iPhone pano mode

While teaching the iPhone camera class today I made this panorama image of those taking the course at my studio in Sarasota. Image made with the iPhone on pano mode.

iPhone camera class

I saw this first image as I drove along Fruitville road in downtown Sarasota, Florida.

I quickly took a picture with my iPhone camera and the camera recorded what I saw and what I pointed it toward. What caught my attention was the golden light on the side of the building and I observed an intriguing pattern of light on the balconies. I then made the second image creating what my mind’s eye observed.

In May I am offering another iPhone Camera course to help you make creative images of what your mind’s eye observes rather than simply taking pictures of what your iPhone camera sees. Register ASAP the April course filled in the first week registration was open.

Read the announcement at the bottom of this blog post to learn more and how to register.

Cedar tree, Mesa Verde, Colorado

Time and life’s conditions bring about change. This cedar tree with the markings of wind, rain and snow, deep cold and searing sun shows us that beauty and grace remain even though the cedars stately and grand posture has passed.

This mission church is one of the oldest churches in America dedicated to San Francisco de Asis. It is an outstanding example of adobe mission architecture. Constructed between 1813 & 1815. Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico.

The clean lines and earthen materials make it a kindered spirit to modern architecture from the Sarasota School of Architecture. They both integrate the outdoor environment with the architecture using simple materials and clean lines in the design.

Spiral staircase, Shaker Village, Pleasant Hill, Kentucky

Spiral cherry wood staircase, one of a twin. Designed by Michajah Burnett for the Trustee’s house at the Shaker Village, Pleasant Hill, Kentucky.

I was commissioned by Nikon to use all their lenses to show each to it’s full creative and technical performance. The 8mm fisheye lens proved to be a challenge because it drew so much attention to the technical characteristic of the circular format. I felt it easily took away from the engaging aesthetics of the subject. That all changed when I came upon this magnificent spiral cherry wood staircase. There was a match between the way the concept of the spiral was formed within the staircase and the format of the fisheye lens. This image is the result.

The image is part of a collection of images I’ve curated illustrating my signature style.
