Fine Art Photography- Myth or Reality

Fine Art Photography – Myth or Reality

We often hear people calling themselves fine art photography maestros, but are they actually what they claim to be? Over the years the digital photography has taken new turns and achieved milestones that seemed unattainable. Anyone can take a great picture with a camera, however, how do they convert their photography into art.  People say that there is a fine line between photography and art, although we believe that these very photographs can be converted into pieces of fine arts […]

I Got the Same Old Blues (J.J. Cale cover)

I Got the Same Old Blues – A Musical Experiment

Just for the sake of whatever interest there may be… This is an old experiment I did about five years ago — the purpose of which was to judge the viability of recording and producing an album ‘on the cheap’ in my own poorly equipped home-studio, all by my little lonesome.

The (what looks to me to be a rather flimsy, thin and fragile) wire ring, which the umbrella ribs attach to at the top point of the umbrella, snapped upon opening it. The umbrella is no longer usable. It’s entirely FUBAR. What’s really frustrating is that it was hardly […]

Flakey models by the spoonful

The Worst String of Bad Luck I’ve Ever Had With Models Flaking

I’m currently going through what is, by far, the worst string of bad luck that I’ve ever had with models flaking on me. It’s nuts! N-V-T-S – NUTS! I hope it breaks soon! Man! I’m about ready to just give up. I really am. So, let me tell you the story, Man: This past June I get a message from a model whom I’ve never worked with before — right out of the blue (it happens quite a bit). She […]
