I have made it a practice not to look at websites or blogs of photographers who do what I do. It can make a person crazy and insecure. I have learned over the years to let that stuff go, and look straight ahead at my own creative ideas and dreams. It’s worked, because lately that little shoulder-resting gremlin fear has been kept at bay when I sit down to work.
I do, however, love to look at fine art photographers. There is some incredible stuff out there and it inspires, inspires, inspires.
Jeremy Geddes must not sleep. I’m thinking these ideas must come to him in dreams and he has to hop out of bed and into the studio.

The whole “levitation thing” (mine own is here) is winding its way through the fine art photography world. I really love creating it and putting it all together in Photoshop is more fun than it should be. I think London photographer Louis Lander Deacon does it best. He’s 19! Holy moly.

Zena Holloway is the master at underwater photography. If you see advertisements where people or products are floating in ocean bubbles—that’s Zena doing her thing. I really can’t picture myself suiting up in wet suit and heading in with a huge casing around my camera! I do love looking at it with awe.
Amazing stuff, no?
I had a fine art shoot the other day that involved many shades of orange. I’ll let you ponder what the heck that means The finished product will go up on the bloggity blog next week. I did take note that I was such a happy camper working with the models I had stalked (twin redheads whose mom was the coolest) and all of the props I had gathered around town. Personal projects are the answer for me…getting that loud and clear.
