This is a cottonwood tree below a beautiful cloudscape a few years ago. Image was shot with one of my Panasonic Micro Four Thirds cameras. Later, I edited the raw image in Lightroom and just recently exported it to my iPhone 4S where I ran it through an iPhone app that creates the sepia, grain, dust and scratches. It’s called Scratchcam! This may be an effect that some people don’t like, but for me it communicates how I feel about my art and the intuition that I share deep inside with my images. I think it’s awesome that digital technology has come such a long way that we can now edit images from an handheld device. I’m having a blast shooting images with my iPhone 4s as well and enjoying the art of what they call, iPhoneography. If these new changes to photography are revolutionizing the way we view and capture the world, then I want to be at the forefront of this photographic rennaisance instead of sitting on the sideline.
Just before entering the visitor center at Coronado National Monument near the Mexican border. The land is strong, barren, burned but beautiful. Even a scorched tree stands against the blue azure sky. This feels like No Country for Old Men. lol
A dead pine tree leans against a living pine and all the clouds point to the subject. This is what you call a lazy afternoon in the mountains as I wander through the corners of God’s imagination through white painted aspen.
With each passing day many undone tasks remain unfinished and then as the years progress these forgotten projects become the remnants and ruins of our civilization. My photographs are indicators that our time on this planet is very short and we tend to leave behind a lot of unfinished work. If you have property or a farm in the Southern Utah vicinity don’t be surprised to see images of it show up on my photoblog. I photograph the human landscapes from public streets and sidewalks on a daily basis. Everything is fair game.
Both are needed to bring happiness in one’s life. I’m surrounded by beauty.
It’s finally feeling like summer today but the temperature drops as a storm comes rolling in tonight. Tomorrow brings cold rain.
I’m attempting to use a narrow depth of field to convey some sort of impressionism here. Let me know if it is working? I’m new to this style of photography. . .
A stunted Juniper on a hill. Look at the direction of the clouds at the same angle as the branches on the tree; that’s what I noticed and why I took this shot. This also has the feel of the movie; No Country for Old Men.
