New Art Book – Optical Atristry

A lot of my recent book writing ventures focus on the electronic format and have included how-to style guides on artistic concepts. But I am excited to have just competed a book for display purposes with art pieces called “Optical Artistry.” Check out some sample pages I have added to this post and buying option on my author site.

If we could see WI-FI it might just be beautiful

The other day I was walking around town and thought for a moment, boy there are a lot of WI-FI signals out there. They cross through our skies and weave through one another, all behind the scenes and invisible to the human eyes.

What is we could see them? What might they look like?

As it turns out, a fantastic artist  Nickolay Lamm worked with M. Browning Vogel, who has a Ph.D. in Astrobiology and is a former NASA employee. Together, they created a visual representation of what the world might look like if WI-FI was visible.

Check out some of the stunning shots below.

The incredible photography of Craig Greiner

When a gifted artist can take his or her vision from behind the camera lens to bring it to fruition on paper, canvas or even metal, it really is something special. That being said, I’d like to take a moment to rave about the amazing artwork of someone near and dear to my heart, my brother.

Based out of beautiful and scenic North Carolina, he’s captured images from all over the country with a specialty in nature, landscape and wildlife images.

Please fee free to check out his official website at Greiner Studio.

I’m quite confident you will be glad you did.

Great sources for free media content

A little while back I wrote about the ethical use of content from the web. Keeping with that theme, I figured I would share a few great sources of quality content with the reads of the blog.

Most people have probably heard of the classifications “royalty free” and “public domain.” But, there’s a newer licencing category out there that often ends up offering newer content and with few or no restrictions at all. It’s called “Creative Commons.” And if you’ve never heard of it, you should really check into this.

So, without any further ado, here are the sources I mentioned above:

Photos of one of nature’s great wonders

One of my favorite types of photography…

is that in which the shooter captures the beauty of nature.

In my own personal opinion, I really enjoy shooting bodies of water. Whether it is a vast Ocean or something as small as a little creek, there’s something majestic about flowing water. So this past weekend when I had the chance to take some photos at arguably one of the most amazing natural scenes in the world, I jumped at the chance to do so. That location was Niagara Falls.

The following photos are a few that I took from the American side of the falls in New York. I hope you enjoy them.
