First Time Out of the Box by WishmasterAlchemist

This has a good concept, well captured and has a strong impact. The depth of field is great, it simplifies the scene and uses its eleme...

Winter Update

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 10, 2014, 7:35 AM
So a lot has been going on since my last update. I lost my job with Montana Museum of Art and Culture due to campus wide cutbacks. Thanks Obama. However I was able to get work study after a lengthy process for spring semester so now I just need to find a job. I had a great fall semester in classes working in the darkroom again. I also have been working on my digital painting skills in Photoshop so I'd have to say it was a productive end to the year. Most of the work I did are parts of several projects that are underway and will be posted hopefully by the end of this semester. 

Which brings up the bad news. The day after Thanksgiving, my family had decided to go to a nearby hot spring during the weekend when our car was run off the road by a drunk driver. Everyone survived, but the drunk driver broke his back in two places, while the rest of us ranged from just bumps and bruises to broken arms and severe concussions. My sister took the worst of it and has lost her short term memory. While she has trouble tracking conversations she is recovering most of her retention. The driver that hit us was three times over the legal limit, had three previous DUI's, a revoked licence, and was driving someone else's car. Right now we are just trying to recover physically and financially so we're not pressing charges YET. Last part of the bad news, my brand new D7100 and 200mm lens got smashed to pieces in the wreck. So no photos for quite some time. *Wanders off into the distance...*

TheWanderer2030's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Photography

Thanks to deep research into the life and techniques of Ansel Adams, I learned that the most valuable tool to an artist is the mind’s eye. In poetic licence, it is comprised of past experiences recollected by the use of the imagination, as to a camera recording light through the use of creativity in a moment in time. However, no matter how vivid images are produced by such mediums, they are marred by imperfections. To the mind, its imagination is only limited by its ability to hold memories in linear thought and what its focus was in those moments. This is similar to the camera, its clarity of its captured moments is determined by the cleanliness of its parts and how its lens is focused.

To look through the mind's eye is like to see the world through a lens. When the opposite is true, then to see a photograph is to see into one's mind and soul. I believe photography is important because it opens a window into the subconscious, where mankind's true potential is hidden away. Photography allows me to tap into this potential, where I can interpret its meaning and uses to better the world.
