It’s brainstorm time for new photo ideas and directions. After a full year of my photo a day project, I took a bit of time away from shooting.
“Blow the dust off the clock. Your watches are behind the times. Throw open the heavy curtains which are so dear to you – you do not even suspect that the day has already dawned outside.”
The bright ideas have, for the most part, flowed freely during this 365 project. Well, that fount of creative concepts dried up today.
This is riff on the shot from yesterday of the Rotunda in the lobby of the Milwaukee Public Library downtown location. I will often finish processing a shot and then see what crazy off-the-wall things I can do with it. This is the dome from the foyer simply repeated 4 times in Photoshop. Since I am also a 3D animator/motion graphics artist, I’ve been working on incorporating 3D elements into my images.
“Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them.”
–Henry David Thoreau
“You will not be carried to Heaven lying at ease upon a feather bed.”
“Everything has been thought of before, but the problem is to think of it again.”
As a photographer and artist, I’m always trying new things, new techniques, and new equipment so I can continue to improve on what I have done and perhaps create something not done before.
