Re: Lets get creative

Wow Ben, good stuff.

Not too into contemporary art myself, but I know how to appreciate it. My LACMA membership just expired recently and I didn't feel like renewing it... I'm sad. :(

Re: Lets get creative

Golf is my art. My club is the brush, the ball is my paint, and the course is my canvas.




But more seriously, photography is my creative medium. I started digital about a year ago, and am just getting into B&W film photography now. My plan is to make my own darkroom once I get out of this apartment and into a house.

Awesome shots! I really like how you frame your portraits. Your landscapes are bitchin' too. I could see some of those shots in Time Magazine. What's up with the God statues? The lighting it unreal, how'd you get access to shoot those? I see you just came back from SoCal? I was at the Getty just yesterday. Only my second time! Its a shame. I've lived here all my life, watched as that place got built on the hill and only been twice. And, I've never been to The Villa...

Re: Lets get creative

Thanks.

Most of the statues were at the Getty Villa. Anyone can photograph there, as long as it isn't a travelling exhibition. When we went in June they had an Aztec exhibit which I would have LOVED to shoot, but wasn't allowed. Oh well. They do a good job of lighting the statues there, so it's just a matter of getting the right angle, and then intensifying the shadows and darks in post-processing.
I would really recommend going to the Getty Villa. I, personally, like it better than the Getty Centre. The Getty Villa has some really old stuff there. A few of the statues are from 4000-6000 B.C.

I'm on CS 5. Not that it matters.

I shoot photos for a living.

Here's a pic of my son at 9 months old. I photoshopped out the diaper art and the Callaway logo on the ball.

With the daylight ending early, I have time to spend on painting again. Here's my latest two. The North Shore sign is for my buddy whose family is from Hawaii, and the Seoul Ink piece is for the studio I got my tattoo at in Seoul...

Heck yeah! The smell of Krylon Ultra Flat Black is still one of my favorite smells! Those most certainly were some great times in my life. I still carry markers around with me for a little late night Downtown L.A. fun. ;) Southsider huh? You're gangster!

 

And absolutely. As of this painting season, I've discovered the benefits of "pro" paints, as my style has changed and I need better fading properties. Montana is three times as much as the cheapo Valspar stuff I was using, but, easily five times better, with TONS of color options! Its quite amazing how big the graffiti paint market is these days! And I'm quite lucky to have a great store, 33third.com local to me. Here's some of my latest...
