Looking at the scene with new eyes

“Creativity is always a leap of faith. You’re faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage.” – Julia Cameron

I shared a few of these images here and here before, and still had these in the que or the “to blog and share later” folder. Remember when this place (this blog) was a place I went to every day? It was a place to come back to each and every day to share what I had learned, to share a tip, but mostly, to share an image that I had either worked on that day, or grabbed from that folder I was just talking about. More about that in a few.

Before I get too sidetracked, lets have a look at todays images shall we?

So, as these were waiting VERY patiently to be shared, let me give you the skinny on them again. Its the least I can do…

I was lucky a couple of years ago to have a little time to catch a workshop with amazing John Paul Caponagro. There is a pretty good job I hashed that spelling up, but I’ll link to his work! I went with the intention to get away from my normal workflow and explore a different side of my imagination. As the workshop evolved, I found myself slipping back into the HDR processing as it was my comfort zone. So I decided not to fight it but embrace it. The end result as I shared my mini “portfolio” for critique at the end of the workshop was this collection of a full frame image couple with a dip tic grouping that showed a much different perspective with a completely different process. I did this from every location we went to. As the week went on and I realized that this was the way I wanted to share my work, the very process of looking at these scenes with almost 2 sets of eyes was I think exactly the challenge I was looking for in the first place.

Now THAT was a whole lotta nothing wasn’t it? Anyway…..

So getting back to my absence here, I dive into that a little later in another post or so, but I think its REALLY time to get back to these posts again! With this age of social media and the million and one places to share your work, I think I have been getting pulled from too many directions! Time to focus 🙂

Its good to be back……..
