Digital photography

My reawakened interest in photography has been leading me on some merry voyages of discovery around the wonderful world wide web, I can tell you. The standard of image creation is pretty stunning too. I happened along this site: dpchallenge.com, which I love. It also gives you some great information as to what your chosen model of digicam is able to do. Once you have a nice new digicam in your hot little hands, you can revisit the site to take up one of their challenges and put your photographic talent to the test, if you really do get a lot out of being a happy snapper, that is. The standard of work, which you will see if you dig into the members portfolios, is, generally, highly impressive. Well, they look darn good to little old me. Sort of fires up those creative juices. In fact I’ve found myself wandering down the street eyeing up things that would make potentially good images. I have already spotted several interesting scenes, which is making me even more keen to get my grubby little ‘ands on a ‘real’ camera.

It would be true to say that the advent of powerful pcs plus comprehensive image manipulation applications has allowed people to reach a level of creativity that back in the days of film could only really have been dreamt about.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Yes, good digital cameras are still quite expensive, but you seem to be able to get an awful lot more satisfaction out of photography as a result. Boy, am I itching to start a snappin’. This interest could become an obsession. Hope so.

PS Check out the Icelandic photographers on dpchallenge – they seem to be able to afford professional gear, and they certainly know how to put it to good use – here’s the work of one such snapper from the land of natual hot water.

Italian Artist Gaetano Fiore Dedicates Exhibition to Jazz Great Bill Dixon

Music and art have much in common. Take Jazz for example, jazz is to music as abstract is to art, with both abstract art and jazz draw heavily upon improvisation. Musicians such as late jazz great Bill Dixon have always found inspiration in art, while artists like Gaetano Fiore seek to interpret the images conjured up in music.
