From the Masters, Ernst Haas

Studying Ernst Haas, I was blown away by his color work and reflections. The way he used color was complex and thoughtful and that made me pause and think more about how I use it in my images. I love how he describes photography in these quotes:

"The best pictures differentiate themselves by nuances…a tiny relationship – either a harmony or a disharmony – that creates a picture.”  

“You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes.” 

“Every work of art has its necessity; find out your very own. Ask yourself if you would do it if nobody would ever see it, if you would never be compensated for it, if nobody ever wanted it. If you come to a clear ‘yes’ in spite of it, then go ahead and don’t doubt it anymore.”  

Please follow my dear friend Maria to see her take on this month's artist. I love what she captured! 

 

 


Free Lensing Circle January

January 25, 2016  •  5 Comments

 

After a beautiful unusually warm November and December, mid January we were finally hit with snow, at least 25 inches stormed down on us. Some of these photos were free lensed the morning the storm hit. A few more, in the days after as my kids enjoyed the huge amounts of white surrounding us. I can appreciate the beauty of the snow more when I photograph it, so I try to do it often. Otherwise I am just complaining I am COLD, because it is so very COLD out! brr....

now please follow the circle around to visit my friend Cynthia's gorgeous work
