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.
Now that Spring is here in my neck of the woods, it can really be a great time for making incredible photos. Here are a few of my artistic photos with a bit of a Spring feel to help get you into the season.
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.

It never ceases to amaze me
that their are so many people out there with such unique artistic talents. Recently in my hometown of Pittsburgh, I can across a guy known as the “Candy Man.” His real name is Takafumi Ichiyanagi and he literary makes art out of candy. Below you’re see three examples.

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:

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.
For any of you artists out there…
if you work with visual art forms like I do, you probably understand that one of the biggest factors in trying to make an income out of your work is the cost of the materials and supplies involved in developing your final product.
Many of us are on a budget and in a lot of cases it might be difficult to afford putting something together for a prospective art buyer. But there is a solution for the financially impaired, that’s is if you’re willing to make a few sacrifices.
While this only applies to those whose work can be sold as prints, it’s still a great concept. I’m sure there are other sources out there but the one I’ll use for example here is the website Deviantart.
Basically, the way this site works (and probably others as well) is that you upload photos to your account and list them as being available for sale. How it differs from many of the other sites is that instead of you printing, packaging and shipping your work, the site takes care of everything. The catch – you only get about 20% of the sale price.
It’s an interesting option that you can weigh the pros and cons of for yourself.
