Observed Moments

I was walking down fifth avenue and saw this image, paused turned back and asked the person if it would be ok to make an image of their shoes. They looked a little puzzled, but said, ok. After making the image I showed it to them and they said, “wow very cool, I had no idea”.

One of the great satisfactions of photography is being able to make an image of those fleeting moments that we come upon every day.

Sarasota Skies, No. 4

Sunset over Sarasota Bay, Sarasota, Florida

I made this image with the iPhone11Pro/camera. No filters, no adjustments, raw from the camera.

One of the things I like about this image is the shapes of the clouds which remind me of mountains on the horizon.

clouds, skies,
Saudi Arabia has dunes, Kazakhstan has mountains, Kyoto has gardens, Iceland…well just about everything, Sarasota has skies

This time of year Sarasota has dramatic skies. Beyond the the beauty of nature there is an opportunity to experience in an elemental way the energy of connection between heaven and earth. Sometimes the clouds are dark and foreboding and even then behind the darkness there is light. Taking time to be present and take in the moment can be a teaching. Nature is the source.

The exhibit of images will be on display December 22nd 11 am to 4 pm at 1338 Central Avenue Sarasota, Florida 34236.

The images are being offered to lift our spirits after the depressing experience with “red tide” along the coast of Sarasota in recent months.  These beautiful underwater images were photographed in the Carribean, the Florida Keys and the Gulf of Mexico. They show what a healthy marine environment looks like.

Interior Kiva at spruce tree house Mesa Verde CO

Sacred Light

Ancestral Puebloans built Spruce Tree House around A.D. 1200.  It was re-discovered in 1888, and is the third largest cliff dwelling in Mesa Verde National Park. This Cliff Dwelling housed somewhere around 60 to 80 people. This is a view from inside one of the 8 Kivas found at Spruce Tree House. Kivas are subterranean structures that were most likely used for spiritual ceremonies. 

This image is one of 12 prints in the collection “Art Within Architecture” on exhibit at Eastep Photography Gallery,  1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida, 34234.  The prints can be viewed on Saturday, September 29, 2018, between 11 am and 4 pm.  The Gallery is also open by appointment.  Call 917.675.0640 or write WayneEastep@Gmail.com

Persona

A portrait should represent your likeness and evoke your emotional energy.

That is my goal when making your portrait.

I  think of your portrait as being an image representing the outside and inside of you.  A single image if made with focus and connection can be a true representation of your persona. However, no manner how successful the single image is it will not represent the whole truth of who you are because you are way too complex.  At the moment the photograph is made you may be open and the still image can communicate that openness.  You may also be quiet, cautious, and have wit, chances are the single picture will not communicate all of those aspects of your persona.  When making your portrait I will guide you to being present in the moment and not get concerned about trying to show all the aspects of your persona.  Let’s be satisfied with getting one image that reflects who you are.

When you open your spirit and allow your energy to move and I focus my attention and spirit we can connect in 125th of a second to create an image that communicates your persona.

My Portrait Studio is located in downtown Sarasota at 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236.  I’ve put a lot of intention into creating a space that is warm, comfortable and safe with the goal that you will feel good about having your portrait made.  I look forward to working with you to “capture” your persona. 

To schedule a time to make your portrait contact me; WayneEastep@Gmail.com  or call 917.675.0640.
