I have not been on for the last few days. As you can see I’ve been busy. Compositing is something I want to learn and this photo is one of my first. The previous two I simply added a few clouds, but this one was very complex, to me that is. 

I actually like how it turned out, though it is rough and, like any beginning attempt, reflects my inexperience. Nevertheless I am happy with it and have learned a great deal.

I never really called myself an artist, though anyone who makes art is one right? While making this it occurred to me, after missing meals and staying up to the wee hours of the morning just to get a little bit more of this finished, that I might be one. 

Right now I’m a bit tired, and very hungry, but satisfied in a way that nothing else can. That is a good thing. 

This is a bit different for me. I am excited and nervous at the same time. It’s important to expand yourself and get out of your comfort zone. 

I am doing some product photography for a local artist. Tansu is the name of a wonderful shop in Oberlin, Ohio. Not only is Tansu the name of the shop, but the name of a method of traditional Japanese cabinetry. The artistry and beauty of each piece the artist and owner creates is nothing short of amazing. Each piece is unique. I strongly recommend visiting Tansu. They also have a website: http://tansu-oberlin.com. I am doing some product photography for a local artist.

I like art that is simple, though sometimes what I end up creating is not. It’s easy to get caught up in the glimmer and shinny lights, and allow them to blind you to what they’re supposed to be illuminating. In this case, I hope that I was able to simply illuminate the beauty that is already here.

Thank you

Thank you Photos Worth Seeing for the reblog of my photograph. I am humbled and grateful for it, thank you. Also thank you everyone who liked my picture, and who followed my blog, I sincerely appreciate your support!

Elegance is simple. It simply is. It doesn’t need to be loud to draw attention to itself, it simply does. It doesn’t need to advertise it’s beauty, it simply is beautiful. Elegance never tries to be what it already is.
