NEW WORK: May / June

Some work from the last two months using only the iPod and iPad. I am getting more comfortable using the mobile approach. It seemed rather awkward starting out, but now is somewhat easier and I am beginning to feel more in control of the process. I am also trying to do a better job of getting the work out by exploring Instagram, EyeEm, and Esty. All this is new to me and seems to take a lot of time out of the day. However it apears to be what is needed if you want to have wider contact with the photo/art community in the digital age.

Some new collage work I did over the last couple of months. I combined several types of camera images and editing techniques. Processing was done using both ipad and photoshop. So far this combination has worked well for me, but I would like to eventually get to the point of using just the iPod/iPad. In part this is to really learn the iPad apps, and secondly not always fall back to using old ways.

Kat Sloma has announced the opening of her "Liberate Your Art" post card swap. It's a lot of fun and a chance to share your art with artists around the world. I was in it last year and received some very amazing art. Give it a try:

Some recent work from the "Distillation Series". Still trying to sort out what works. All have been shot using the iPod Touch 5G combined with a modified Squid Cam lens. Post processing is pretty simple and just involves adjustment of brightness, contrast and saturation. One interesting thing that I have discovered is that many times I would have not shot the subject with a more traditional approach, and this method has opened up a whole new world for me.

A few works in progress from a new series called Desert Navigation.  Many of the original images are from my residency at PLAYA and were the starting point, but are more complex than recent work in that they utilize pinhole images, lens based photos, texture screens, and iPhone apps in their creation.

Some more images from the series. All were shot using the iPod Touch 5G and Squid Cam Lens (front element removed). The series has been progressing, but I still have to shoot a lot of frames to get a keeper. It just takes time and effort to find out what works and gain some control over the process.

While I was at the PLAYA residency I started a new series of abstract photos. They were shot using my iPod Touch 5G and Squid Cam lens with the front element removed. The concept was to reduce the photograph to its essential forms and  produce a soft focus abstract image. Some of these images were shot during the residency and others were shot after returning home to Albany.
