In the art of photography, we are generally told that the more light, the better.
So, often in a a studio setup or indoor shoot, photographers tend to use a lot of lighting equipment and try to balance things out from different angles. That being the case, one of the most overlooked and under appreciated lighting setups in the use of a single light source.
In a recent shoot with a beautiful young model by the name of Brittany Jordan, I did some experimentation with a monolight and really liked how things turned out. To see more of my work, check out my artistic photography website.
Every once in a while a talented musician that is somewhat out of the mainstream breaks through the murky waters of the industry to capture the hearts and minds of fans everywhere. Lindsey Stirling is one such artist.

For years, graphic designers have be providing interesting and creative graphic services that literally make words into a form of visual art. You need not look further than a few different print ad campaigns or text-based company logos to realize that this is the case.
However, in a recent random trip through cyberspace, I came across a very cool site that instantly creates a visual piece of art from any phrase or content or the text on just about any website.
The official name of these digital creations are wordles and you can create your own, in seconds and for free at http://www.wordle.net.
Check out this colorful example direct from the website.
I recently learned through a friend that a women she knows, who I have since met and befriended online, is working hard on a major project. Her name is Lindsey Sarah Harward and the goal is to create what will be called the Horry County Children’s Musical Theatre in beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Personally, I think it is a great idea and a good way to both educate children and foster their creative sides.

This is the title/catch line of a new source I decided to create that is dedicated to helping people find free high quality photos to use with no strings attached. I decided to put this effort together based on my own difficulties in finding free images to use for my own creative purposes.
I figured, even if I take a few shots every once in a while on my cell phone while out and about, I could add these to a collection and who knows, maybe it could be of use to someone. If you’d like to see if any of the images can be of use to you, or if you’d like to add some of your own (and get free promotion out of it), you can feel free to do so. Just click the image below to be taken to the Facebook Group that is free for all.
