The next pinhole day is April 26, 2015 – Will you be ready?

Between now and April 26th, I’ll be talking about pinhole cameras, pinholes, zone plates, and many other topics around pinhole photography.……Each year of the event I create a poster that you can download and post so that others can know about the event.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU ARE

Like it or not, each image you create reveals a little more of what you think, what you see and who you are.

To Caption or Not To Caption?

If I have to explain it, it isn’t free to do its thing………The viewer brings their own history to the table. It is best when they are forced to think.

Documentary V Fine Art – Photography

Art is more than person, place or thing. It is a triggering mechanism for introspection. The subject shown is not what the image is about. Art takes the subject and twists it into new meaning. The things shown, their relationships, the way they interact with the light, produce a new concept to ponder.
