Backstage

If wearing pointe shoes isn't comfortable enough, give it a try underwater...

Swinging under the Sea

Two weeks back I took down the play structure we had in our garden. This resulted in two swings that I thought I could put to good use. Only the aesthetics weren't there: all plastic. For Iara Mandyn to defy gravity underwater, we needed more of a classic look! So I took out a saw and a drill. 15 minutes later I had the "vintage" swing I needed. Bonus points: it actually floats up!

Wow so simple! I figured she'd have to hold that pose to keep the water surface still! Thanks as always Eric!

A Wild Ride

This past Saturday, when I drove by East Palo Alto, it was street sweeping day. When I saw this horse next the garbage bins in a driveway, I had to stop and ask the resident if I could give this animal a second life. Little did he know that I intended to drown it the next afternoon in my underwater photo shoot with Iara Mandyn for my summer series "The Underside"!

+Thomas Mims it is definitely having a better time giving rides to mermaids than waiting next to the garbage bins!

I have never been able to dive right in, exhibiting such joy with house chores!
 
And you: which location of your home are you happiest to vacuum?

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.
