Backdrop of '89

The custom backdrop +Sam Breach painted made me go back into my archived to find the last backdrop I painted. I came across this image. This was for an album I gave my sister for her birthday with pictures of all of her best friends.

This was painted with a sponge, It was in '89, in the basement at my parent's house. And the aperture was not open enough. But hey, it was the film days. Harder to iterate and learn!

You can see that I was already into water splashes, but as my budget only afforded a single flash... you have the trail of water in the air!

Aiming high

I have been having some fun with my lighting while playing "basketball-dad" by the side lines.

So here is a long pose (1/30th) with a speedlight on each side of the court. To complete the blur, I played with my zoom while my son aimed for the basket.

A throw of light away

It took the very talented +Lauren Mindel only a heartbeat to accept posing for me, after I suggested some experimentation with a string of LED lights. She also happens to pass quite a bit of that talent over to my daughter, as her dance teacher!

It is always a pleasure to meet in real life those creatives whom you have been interacting with for a long time. Tonight I had the pleasure to finally meet in person +Derek Kind, who came visiting the Bay Area.

Not to forget mentioning +Elizabeth Hahn and +Kurt Harvey who made it all the more fun!

I dunno.  I invested in Bluffs and I can pack the umbrellas (head and all) and be set up in ~10 minutes.  30 if I have to do a backdrop.  My old ones were a nightmare (I think CBS) so I'm prejudiced too.

Oscillations

Here is another image with dancer Lauren Mindel from our light painting experiments.

It turned out this one was more strenuous than it appeared. Try for yourself, holding your back strait, putting tension into the string of lights and create an oscillation. Then repeat multiple times.

Hi, dear +Eric Raeber I'm deeply impressed - how you can imagine - we have a international and although very young talented group here in our next biggier city. They performed "MOMO" and I loved it. I think before I found you with your great pictures about modern dancers and with the great film and work about PINA BAUSCH,  I won't have found to the modern ballet - thank again for it!

Higher gears

Three gears on one side of the handle bar... Seven on the other... It is on his sister's bike that he practiced switching gears. There was so much to concentrate on, that the color of the bike did not matter one iota! But I am not sure how long that will last.

Introduction
My Story

I have always loved photography; for early on and despite the odors of developer, stop and fixer baths. Dodging, burning and retouching with a paintbursh dipped in black ink were all necessary to reach the results I wanted.

Since '82, I have always had a camera more or less close by. In the years that followed, Picasa, Gimp, Lightroom and Photoshop took care of the odors.

The first big push in my photography has been a summer job with a pro photographer in his studio. That made me reach two conclusions:
  1. I love that art and will continue for a long time.
  2. I love it so much that I will not make it my profession.
The second big push has been Google+. The feedback from all of you; The ideas; the styles of photography and the stories behind are all challenging me beyond anything I had envisioned possible. And Chrysta Rae's scavenger hunt has pushed my even further.

You might say that I am still searching for my style. But what I enjoy above all in my photography as much as in my job in the software world, is exploring the unknown; learning new skills; finding a pattern, a structure or a solution that is pleasing to the eye.

The two styles of photography I like most?
  • Conceptual portraiture, with images that are created to convey emotions about people or society

  • Dance photography (inspired by the work of Lois Greenfield and Richard Calmes)
Thinking of circling me?

You will get mostly photography. And mostly my own. You will get art (at least I'll try). You will get technical behind-the-scene photography. Finally, I will occasionally share the work of other: work that I respect, that amazes and that inspires!

You will also get some dose of humor, with serious bit of sarcasm and self-derision.
