What my motivation should be!!

I’ve been away from the blog for a long time. But nobody is reading it so…

Watch this essay. This is why it shouldn’t matter if anyone is reading the blog or paying attention to my art work in any other way.. :


A self contained activity, one that is NOT done with the expectation of future benefit, but simply because the doing itself is the reward…


When the experience is Autotelic the person is paying attention to the activity for its own sake. When it is not, the attention is focused on its consequences.

Lashbrook Rings – Product shots

I did some trial product shots of rings for Lashbrook Design. It’s been awhile since I shot product. I felt a little rusty at first, but I worked through it. I missed my 4×5 and the total control I had with that. I tried to focus manually. I thought if the camera was static and the subject was static I could focus by hand. Not so much. I had to turn the autofocus back on and trust the camera. It drives me crazy that I can’t focus a blasted camera by hand. I wish they would sell split focus screens. I guess I just have to trust the camera. It did a great job. It also helped to pump up the light and stop the lens down. All in all they turned out pretty good.

Here’s the link to the gallery.
