Seth Resnick, Arthur Meyerson, Ragnar Th Sigurdsson and I had a great time with a fantastic group of people while photographing three arctic islands this month – Svalbard, Greenland, and Iceland. Polar bears, reindeer, walrus, whales, and countless birds populated the diverse and historic arctic landscapes we passed through. Cryophilia (love of ice) set in when we entered one of the largest fjord systems in the world – Scorsbysund, Greenland. We’re all excited to return to Greenland and see more, which already we’ve begun plans for.

There’s limited space left in our Antarctica 2013 Voyage.

We’ll be announcing our Iceland Northern Lights 2013 workshop soon.

I love the spontaneity inherent in smart phone photography. Having a cell phone camera constantly at your side changes the way you see the world. You become more aware of the world around you, taking notice of people, places, things and events that might pass you by unconsidered. You tune in – creatively. If you want to live a more considered life I highly recommend trying cell phone photography. You can quickly and easily capture the moments in between moments. Smartl phone photography offers an invitation to celebrate the ‘smaller’ events in between the ‘larger’ events of your life. There may be a little Zen spirit at work here sometimes it is first shot best shot.

These accumulated moments add up. Over time the products of these stolen moments build something larger. Unintended bodies of work may materialize unexpectedly. The constant pull of brief episodes of creativity may even prepare the way for extended bursts of creativity.

Exercising creativity is like exercising a muscle; the more you practice the stronger you get.

“Even with the fantastic new Blur Gallery in Photoshop CS6, the Lens Blur filter is an essential tool when a high degree of control is needed to selectively (and realistically) blur an image. In this video tutorial, Julieanne Kost uses the Lens Blur filter with a depth map to to create a series of images that appear as if they were captured with a tilt-shift lens. Julieanne also demonstrates how to quickly apply this filter to multiple images using actions and batch processing.”

“This film celebrates the life and work of Laura Gilpin, an artist whose career spanned 76 years yet who worked most of that time in obscurity. With a pragmatic mind, an insightful eye and a compassionate heart, Laura Gilpin was a distinct voice in the great photographic endeavor of the 20th century to define and understand the American west. Through a detailed retrospective of her unique photographs, from her rare autochromes and exquisite platinum landscapes to her gentle portraits of Navajo life, learn how unlike her contemporaries, Laura Gilpin interpreted her surroundings as relationships between land and people rather than landscapes devoid of human existence. Experience Laura Gilpin’s remarkable ability to connect these dynamic and sometimes fragile relationships of life in the west to the inner and universal landscape of humanity.”
