My question is, "If an image has no real subject (no lines, textures, objects, etc.), other than color, does the color become the subject? If so why?"Continue

Profile Information

About Me and My Photography Experience:
Love photography, been doing it for over half a century. My favorite thing to photograph is "Nouns." If it's rusty, beautiful, has curves that stops traffic, bright colors, or clouded in fog, and everything in between, you'll probably find me photographing it.
My Photography Equipment:
Everything from Large Format to digital, lighting is "Whitelightning," PC w/Photoshop using CS6 and mega plug-ins. I'm pretty much a Canon shooter with two DSLR's and a few lenses, sorry no "L" lenses yet.

What is your Oeuvre?

Posted on November 25, 2014 at 7:55pm 3 Comments

If you don't know what oeuvre is I would suggest looking it up. Someone once told me that the mark of a master photographer is having a large collection of high quality images within a given genre. Well I have that in several genre's and looking to fill a few more in the near future. No brag just fact - about 40,000 images of Venice, Italy as one example.

If you have a collection of images of one subject, is that collection noteworthy? What I mean is, do each of these images stand the…

Graffiti is it copyrighted when it's done illegally?

Posted on September 4, 2014 at 1:55pm 7 Comments

Graffiti is world wide, it's in every city in one form or another. Some is outstandingly gorgeous while others are sick and disgusting. My quest and query here is to engage in conversation with others the rights of graffiti producers under the copyright issue and my photographing the graffiti and selling it as a collective - hence not as just one image. An example would be in a book or even as a magazine article. I fully comprehend that they (the artists) own the copyright but since the…

Snapshot Vs Photograph

Posted on December 29, 2012 at 4:04pm 11 Comments

I pose this question, 'What's the difference between a snapshot and a photograph?" I would appreciate some seriously thoughtout responses to help me better understand this concept. Thank you for your time.

"I Love Photography" A Painters Perspective

Posted on December 22, 2012 at 9:15am 2 Comments

Hello fellow photographers,

Hot off the presses my new book on photography (from a painters perspective) has arrived. This book is not about F-stops and shutter speeds, it's about rethinking how we see - visualization. It starts with the human eye's physiology and ends with a wonderful intellectual chat on photography, with lots of information about color and seeing in the middle. This book is totally different than any other photography book you've seen before. Very few images, lots…

Not seeing "Assignments".

Where?

Robert thanks So much for your comment I have one more question if you don't mind? What light meter should I purchase? Also is there any free course I can take to learn how to use the light meter? thanks again, L.J.

At 3:00pm on March 18, 2015, Stu Marks said…

Thx Robert. 

I friended specifically to be a part of your Bob's Photo Group. I see a lot of good information there and I want to learn more. It says that it's open so I'll assume no further steps are required to join.

Thx again.

I can't say for sure, but there's a possibility I may be able to get to Amsterdam,and perhaps to Venice. It would be great to meet you, and I'm going to try my best to make it happen. Watch this space!

At 4:42pm on March 8, 2015, Peter Hanson said…

Thank you so much Bob.I feel so fortunate to have so many good friends across the Pond, and having met Janna, makes me want to meet you all. Who knows? Maybe one day!!

At 3:02pm on March 7, 2015, Peter Hanson said…

Bob I would just like to thank you so very much for perusing (that's a good word) my pictures, and for your lovely comments. You've really made my day. To get comments as good as the ones you made is really great,and I really appreciate them. I'm only beginning to understand photography, and as for dealing with Photoshop, I haven't a clue!!! I think my "passion" is light. I just love playing with lighting, to try and achieve what I actually see, if that makes sense.

Many thanks again. Peter
