Eye of the Beholder

Recently, an artist/photographer friend of mine, Aaron Coston, (http://www.aaroncoston.com), took one of my original images and worked it to his hearts content.  The image became something quite nice, but also quite different than what I saw when I shot it.  It made me realize just how much interpretation there is in everything we see.  Aaron also made a short video of the PS work he did on the image and a link to it is below.  If I even knew 10% of what this guy knows, I could be dangerous!  Anyhow, the link and the 2 versions of the same image are below.  Which do you prefer, and why?

Remember Me?

I’d like to say it seems like forever since I’ve taken the time to write something here, but the truth is, it has been forever!  So many thing have happened that I don’t know where to begin.  Work through the late winter and early spring went well and has rolled right into late spring and early summer in KY, as has been the case for several years now.  I began an “Ambassadorship” for OtterBox and shoot for for some of their social media outlets.  I’ve also began working for a new client, Banded, which I’m enjoying immensley and started shooting again with Prois.  How could you not enjoy that!  Realtree is still provides a steady diet of work, as do a couple other longtime clients, so life continues to be very good.  Above is one of the shots from a shoot I did for Prois here at the farm recently.  Below are some other new, random images shot since the last time I posted here.  There is going to be a bit more work coming up in the country music industry again soon and also I believe, a bit more fishing photography.

After renting an underwater housing for my camera for a week of shooting in the Florida Keys for Realtree, I decided to purchase one on my own.  It feels like a whole new way of seeing things and opens so many previously unavailable subjects.  I know it’s going to be a great addition to my normal gear.  I’ll have to wait to post any of the the RT pix however.  Some of them are or will be shortly running in ads in some saltwater fishing magazines.  I’ll also have a new mag cover to show you soon that will be on the July edition of a mag too, that was shot here at the farm.  I’ll have more new stuff to share soon.
