of their work, the equipment that they use and the post-processing decisions that they make. However, for each shoot, a photographer will make a decision about the style of the images needed. Working in a certain style needs to be intentional decision to represent your subject in a specific way. This may be because you feel it will maximise the impact of the imagery, or because that is how your client has asked you to present the photographs.
