Hello PHOtographers

If you have not started thinking about a final project now is the time to start.
The work should be a cohesive series of 8 images.
Check the Final Project links on your pixelnrg webpage for submission details.

So this week, each day, I will send out 1 link to a photographer for you to look at.

Lets start with
http://www.shizukayokomizo.com/6/4592958791

Be sure to read the letter at the end of the images.

This seemed like a great series to start with living in a physical distancing world right now.

enjoy.

pour a little puddle of the glue on a piece of paper then let it dry, you can form it into a ball and then use it to clean up the excess glue after it has dried.

“When I was a child, my artist mom told me that there was no such thing as bad art. I know now that this was a complete lie. Yet it was a lie I needed to hear. It informed me that the goal of art was the creative process of discovery, experimentation, and fun. To this day, I cling to this lie as truth—especially when my pictures don’t turn out right.”

Speaking: Will Navarro, Sports photographer https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2019/4/speaking-will-navarro-sports-photographer From Professor Mark Olson who teaches the Sports and Entertainment class:

 

Hi All,

 

On this Wednesday night, 6pm (April 10) at Charleston Campus, room E-111, I'll be hosting pro sports photographer Will Navarro. Will just came off a great season with the LA Rams and a run for the Super Bowl and also shoots the LA Clippers of the NBA, events like the Oscars, and more. Should be a very informative evening for anyone interested in sports and event photography.

 

If you and any of your students would like to attend, just have them show up at 6pm.

 

Best.

 

Mark

Welcome Fall Semester 2018 https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2018/8/welcome-fall-2018

Welcome to a new semester. At the start of this new school year we all have goals, hopes, and dreams for our futures (me too). The only way to make it happen is to MAKE it happen! How do you do that? Life creeps in, the kids have ball practice, the car broke down, oh I'm dating this new... 

I keep a Bullet Journal. More than one page is dedicated to my goals. I start with the weekly to do lists. This is updated with what needs to get done, school, work, kids, dogs, some fun (yes fun needs to happen in life) 

Then I think out a month. What do I want to accomplish towards my bigger goals. That then gets scheduled in with my weekly to dos.

Then I think out the semester. What do I want to accomplish it this 16 weeks.

6 month goal, 1 year goal. Write it down, look at it daily. Are you moving towards your goals? If no, get moving!

The goals will get updated and change, that is a good thing, If you are working towards something, and it changes that is because it needs a new direction. Maybe you learned through your exploration it is not what you want to do. There are bumps in the road, you succeed, you fail, but keep working and you will succeed. 

My goals are broken down into, home, work, travel.

What are your dreams? Make them a goal! Then they will be your reality!

Next, go make some photographs!

The Email https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2017/8/the-email Hello students,

Thought I would start the semester off with why a proper email is important.

You are a professional and you want to communicate as a professional.

•Start with a proper greeting

•Include a clear subject line, including the class you are taking.

•If you have many questions break them out in the email so none are missed. 1, 2, 3 etc.

•Be clear and concise in what you are asking. Reference the assignment, written handout or video. Your professors have many classes and many students.

•No text speak. Yes, write out your words.

•Include your name at the end of the email. 

 

Thank you in advance for being thoughtful and clear. Have a great semester.

-Heather Protz, your professor.

Exercise: 1-27-2017 https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2017/1/exercise-1-27-2017 Double Exposure/Multi Exposure:
Shooting two images (or more) in a single frame.

You will need to pre-visualize how the images will blend together. The placement of subjects, how busy the backgrounds are and more. Busy, busy can make a very chaotic finished image. Think busy scene and then a simple scene, try the reverse. Sometimes a little luck will work in your favor.

Darker scenes blend better many times. Lighter scenes you may blow out areas of information. This can work also, depending on what you want to say with your images. What do you want to say? Try shooting the darker scene and then the second exposure a lighter scene. Of course experiment. Light, light: Dark, dark: Light, dark: Keep a journal entry of what works so you can recreate your successes.

Here are some double exposure apps for your smart phone.
•Fused
•Pic Blender Double Exposure
•Hipstamatic, (a favorite app of mine)
•ImageBlender
•Little Photo
•Adobe Photoshop Mix app

•Lets add to this list and share some examples of what we are creating.

Some of your DSLR’s and micro 4/3rds cameras have double exposure/multi exposure capabilities. Explore your manual for the information on what your camera is capable of doing.
Here is a list of cameras that have double exposure/multi exposure capability:
http://www.neocamera.com/search_camera.php?multipleexposure=1

I have been exploring double exposures using the Fuji Instax Mini90. An Instant film camera and then scanning the prints to share online and to print larger. I have to say there is something nice about those little prints. I have also been adding the date on the back of the prints, I thought I would miss that piece of metadata later in the year.

You can create a double exposure effect using your editing skills after the shoot. You can do this in Photoshop and many apps for your smart phone.

Explore and have fun!!!

Inspired https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2017/1/inspired Over my sabbatical I explored and discovered many new artists and rediscovered a few from my past. John Berger who wrote Ways of Seeing A book that had much impact on me and many other visual artists died January 2, 2017. This has brought us many tributes on his vision and passion. If you have not read his book I recommend you do, here is a link on Amazon.

Austin Kleon has put together a link to the BBC television show from 1972 Ways of Seeing that the book was based on. Click Here.

Speaking of Austin Kleon he had a great impact on me over the past year his books Steal Like an Artist and Show your Work are fantastic! Pick up a copy and get inspired!  Here is a link to Austin's website. http://austinkleon.com/

My Photo Walk With David Carol https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2015/10/my-photo-walk-with-david-carol On Saturday, Oct 17, I did a short photo walk with David and eight other photographers in Santa Monica, California. I had been following David for a few years and when this opportunity popped up I jumped at it. He was funny, insightful and full of energy, for his love of making images. I was not surprised to hear his words could have been my words, I enjoyed the experience.

Quote https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2015/2/quote A WORK OF ART is not absolute and autonomous; it’s human, made by an individual for presentation to a world that may embrace or dismiss it, or do neither exactly, or both in turn.  To state the obvious: artists and their art exist within a network of circumstances, implicating families, lovers, patrons, pals, collectors, critics, hangers-on, dealers, scholars, institutions, governments.  The particulars of the context are no substitute for the art itself, but we are curious about them nonetheless - and for good reason.  They situate the artist, complement the art and enlarge our understanding of both.

Skylar Stephens, The Ten (six) https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2015/1/skylar-stephens-the-ten-six -Brooke Shaden http://www.promotingpassion.com/

Brooke Shaden is a fine art composite artist. She has a gift for seeing light and shadow. She operates a blog where she shares her art, process, and ideas. She is very open about the way she works and is willing to share. Despite her bright personality, her work tends to be dark. She promotes the idea that you do not need elaborate props to create art. She likes to bargain shop and also use simple materials to create dresses for herself and her models. She often uses different shots using motion to piece together the final outfit. Most often she shoots with a tripod, with herself as the subject. She also likes to use vertical panorama shots to create her backgrounds.

-Jennifer Thoreson http://jenniferhudsonfineart.com/

Jennifer Thoreson is a fine art portrait photographer and fine art composite artist. Jennifer photographs her objects with the lighting situation of her scene in mind. She will shoot hundreds of objects to piece together in the final series. Her medic series uses objects from World War 2 Technology. The set she constructed in a studio, specifically for that series. Jennifer has a way of building her models into the pose she is looking for. She does not say no, but simply moves to another poses. She progressively stretches her models into more challenging positions. She likes to photograph her subject in natural diffused light. She uses a white pop up gazebo and hangs canvas at the back.

Joel Grimes http://joelgrimes.com/Artist.asp?ArtistID=12191&Akey=P7FJP8B4

Joel Grimes is a Commercial portrait photographer. Joel’s images a crisp and sharp. His subjects are typically shot in studio using a 2 to 3 light set-up. He uses 2 strip lights with grids fore edge light and a soft box over head for fill. He then travels and shoots backdrops and later masterfully combines them in Photoshop.

Human Descent http://www.humandescent.com/
This Photoshop artist simply goes by the name Martin. He combines the faces and bodies of various animals. The results are whimsical and at times frightening. He is remarkably adept at seamlessly matching and blending animals together.

Jerry Uelsmann www.uelsmann.com

Jerry Uelsmann may well be considered the father of composite photography. Before the days of Photoshop, Uelsmann used darkroom techniques to blend images together. It is hard to imagine creating such amazing works without the benefit of a computer.

Maggie Taylor http://www.maggietaylor.com/
Maggie Taylor is an early pioneer of Composite Photographic fine art. She creates surreal, painterly pictures that hardly look like photographs.

Julia Anthony: Top Ten https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2015/1/julia-anthony-top-ten Julia Anthony Favorite Compositing Techniques.

Inspiration: Finding inspiration was one of my most difficult task, I didn't want to feel I copied anyones art. In class, professor Protz helped me explore the art of many artist like Jerry Uelsmann and Jim Kazanjian. Exploring other artist has enabled me to expand upon what kind of artist I want to be. Brooke Shaden is one of my favorite photographers, she is a fine art, self-portrait artist. Her images inspire me because they tell a story, and that is what I try to do. I love the textures and painterly style she adds. I love her technique of photographing as well, she doesn't use flash photography, most images are shot with natural light, and taken at the golden hour.

Textures: for me, textures are the most import part to the finishing touches of my images. I use Jessica Drossin’s texture packs for most of my images, you can make your own as well. Just drag the texture layer on top of your image and change the blending mode to Multiply, Soft light. Overlay or Screen. You can change the opacity to your desired strength and use the brush tool to remove the layer off skin tones if you wish. If I am doing a series, I always use the same texture for each image.
   

When I am in the process of designing one of my images, I only use my own images (except the textures) and blend them together using the blending mode. I never know what is going to look good together. I do love to add birds to all my composites, but not all the time.

Tutorials: Phlearn and Joel Grimes on Youtube. I also get lots of free education from Creative Live.
     
Favorite keyboard short cut for Photoshop: moving through the blending modes. Select the move tool hold the shift key and click the plus or minus key.

Kristen Hansen: The Ten https://www.pixelnrg.com/blog/2015/1/the-ten This semester I am asking friends, photographers, artists, creative people to contribute a list of Ten things related to photography, art, inspiration, techniques, you know, things that motivate them. Here is our 1st list from Kristen Hansen.

  1. https://www.creativelive.com - If there's one thing I know, it's that you should never stop learning. This site has tons of classes - some free and some you pay for - and a huge catalog of topics from inspiration to technique to business. The classes are taught by major industry professionals. It's an essential tool.
  2. http://www.wired.com/category/rawfile - This site is my go-to for seeing new innovative photo projects from all types of artists - commercial photographers, photojournalists, and fine art.
  3. http://www.thisiscolossal.com - This is a true art blog, with photography, design, and anything visual. Their posts are more imagery and minimal copy, and any type of creative would appreciate the site.
  4. http://www.jasminestarblog.com - Jasmine Star is one of the most popular names in wedding photography, and has become a major resource for other photographers who are starting their own businesses. Her blog is full of useful business tips, photo ideas and personal stories of owning a photography business.
  5. http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/reviews.htm  - The reviews on this page are astoundingly thorough. I always check his review before I buy a new piece of equipment.
  6. https://fstoppers.com  - Great mix of art projects, product reviews, editorial pieces from industry photographers and more. It's an all inclusive professional photographer's blog.
  7. http://www.stylemepretty.com - This blog is one of the most exclusive wedding blogs out there. Although it's made for consumers, it definitely helps me keep up on trends in my industry, what brides are looking for these days, and best of all - pose and shot ideas.
  8. http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com - Although I'm not a photojournalist myself, I love a good story. This blog is filled with the images images that have graced the pages of the NY Times and other photo-journalistic projects, old and new.
  9. http://petapixel.com - Another blog with a good mix of inspirational projects, gear reviews, tutorials and more. A good resource for any type of photographer.
  10. http://www.iheartfaces.com - This site includes portrait editing tutorials, photo contests, giveaways, equipment reviews and portrait inspiration. Some of the tutorials could be a bit basic for the advanced photographer, but it's still a good resource for portrait makers at any level.
  11. http://proof.nationalgeographic.com - For me and many other photographers, our first love of imagery started with seeing our parents' issues of National Geographic as kids. Since I also have a passion for travel and travel photography, this blog is inspiring and beautiful, and has great stories along with the images.
