Thank you so much for today's class. It was well structured, demanding, and rewarding. I found that exploring my personal photographic style also led to the realization that choices I've made in my life are reflected in that style--or perhaps the style inadvertantly makes them concrete. That revelation was certainly unexpected. The challenge now is to remain true to the style, or artistic vision, which will require some self-discipline.

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve posted some new online classes. Check them out in the Classes section of this site. I’m moving to doing more online classes for a couple of reasons: people don’t have to commit an entire day to a class and, more importantly, since the classes all have assignments, it’s nice being able to give you a whole week to complete an assignment. So check them out.
Also, if you’ve ever had to make adjustments in post production, I now have an affiliate link for Topaz Labs. I have their software bundle and really like it. The noise reduction is outstanding. So, if you need software like that, be a pal and buy it through the link over on the right hand page. But, in the interest of full disclosure, Topaz Labs gave me a copy of their software to test and use. Still, I wouldn’t recommend anything that I didn’t like or trust with my work.
I’m leading some photography events in the next few weeks, so why not come out and shoot with us? You can see more details over on the meetup group. You do have to be a member to see the events, but it is free to join. We just require registration to help minimize the spam and autobots that we were getting.
Finally, look for some how-to posts in the near future. Between doing those, putting on events with the Meetup group, running the ShootHybrid.com site and the podcast, I am falling behind on blogging. My bad.
But watch for some cool stuff.
Note from Rob: Today’s post is written by Angie McMonigal of Angie McMonigal Photography. We’re each writing a post for the other’s blog and I hope that you check her site out and become a regular reader of her as well.
I’m honored to be exchanging guest blog spots with Rob Domaschuk Photography today! I recently took a class with Rob called Fine Art Photography: Seeing the World Differently through Chicago Digital Arts & Photography Studio. This class came to my attention at just the right time! And lucky me, I got a one-on-one class since it seems most photographers don’t want to spend a summer day indoors…not me, I’m ready for this long, hot summer to come to an end! Continue reading
I’ve been thinking about this one for several weeks now. I held a class a while ago and one of the students asked the question, what was the hardest shoot that any of us had done. I didn’t answer him in class because I loved the question and thought that it deserved some time thinking about. But I did tell him that it would make a great blog post. Continue reading
So this is the third or fourth time I’ve tried writing this damned post. What starts out as a focused thought about one particular thought quickly devolves into a long and convoluted… I dunno… piece of shit rambling. Let’s try again. Here’s this most awesome piece of insight I’ve had about my art and photography in a long time: success breeds success. Continue reading
The poll is closed and I want to thank everyone who responded.
I’m working on a blog post that will incorporate the results!
Yeah, yeah, I know. Another long period between blog posts and another promise not to wait so long. I’ve been lacking any sense of creativity lately and today’s post is my epiphany about it.
But, sometimes, a topic will grab a hold of me and I can’t let it go until I write about it but sometimes I need to spend a lot of time thinking and meditating on that topic. And that’s okay. In fact, the last time this happened, it was something that Tony, one of my Polarizing Images co-hosts, said on another podcast, This Ain’t Iowa. I couldn’t get it out of my damn head and, after talking with Tony about it, our podcast was born. Continue reading
Honestly, I am not what you would call an aficionado of Monet. I mean, I like the work and all but, if I were to win millions of dollars, a Monet is not a piece I’d rush out to add to my art collection. Yet, still, I am becoming more and more drawn to the man and the painter as I learn more about him. Especially his sense of integrity as an artist. Continue reading
Continuing my recent trend of taking inspiration from other people for my blog post, I was reading Kriss Abigail’s latest blog post. The one part that really stuck out for me, and is something I’ve complained about for quite a while now, is the reluctance of working photographers to mentor. She wrote: Continue reading
A Remarkable Challenge for 2012
What does opening a bottle of wine, a photography vlog, my favorite food blog, and the word remarkable have in common?
Quite a bit, actually. Continue reading
Well, it’s a couple of days past Christmas now and, hopefully, you have gotten some new gear or even a new camera. Whether it was a gift from someone else or a gift to yourself, there comes a sense of renewed energy and interest when you get to play with new stuff.
I know, I know… we always talk about how a photographer should be able to shoot with anything and it’s not the equipment, but sometimes we need to get that new camera body or lens to renew our excitement and interest. Continue reading
