What Are The Borders Between Photography and Painting?
For Sally D’s Editing Challenge My first love as an artist was water-color. The Mobile Monet Tablet App lets me paint my photos with my fingers, which is wonderfully, tacitly satisfying. I’m wondering at what point have I wandered too far from Photography? Anyone?
For My Smartphone photo class I started to write some practical directions before we went to visit a garden I’d never been to. Instead of How-To words a poem came out. They all liked it and the garden was a magical place.
Photographing in the Garden
Look for light shinning through petals or leafs
Look for light peeking
Making shadows that look like something else.
Be a person quietly contemplating
Photograph someone in ecstasy or
Is there a shed, a wall a window all angles and corners
Soften by vines and flowered waiting to be remembered?
Birds and fairies may be hiding here and there
Take note, take their picture if you can catch them unaware
Above all look into the depth of a rose or any other poesy
Take its portrait when you’ve found its soul.
