Autumn Art Photo Collection by Frank J Casella

August 16th, 2019

Autumn Art Photo Collection by Frank J Casella

The elements of Fall are upon us: The cooler weather, falling leaves, rain puddles, and the aroma of baked pies and bonfires.


I like Fall the most, and the thing I like most about Fall is how fast the details change. From colorful trees, and watching like overnight how the leaves fall, to the changing landscape into these colors.


Before you know it the trees are bare, and colder weather sets in.


Each of the seasons bring with it elements and details of art created by God. Often times I feel that God is just waiting for us to show up to take part in the moment with Him, and with our camera to click the shutter.


Here are some Autumn moments that I have captured, hope they help move you into the most colorful season of the year, and my personal favorite.

Contribute

Thank you for reading, and subscribing to, my art blog. The contribution you make doing this is priceless.


Delivered free, weekly, now for a half-decade. You can subscribe at no cost by email, by following this blog on Twitter, and on LinkedIn, and best of all, by RSS.


There are no ads, and never have been. No guest posts, of course not. No one can buy a referral. No affiliate revenue either ... or data mining.


I write every word, with you in mind. I do not get how outsourcing something this personal, when you give me the privilege of your attention, would resonate.


The secret to writing a weekly blog is to write every single week (used to be every month). And to post it and publish it. There are no other secrets.


The blog doesn't exist to get you to buy a picture … though sometimes I think I make pictures so people get to read the blog.


I haven't missed a month in a long time – being committed to sharing something like this is most meaningful. I know there are typos, and I am not good with grammar. I hope they are rare and I work to fix them.


Over time, the blog becomes a collection. People remember a message from one post or another a year after I wrote it. The blog or pictures resonates with people in so many ways, they use the search box for learning, I am surprised often - and touched by - what my readers tell me.


It is true that I would write this blog even if no one read it, so thank you for reading it, it is more interesting that way. There are always more than five-hundred subscribers who come and go (with an incredible click-open rate), and, best I can tell, people read this from all over the world.


Some of you have told me that you would like a way to contribute to what we are doing here in a monetary way instead of, or in addition to, purchasing my artwork. Just like you might go to a movie theater, or a concert, or an art gallery and pay to be moved by the experience but take home nothing tangible .... only the memories and moments.


If so, you can do that by credit / debit card and by paypal. And know that the words ' thank you ' do not begin to describe how I am very grateful for your doing this!


God bless you in a special way and where you need it most!

Frank


PS. In the future, to find this page just visit the blog and enter into the search box 'contribute' or 'support' or 'donate' and you'll find it.


PPS. If it's a stretch, please don't feel obligated to send me anything. It is for you that I keep everything free. Others of you may want to make a subscription - to do this click the box 'Make this a monthly donation'.

Support is a more accurate description than subscriptions (I'm not a tax deduction; in fact, I pay income taxes on everything you send me!). Again, you don't need to support me to read anything. And paying for a subscription gets you nothing other than my ability to keep the inspiration flowing, writing and making pictures even more.

Stability by Frank J Casella

August 13th, 2019

Stability by Frank J Casella

Stability - A Father is like a tower to a child's life, a Godly figure of carrying us and being our hero.


I yanked this picture out of my archives, because I think it sends an important message. We need to have pictures like this on our walls, stent on greeting cards, and available to use on websites. Because the importance of this is taken for granted.


I recently went to a parade with my family. Next to us was a little girl who wanted her dad to lift her up onto his shoulders. But dad refused, several times. The girl looked crushed. You might think because she didn’t get what she waned, but what I saw in her eyes was she wanted her Dad, and she wanted him to save the day and let her look down the road at the parade coming.


Instead, Dad would rather stare at his phone, or put his hands on his wife's butt. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place for these, and a parade with family is not it. The roll of the Father is to set the tone for the household and to get his family to Heaven.


Likewise, the roll of both a Mother and a Father are vital and important, I like how Dr. Meg Meeker puts it.



So, like I say, people need pictures through works of art, that are examples of goodness, hope, and teach positive human interaction.

Do Pro's Make Better Pictures? By Frank J Casella

July 29th, 2019

Do Pro

I've been a photographer for several decades, not counting from when I was a kid, and I've heard many myths and truths about what and who makes better pictures.

So, if you don't want to read any further I'll spill the beans: The best picture is the one that moves you; and the best camera is the one you have with you in the moment.

Now, let us back up the train, so to speak, and correct some beliefs:


1) Pro's take better pictures¦ So, if you have a pro and a beginner make a picture of the same scenic, people say the pro will take the better picture. If so, it is because the pro has practiced his/her craft. But I have also seen an photo enthusiast make a picture outstanding because she has the spirit of the rookie and developing the eye of the pro.

Some photographers will tell you that a pro will make sever exposures to find the best image and work with that. But this is usually a photographer who has learned only on a digital camera. I, for example, learned on film so when I approach a subject with my camera I make each click of the shutter count ... I know how my camera and sensor see the light, and I know what perspective and story that I want the image to speak before I ever lift the camera to my eye. In fact, I don’t use the screen on the back of my DSLR.


2) Takes same time to sell a picture at $100 as $1000¦ This is mostly true. And this is mostly brought up when a photographer wants to argue to sell pictures at a high price. My argument with this myth is that pennies make dollars. You might gain more status or trust to sell at a higher price, but you will sell more pictures at the lower price. This does not mean that you sell them cheap, because they won’t sell as much and this is when it takes more time to sell them. You have to know what market you are selling to.

For example, here in America, I know some Medical Doctors who refuse to be paid by the medical insurance system and instead are paid direct by the patients. When the insurance pays the price of care is higher, and when the patient pays obviously the price is lower. But in either case the care is the same, other than the doctor who works direct with the patient has more time to care for them as they see less appointments within an hours’ time.

Likewise, with cars a Ford and a Chevy are both about the same price. But when the late Henry Ford invented his assembly lines, he was able to lower the prices of his cars to around say $700 when other car companies where over $3000. Needless to say the other companies had to adjust their pricing to stay in business.


3) The more you pay means it is better photography or a better photographer¦ Over the years I have seen great photographers not be able to make a living, and (what I think are) lousy photographers become world renowned. What makes the difference? As Donald Trump said in his book 'The Art of the Deal':

“I’ve always felt that a lot of modern art is a con, and that the most successful painters are often better salesmen and promoters than they are artists.”

In other words, pricing is a marketing tool.


4) I need a DSLR to make the best pictures. The best pictures are the ones that move you. I have seen forty-inch wall murals made with an iPhone camera, that were very impressive with high quality. It used to be the size of the sensor or the number of megapixels, but that is no longer the case. Sometimes doing landscape photos with mixed light might need the DSLR but not for long.


So this is my ‘take’ on photos and cameras, and photographers. I don’t think I’ll change my mind until technology improves some more. In which case, you’ll see me update this article.

Thanks for reading.

Mentors by Frank J Casella

July 17th, 2019

Mentors by Frank J Casella


Mentors


Some people view life as a game. Others take it as it comes.


My photojournalism mentor, John H. White, used to say


"Preparation is the key to opportunity".


The activity that a basketball team does before a game either gets them ready for opportunity or creates it.


So, what activity are you doing ... for your goals?


Be a student of the Game.


Good students make better athletes.


It is said that children learn more from our actions than from our words.


This includes how we play the game ... and apply it to life.


The way we treat others.


The way we respond ... or react.


And how we develop relationships because of 'the game'.


Lead. Mentor. Example. Illustrate.


If you were in Catholic grade school, like I was, you might remember what the Nuns used to say ...

... God gave you two ears and one mouth ...


... Listen.

Chicago City Fog by Frank J Casella

July 11th, 2019

Chicago City Fog by Frank J Casella

Fog covers city skyscrapers on Michigan Avenue during the morning commute in Chicago Illinois. I made this picture on a Saturday morning on the way to a workshop.

I love the drama of this scene, with the silhouettes of the people going to their destinations. How you can feel the windy city vibe from the blowing flags, and the fog rolling in from over the street in the distance.

I think this image works best in square format to juxtapose the shapes of all those windows on the Wrigley Building across the street, and the lines from all the buildings and archetecture. I also happen to love strong, grid composition inside the square.

This photograph was made with the iPod Touch camera, and post-processed with Aviary Photo Editor for iOS.

You can shop this and more on my Official Website
