As I hinted in the about section, this visual site is hoped to be a companion to my words site, www.heartandpen.com. It won’t be a complete match but a somewhat mapping of me and my life and how I am living it.
It is also and primarily a place for me to share what I am doing with photography as I begin my journey into digital picture making. My point of reference is old and film based. This background is forming an interesting platform for me as I experience digital photography beyond the point and shoot phase associated with my little pocket camera, iPhone, and iPhoto.
These are all great tools and are most likely causing more images to be captured today than ever before. Their creative limits are a bit like those of the old brownie cameras vs. film SLR’s, though.
I remember using this camera as a kid to capture auto crash scenes that I had set up with little plastic cars. I heated them up a bit and then slammed them together to get a “realistic” tabletop image. Weird kid…
I am not sure where this blog will go topically but that is the fun of doing this.
