Hi guys! As I learn more about design concepts, marketing, and practice more on Adobe products, I decided to share my results on my photography blog. After all, these are also an extension of art too, interpreted from the imagery in our minds. I’m not sure if I’ll keep including them on my main blog feed, as I am concerned that it may indirectly lead the focus from photography to somewhere else. For now, I’ll share it here and and later on I’ll create separate categories for my various projects. Or perhaps create an adobe platform to put them in. It doesn’t make sense to keep my images locked away and no one can see them. Art should be show to inspire and allow others to gain new ideas from other artists.
This particular artwork I want to share is for a fictitious company I made up called Sepia Biotec Industries. It is a simple ad making people aware of who they are and what they do. I’ve created this using Adobe Fuse, and Photoshop. The design is sooo simplistic, yet it says a lot.
I thought it would be fun to share this with you. For my last Illustrator class, my teacher wanted us to create Hunter ads using public domain photos, and the design was pretty much left up to the students. I decided to carefully select and use my own photographs; which I felt were perfect for the ads. Ads can really humble you, because they remind you how color combination is EXTREMELY important, not just from a design perspective, but just making sure that everything is legible. Permission was granted to post with Hunter logo. This was actually a lot of fun Here is what I cam up with:
Mindy Veissid & RA Friedman put together a very nice video conference (at B&H) about how they became photographers. Both are actually beautiful stories, and I recommend anyone who’s thinking about becoming a photographer to watch this video. They also talked about the current project they are involved in. Although this is somewhat a long video (slightly more than an hour) it’s worth watching. A lot of what they talked about I’ve mentioned in my blog. Well spoken video. I wish them luck on their project. Enjoy.
After I left Madame Tussauds, I decided to go directly home. As I was walking towards the train terminal I started to hear some nice music. I could not really figure out the genre of the music. I’ve noticed that nowadays a lot of musicians are mixing up their styles of music; I can’t tell what anything is anymore. I guess technically it would be indie music I guess. The music came from a two subway musicians that are in a band called “Inti and The Moon.” It is interesting because although their literature states that their music is a mixture of Latin-south American rhythms, as well as jazz and middle eastern; however, when I heard it, it sounded more like a mixture of Mexican guitar and hints of Incan melodies in the background. Their style of music is quite nice, I liked it the moment I heard it. I liked it so much I purchased their CD. The CD is called “Strange Constellation.” It’s a very mellow and relaxing type of music (just about all is instrumental). I tried going to their website printed on the CD, but it doesn’t appear to be working right now. However, I did manage to find a couple of their youtube videos. Many of them appear to be rehearsal videos. I discovered they have remade one of my favorite old Spanish melodies/songs the CD; the song is called Moliendo Cafe. Here is another video of them performing live here, these guys are very talented. I really liked how they performed this music. If you are culturally diverse as I am, it is worth giving these guys your support. Although their website doesn’t appear to be functional, here is additional contact information that is printed on the CD:
I’d like to thank Art Of Intuitive Photography for making all of this possible. Just in case, if you’d like to see our photographs live at the gallery, they will continue to be on display until May 18th. Please go on Art Of Intuitive Photography to get address information. I’d like to share some quotes that we’ve written. The question was “What does Intuitive Photography Mean To You?” I feel we all gave such interesting and inspiring answers, and I would like to share some of them with my visitors:
“Intuitive photography is capturing a moment. It’s a slice of time that causes the mind to craft a story or invoke an emotion to make it relate-able, even if the reality isn’t known.” -CK Lowry.
“Intuitive photography is an observation point of my own photographic process, making me pay attention to what I am doing.” -Pico Garcez.
“What does intuitive photography mean to me? It’s about quieting the mind; it’s about abandoning all technical rules and camera jargon for just a moment, long enough to see the story in your subject.” -Anthony Heywood
“Intuitive photography is entering a moment, having your heart captured, your imagination ignited, and your soul stirred – inviting the viewer to enter that singular moment.” -Connie Vasquez.
“Intuitive photography means seeing the world through different angles and unconventional perspectives. It means giving less obvious interpretations to the everyday images in our lives. Taking the common and making them uncommon. Taking the ordinary and making them extraordinary.” -Walter Schuppe.
“Intuitive photography is the instantaneous knowing of what speaks to me externally, merging with my internal sensibilities. The ultimate culmination occurs when the shutter is pressed.” -Sepia Prince.
