Lark in the Dark by tanuki_green

I guess you could say I’m a musical person–I used to play the trumpet and the french horn. I sang in a choir and performed in musical theater. I am a Rock Band god. But when it comes down to it, I’m not a musician.

I perform what’s given to me, I can even add my own spin to it, but I can’t just create music. I’ve tried. The best I could come up with is cliched lyrics and extremely derivative melodies. I’ve tried poetry and writing short stories; I’m just not that particular brand of creative. What I can do, though, is take pictures. I love photography and the process I go through that gives me freedom to explore images and present them in a way you might not have seen before.

I may not be a musician, but I’m making music now…it’s just with photography.

Here. Have a ball. Just don’t take it and go home. Well, unless it’s yours I guess, then that’s up to you.

Walls. Barriers. Limitations. Whether they are imposed upon us by an external force or by ourselves they are there. Whether they are keeping something out or keeping something in, they are there. The trick is using these to our advantage. Learn from them.

In my case, I’ll impose a limitation on myself for during a photo shoot to help me be more creative. I was doing a shoot last night where I imposed the limitation of only using one specific lens. By doing this it really forced me to think about they way I compose the shot in the camera, how I use the light around me, etc. It made me think more about the shot I wanted to get and how to best get it.

And I couldn’t be more happy with both the photos from that shoot and with the lessons learned from doing this. It’s a valuable technique from the toolkit.

When you look at this, what do you see? An antique? Outdated technology? A tool? An old forgotten friend? Maybe you see a machine used for writing, or a way to make ideas tangible? Could you look at this and see something repurposed? A conduit of creativity not used, not for its original intended purpose, but something…more?

If you looked at this and saw a musical instrument than you probably already know who this belongs to; Marian Call.

As a way of celebrating the kick off of her first Eurpoean tour, I present to you Marian Call’s typewriter–one of her favorite percussion instruments. I present, also, the idea that things aren’t always what they appear to be.

Moonlight by tanuki_green
Moonlight, a photo by tanuki_green on Flickr.

Here in the Pacific Northwest we have well earned reputation for bad weather and grey skies. We often hear about amazing astronomical things like eclipses, auroras, and meteor showers but because we’re all too often shrouded in layers of thick, grey clouds, we rarely have the opportunity to see what Nature is showing off.

Back in 2008 I heard there would be a full lunar eclipse in the month of February–one of those dark, grey months. I was certain it would be another cloudy night where I’d miss out on one of those rare and beautiful events that I have heard so many people speak of with awe and wonder; when it turned out to be a clear, cloudless night I jumped at the opportunity to break into a new category of photography and try my hand at night shots of the moon. Armed with my Canon PowerShot S3IS in one hand and a tripod in the other I set up and took some nice, long exposure shots.

This one is of the moon nearing its full eclipse.

One of the lessons I took away from this night is to take every opportunity as it is presented. To be honest, that wasn’t the first time I’d learnt that lesson, but that time it stuck and it’s one I keep close to the heart these days.

Feast of St. Crispy 2012 by tanuki_green
Feast of St. Crispy 2012, a photo by tanuki_green on Flickr.

This is a perfect allegory for tonight! This bunny is awesome! This bunny is deadly. This bunny will tear you apart without warning. This bunny is going to tear an opponent apart inside a steel cage tonight! This bunny is the best in the world and demands respect.

But because he is in a purple basket, he gets no respect. And the more he screams about wanting respect, the less people give it. But he is best in the world.

What the bunny needs to see is that respect comes from within first. Respect yourself and show integrity. If you have that, respect will from others will follow.

Seanan's Dolls by tanuki_green
Seanan’s Dolls, a photo by tanuki_green on Flickr.

Happy Monday, everyone. Here’s hoping you had as wonderful a weekend as I did. Today’s photo comes from a collection of photos I took back in February of this last year when I went to visit Seanan McGuire.

This is just one of the many dolls in her collection that I had the privilege of shooting. There’s a haunting beauty about these dolls and I look forward to, at some point, doing another round of these pics.

This shot was taken with my Canon EOS Rebel T2i. The lens info is not listed in the EXIF data, but I’m fairly certain this was taken with my Series E 50mm 1:1.8 lens.
