Most of you visit Studio D’s blog rather than spend any time on the main site. After all the latest posts are here. I like to write and share along with posting my images, so pretty much this becomes my personal journal to some degree as well as showing what’s happening at Studio D.
It took a while for me to smarten up and go about getting the website and the blog updated. There were pro’s and con’s to consider about whether people looking at my site would like or dislike the new format. The debate has been going on for several months. Finally in a fit of being red-headed with no patience I took the plunge.
It’s a total adventure setting it up with many twists and unexpected outcomes to reading the instructions wrong. Amidst growls, sips of coffee, chex mix, and an occasional sip of wine we go forward.
So why in the world would a photographer want to share their thoughts, ideas, vision, hopes and dreams with others? The sum total of our experiences and our choices make us who we are and colors how we see and perceive the world around us. It is that perception that leads us to capture images the way “we” see them.
Our minds paint pictures before we ever speak or write words. Our magnificent minds store hundreds of thousands of personal pictures. The sad part of that is, once a person dies those images are lost forever. Photography is one form of capturing images so they span generations.
Taking that a step further images of family and friends by themselves evoke memory recognition of them. BUT! When you are in the images with them that evokes MEMORIES of times you spent together at events or just doing nothing.
So! Dig around. Blogging and journaling are quite the right brained activity for me. No outline beforehand… pretty much free association. There is an occasional bump as I roller skate on the ceiling, but that just keeps it fun!
