The Hardest Working Editors

As we all know Art comes in many forms, one of the hardest and most beautiful has to be Sculpting.  The other day I was thinking of editing in terms of photography and even audio on my pc, and while thinking of how hard it seems sometimes how much harder it should be to create a sculpture from a rock.  That must be editing in its highest form, and that’s how this Youtube playlist of sculptures was born. The hardest working editors ever.

How would you apply any of these skills and techniques towards photography or your form of art? Since I consider myself to be an Artist in the making I am pondering this question from sculpting and other forms of amazing arts.

 

Sculpture – as per Wikipedia.org

Sculpture is the branch of the visual arts that operates in three dimensions. It is one of the plastic arts. Durable sculptural processes originally used carving (the removal of material) and modelling (the addition of material, as clay), in stone, metal, ceramics, wood and other materials but, since Modernism, there has been an almost complete freedom of materials and process. A wide variety of materials may be worked by removal such as carving, assembled by welding or modelling, or molded, or cast.

Sculpture in stone survives far better than works of art in perishable materials, and often represents the majority of the surviving works (other than pottery) from ancient cultures, though conversely traditions of sculpture in wood may have vanished almost entirely. However, most ancient sculpture was brightly painted, and this has been lost.[2] The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark, has done extensive research and recreation of the original colors.[3][4]

Sculpture has been central in religious devotion in many cultures, and until recent centuries large sculptures, too expensive for private individuals to create, were usually an expression of religion or politics. Those cultures whose sculptures have survived in quantities include the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean, India and China, as well as many in South America and Africa

 

 

 

Flying Over Downtown – Aerial Photography

Learning how to fly over Downtown Orlando, Florida for the very first time pic #2

Here are just 2 photos from my very first flight around downtown, getting a drone with a great camera is an amazing way to fly.

 

Aerial Photography – as per wikipida.org

Aerial photography is the taking of photographs from an aircraft or other flying object.[1] Platforms for aerial photography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or “drones”), balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, pigeons, kites, parachutes, stand-alone telescoping and vehicle-mounted poles. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically; hand-held photographs may be taken by a photographer.

Aerial photography should not be confused with air-to-air photography, where one or more aircraft are used as chase planes that “chase” and photograph other aircraft in flight.

 

Let’s Explore a few Photography Genres

Landscapes, Portrait, Fine nudes, Travel, Wildlife or nature, Uncategorized, Macro, City, Architecture, Fashion, Still life, Conceptual, Street, Photojournalism, Underwater, Black & White or Monochrome, Family, Night, Sports, Staged, Abstraction, Air Photography, Fine art, Astrophotography, Color photography, Flash, Photonovels, Pictorialism, Social documentary, Vernacular photography, Panorama

The photography family has so many branches that you can get lost in one and never experience all the others amazing things you can explore.  For a long time, I’ve heard and read that to be a great photography you must pick one type of photography, create a signature look and people will buy your work or hire you to do much more of it.

But if you haven’t explored more then just a few how do you know that this is the one for you. So that I say let’s explore more than just a few photography genres and see which we love the mores. For the new few months, I will be exploring Aerial Photography. To help me with that I’ve purchased the new DJI Mavic Air and will be sharing new photos here and on my Instagram account very soon. Which will you explore?

 

 

How Your Camera Works


This is an amazing slow-motion video that will show you just how your digital or film camera works. Not much for me to explain the video will show you all you need to know. I’ve loved photography for many years now, and the more I learn of how it works the cooler I think it is. Check this out and then check out the Slow Mo Guys on YouTube they have many other awesome videos.

Digital Double Exposure

This is my very first time playing around with double exposure, these were done using Snapseed on my android pixel. I’ve taken a whole lot of photo as a hobby but yet I’ve never done any kind of double exposure digital or otherwise. These were several photos I shot this week where the sunset and the street lights kind of matched so when they come together they make something awesome to my eyes, I love these double exposures so much I think I might start creating more of them in Lightroom with my some of my older photos. myfotolife.com/double-exposure
