Julia Anna Gospodarou-1041

Introductions: Julia Anna Gospodarou

One of the reasons I am so excited about the next issue of Dynamic Range is because I got to interview a woman that I have admired for quite some time. I love her architectural work and so for you today I am giving you a little glimpse into the work of Julia Anna Gospodarou. I’m sure you will love it as much as I do. There is an amazing quietness to the work. Those of you who have been following me for some time know that I love that in work and it is something I try to get in my own. Hushed tones. While I tend to think of her as doing more architectural work she does do other things as well. I love the photos she has of snow. Another one of my favourite subjects. You could almost say another quiet subject. Her long exposure work is a great inspiration to me and I’m now reading the book that she co-wrote with Joel Tjintjelaar, FROM BASICS TO FINE ART, in the hope of getting …

MM 2-43: Monochrome Madness Curves

Here is the first theme for the year and what a great reaction to it. It has been wonderful seeing all the curves being sent in. A wonderful selection of images. I’m sure many of you have noticed that the post is 24 hours late, I’ve decided to reschedule it, and this will be the new time from now on. We will announce the next theme next week. I had hoped to get into the city and get some images of this bridge, but it just didn’t happen. I did take this earlier this year, and I think it is still curves, so this is my response to the theme.

Introductions: Beth Moon

Remember that friend of mine, you know, the one that is always introducing me to many great photographers? Well the photographer today is another one she also introduced me to. I would now like to introduce you to the amazing work of Beth Moon. The work is really stunning. While I was able to get permission to show her work, I wasn’t able to get her to answer the questions. She is well known for photographing ancient trees and from what I can understand she travels the world photographing them. I took this from her website, it is her artists statement. Many of the trees I have photographed have survived because they are out of reach of civilization; on mountainsides, private estates, or on protected land. Certain species exist only in a few isolated areas of the world.  For example; there are 6 species of spectacular baobabs, found only on the island of Madagascar. Sadly, the baobab is now one of the three most endangered species on the island. The criteria I use for choosing particular trees …

Latest News and Photos from Melbourne

It seemed to go down well last week combining the Bits and Bobs post with the Weekend Wandering one. It seems that time is becoming something that we are all struggling with and with so many places to go and see work it almost seems selfish to post too often. I am also enjoying have more time to work on my photos and promote myself on other platforms. Dynamic Range Magazine I have to start with this, only a week to go and it looks like we are all set to publish issue 3 next Sunday. It was a hard one to get together, but we got there. It looks fantastic and, if I say so myself, the best one yet. We are so excited about what is in it. There really is something for nearly everyone. I like it having lots of variety. I have part of the cover for you. It looks great, and we are so lucky to be able to showcase some of Julia Anna Gospodarou’s work and I was also …

MM 2-42: Monochrome Madness

Welcome to another week of Monochrome Madness. The weeks seem to be flying this year, I wonder if they are doing the same for you. I can’t believe January is almost over already and our first theme is next week. Next week it is our theme: CURVES My image was taken last Sunday morning when I went into the city to do some long exposure photography, but it was raining, so I took photos of other things. I have talked about this one in a blog post on my other blog, Silent City.

Influencing Us: Self Portraits

Today every where you go people have their phones out, some on selfie sticks, others arms outstretched to take a photo of themselves where they are. The selfie seems to be a massive phenomenon since the advent of mobile phones. However, if we consider that the portrait, before cameras, were painted, then it seems that many artists have been doing selfies for a long time. Of course, artists were the only people who could do selfies back then, as you needed to be able to paint or draw. It seems to be something that nearly every artist did, a self portrait, and it is good to see that they are still around. I thought today we could take a look at some of those self portraits. Some of them are straight forward portraits, while some are done in a very artistic style. I am just going to leave you with a gallery of the self portraits today.

MM 2-41: Monochrome Madness

Another week, and another Monochrome Madness, seems we aren’t far off the second year anniversary. Just a reminder that the next theme is the week after next and is Curves. The reflection of the old in the face of the new. I like that. I took this image on a wander around the city a couple of weeks ago.
