Abstracting the Essence

11.28.2014 by Mark Forman

One part of photography I really love is doing abstract photos. Abstract is a pretty broad word meaning different things to different people. What I like is taking something and giving it much greater significance than it's original context-so you can also say exaggerating that element. It can also mean something that loses it's natural […]

Deep in Thought

11.06.2014 by Mark Forman

The smoking thing-did it a number of times and quit a number of times until one day I finally did quit for a long time through now-I want to say about 11 years(don't miss it at all). What helped me finally to quit was realizing that I was taking anti-oxidants which were good for my […]

Vader Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

10.30.2014 by Mark Forman

Flowers are beautiful living things. Very delicate with intricate structures and distinctive shapes. It is hard for me not to mess around with the appearance some since they are one of the most common and therefore over shared subjects up there with puppies and cats. That being said I can understand why so many photographers are […]

The Color Thing

10.26.2014 by Mark Forman

The longest struggle I've had in my personal photography journey is with color. Finding the right ones together, not too many, not too over-saturated, balanced, etc. I was also struggling within how I processed them and my related software/camera settings to achieve color that appealed to and satisfied my eye. I'm finally getting much closer […]

Spy Vs. Spy

10.23.2014 by Mark Forman

When I was a kid one of my favorite things to read was Mad Magazine. One of the best parts of Mad was the Spy Vs. Spy comics.  So my image above of the 2 monks seeking offerings at the busy market made me flashback on the comic due to the monochrome duality nature of the […]

Buggy

10.21.2014 by Mark Forman

Recently I've made some adjustments to the settings on my DSLR. I discovered on a recent night shoot that I was getting a lot of noise and not clear definition as I expected. After doing some research on a photography forum I found that using ISO noise reduction offers softer images while offering some noise […]

Making Friends…

10.19.2014 by Mark Forman

I've had my IPhone 5 for over a year and I've taken the occasional shot with it. The biggest challenge I have is processing the images on the tiny screen-hard for me to see as clearly as I'm used too on my big desktop monitor. Well actually there are a bunch of other challenges-not the […]

Be Kind to Ghosts

10.13.2014 by Mark Forman

  More from my self-imposed poetry workshop. In this case I wrote the poem first so I selected the photo because I felt it fit with mood of poem.   Be kind to ghosts A blur in bushes and shadows flickering Bic lighters Crowding together they are sandwiched between channels  Zenith TV' dials turned hard skew their contrast They bleed like  Cherry […]
