Black and White Landscapes

"Photography Articles"
Telephoto Lenses-By definition, a telephoto lens is one whose focal length is greater than that of a normal lens.
Viewing Photo Masks -A photograph with strength and impact should be much more than a random snapshot.

Photograms -A photogram is the simplest kind of photograph to make. You don't even need a camera or enlarger.
Lords of the Landscape- The field of outdoor photography gives us not only a seemingly endless array of subjects to put before our lenses, but multiple artistic and technical ways to do it. As we move into the 21st century, many of us choose color photography-both digital and conventional-as our creative medium. Some photographers, such as Michigan-based Monte Nagler, have opted to express themselves monochromatically and carry on the time-honored tradition of black-and-white.

If Al-Qaeda intended to change the United States by their inhuman acts on September 11, 2001, they accomplished what they set out to do.  Americans took the bait and President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their cronies took advantage of our fears to begin to reshape America in their own vision.

Under normal non extreme lighting conditions the modern camera of today will give a well balanced exposure for highlight and shadows, in some circumstances fill flash will also improve things further but where flash is not practical editing techniques in your photo editing software will  enable you to fine tune the exposure short falls in the highlight and shadow regions to produce a well balanced image

How do I fit into the cosmic order of things? How can I apply history and myth to my contemporary and seemingly unremarkable life? With our imagination, can we dissolve the mundane perceptions that veil ultimate reality?

Many artists and photographers often struggle to make a living. They may work in the advertising or editorial fields or they may sell originals via galleries in the fine art market. They may be printmakers, illustrators or simply commercial photographers trying to create an additional income stream.

On Shooting Animals...My photographic career capturing wildlife, stretching from the swamps of the American Deep South, to the untamed barren steppes of Africa, across crystal Himalayan spires, and submerged with man-eaters along Australia's Great Barrier Reef has left me little time for human relationships. There was this one voluptuous blonde housewife years ago, back during a photo assignment to capture some covered bridges in Wisconsin. She and I had a single passionate weekend and had our mingled ashes sprinkled.

Combining photography with my painting has finally been what I was always looking for. I would say that it has become an obsession! I like the fact that I can create anything that I want and still look for innovative ways to work with this medium. I've always liked to be "different" and there is no end to the possibilities. I believe that every piece of Artwork shows the mental/emotional state of the artist at the time of creation- which of course is influenced by the energies that are around at that time.

I am presently a "Contributor" to "Digital Photographer and Creative Imaging" Magazine which comes out monthly. The work I do for the magazine is Fine Art biased, creating pictures which are a combination of Photo and Painting, (Real or Digital) tutorials and reviews.

by Scarlet James



Scarlet : When I first saw the work of Jane Andrews on Pixiport I presumed her images were digitally manipulated as they are so intricate, clever and masterly executed.

Then when I learned they were oil paintings, I was even more impressed.

They are Power Full and in the nicest possible way .. weird and wonderful....fantastic fantasy .. or they???

Daguerreotype Vintage and Modern Photography


  Several aspects of the daguerreotype create a lure and mystique not found elsewhere. Whereas contemporary mediums use an emulsion of silver crystals on film and paper that create various degrees of "grain," the plate is one solid sheet of silver and photons of light react at the molecular level that cannot be seen without the aid of a scanning electron microscope. In other words, awesome detail and tones unmatched by anything since the daguerreotype was invented. Also, the final piece is metal and each daguerreotype is one of a kind and cannot be duplicated.

Haiku Photography by James Austin


  Why are photographers exploring haiku? Creating a haiku poem challenges the artist to observe the immediate moment with care, just as photography does. Nature photographers in particular are drawn to haiku to capture beautiful wild moments. Street photographers too find vivid glimpses into human nature in this art as well.
