A Six-Pack of LensWork

LensWork magazine. LensWork is generally considered to be the best publication in the photography business by people like me, i.e., followers of what you might call the old school of photography (no post-modern crap allowed). Well, the distant future turned out to be only six months away; by the end of the year I had two separate portfolios accepted at the same time. I’m still not sure where I got the gumption to submit not just one but two portfolios at the same time. That was great, but the rather immediate success left me wondering what to shoot for next. I’m still miles away from that offer of a solo exhibit at MOMA.  (A guy can dream can’t he?) So I’ve continued to submit to LensWork on occasion. I’m pleased to announce that they have just accepted my sixth portfolio, which will appear in the January/February issue. I am just really lucky that Brooks Jensen (the editor) and company are apparently dialed into an aesthetic quite similar to my own, and I thank them for giving me so much press space over the last seven years. This new LensWork portfolio deals with the subject of books and reading. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ve seen many examples of this theme over the years. Get a look or refresh your memory by entering the word “Lectio” in the search bar on the blog (click here).]]>

POTD: In the Thick of It

POTD: In the Thick of ItIn the Thick of It Bozeman, Montana 2014

This is an interesting image not only visually (I hope anyway) but also technically. It is a color image yet looks very monochrome; but when I converted it to a monochrome image, it looked considerably flatter and less interesting. The subtle off-white shade of the bark on the aspen trees is unsubtle enough to have a considerable impact on the look of the image.]]>
