The Answer Is KAWS  

Answering your photography questions… by far the most popular of them relate to getting your work into galleries or seen by museum curators. Lets talk about that. Leading a creative life means being creative in other areas as well. I think this is vital to photography or any of the arts for that matter. Photographers tend to chase careers that are decades behind us. The answer is KAWS. KAWS is the moniker of contemporary artist and designer Brian Donnelly who works out of Brooklyn. If a graffiti artist can have a career like this, what are the possibilities for photographers?

The First Photograph  

The first photograph ever is a heliograph made by Nicéphor Niépce in 1825 of a rooftop in France. Its an extremely early example and the oldest surviving object in the history of photography. Despite my close relationship with this photograph, I have never actually seen it in person – until now. Come along to Austin Texas and see the earliest surviving photograph in history.

My Travel Camera Setup :: Manfrotto BeFree Live  

I've recently started using the Manfrotto BeFree Live as part of my travel vlogging camera setup. I've used Manfrotto tripods for years but I've never had one that travelled well - until now. The BeFree Live folds down extremely well - you can fit it easily as a carry-on for airlines, but it still has the height and durability to use in standard photography applications. If you want one of the best tripod options available for travel and vlogging, this is it.

Casey has been an enormous influence on the work that I do, but more importantly he completely changed the entire scope of inline video. This is just a quick thank you.

Some questions from Photo Assignment #1 and a little motivation.

Photography Assignments 1 :: Variations  

The first in our series on photo assignments deals with the concept of variation in photography. Objective: it expand your capacity for creative thinking. Edward De Bono suggested that often we develop habits based on our minds ability to store equations to solve problems. If we want to do X – our brain selects a way we know how to do it. So how do we change this and force new “equations”? This is what we will discover in this assignment. Edward De Bono :: Lateral Thinking http://amzn.to/2fk1Dp6
