Hello again!  I hope this edition finds you and your family enjoying what is left of the Summer season, and spending some quality time together in the great outdoors.

In June I spent time assembling commissioned art pieces,  participating in the Art Affair on the Square in Rockville, Indiana, scouting out new locations to create artistic images, helping preserve a 1945 German Newspaper by photographing it for a business client, and instructing a beginning Photography Class for the Swope Youth Summer Art Programs where I enjoyed helping a great group of kids learn new skills with their cameras.

Much more is in store for next month's agenda!  To stay updated with the latest information about these upcoming events, follow me on Social Media by clicking on each appropriate link at the bottom of this newsletter.

Tip of the Month

Hold your camera steady

It might seem like a no brainer, how many ways can you hold a camera? But it can really change the outcome of your photographs. “Camera shake” is a common problem among hand-held cameras, resulting in blurry shots and frustration on your part. A good way to avoid this is to place one hand under the camera and brace that arm’s elbow against your ribs, this will give you more stability. Another option could be to use a tripod. Just find what works best for you. And if you’re blessed with a steady hand, lucky you!

Chosen by jury process to be one of 55 art pieces displayed at the Swope Art Museum's
71st Annual Wabash Valley Juried Exhibition
Treasured Moment
Terre Haute, IN (Vigo County)

I was commissioned by a client to create a landscape style image at the lake where they live, and design a custom art piece to hang on the wall of their living room. She requested mirror like reflections in still waters and her husband included in the picture enjoying his favorite pastime of fishing. There is a great deal of planning involved in this type of request. The first step was to complete a site visit which included taking test shots to determine what elements to include, where I wanted his boat in the scene, the best angle, time of day and weather conditions. After watching the weather for many weeks, several additional visits to the location, aligning our schedules, and my subject and I being very patient on the chosen evening waiting on wind conditions to be still and the "planets to align" I captured this moment in time. In the foreground of the image you can see his lure dropping in the water as he cast his line. This completed art piece consists of a 24"x36" exposed aluminum print float mounted 1/2" off a sheet of bronze acrylic.  What a wonderful memory to pass down to their future generations!
