Harry Sandler Workshop a real "Brain Filler!"

Those of you who were at Harry Sandler's workshop this weekend know what I'm talking about when I say I'm on brain overload! There was great info shared on processing and, on day 2, printing. Wonderful work by Harry and guest instructor, Teri Lou Dantzler.

Know that Harry's exhibit at the Renaissance Fine Art and Design Gallery (http://renaissancefineart.blogspot.com/) at the corner of Main and Rangeline in Carmel is on until October 2.

You'll see Harry's stunning photography -- both iPhone and Big Boy Camera -- elegantly presented. And if you're from the rock and roll generation like I am, you'll see the icons of our generation captured in remarkable poses, often with ironic expressions, and in familiar venues. A truly remarkable stroll down memory lane.
I shot the image above -- a black 1936 Cord A10 -- during day 1 of the workshop when the class went out into the street for Carmel's annual Artomobilia Car Show. It was absolutely a stunning show.

Morning Glory

Photographing the morning glories in my back yard is an annual ritual. Recently I was treated to a light rain just before sunrise and so these little beauties were freckled with fresh rain drops. This first is pretty much a straight shot, made with the macro lens on the Olloclip attachment.

All I did to this was sharpen in using PhotoForge Usharpen Mask. After posting, I experimented with this black and white version, using Simply b&w and cropped a little tighter. I like the result.
