20190412: Reflections, Trees & river of San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX



Just one of those days, a photograph I took months ago & never did the post of.

So “Reflections” is an appropriate title to remember when 141days ago I could go outside & see sunshine, here in San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., MX. A city that now wants to openly kill me

Again, as in the previous post on leading lines, I wandered back & forth to find a nice composition & the bright tree in the middle of the foreground captures the eye.

The dark foreground trees then capture the eyes as you go down the bright tree & are drawn to the right side, then you follow it down to the river and & follow the line of trees back downstream.

The darker trees on either side of the image “frame” the composition.

As always I am a independent Investigative photojournalist who works for the “Spiritual Realm” more than humans & I am now looking for an “EXIT” from this murdering FOR PROFIT city in Mexico where they kill journalists & photojournalists JUST FOR FUN!

San Juan de los Lagos doesn’t like the fact I exposed their Vatican APPROVED MIRACLE for the circus act it is AND THE LOCALS DO NOT EVEN BELIEVE IN GOD OR El Cristo as a Living Spiritual ENTITY. It is just plastic DOLL THEY SELL FOR PROFITS!

20190412: Leading Lines Photography another quick lesson. Day 141, alive & still teaching.



I have done several of these photographs lessons on “leading lines”.

Here is another, San Juan de los Lagos city photograph I took as part of that series. Fighting for my life in this town of thieves, cheats & murderers, it has just taken time to get back to it.

It is necessary lesson to learn in both Graphic Design & painting-photography, if you want someone to pay attention to the image, be it an advertising for a client or artwork to sell in a gallery, you need to keep the person’s attention.

That is the “job” of the use of “leading lines”,

20181009 Mex stone & street-4894_BE

As you can see, the river, the walls of the river channel & even the clouds “LEAD” the person’s eyes to look into the image & down the river & city along the channel.

Even the Clouds on the right side has a hook in the very distance, so that after the left cloud’s dark area & contrasts against the bright city under it, you are drawn back to the very depth of the photo to the bridge in the middle of the river channel.

In the Masters of painting & art schools these are the golden circle, triangle,

Golden_Spiral1

and in use of a master painting,

Golden circle demo

So the next time you take a photograph, be it a cellphone or a the most expensive camera available, think about your composition & what you want the viewer to pay attention to.

20190411: Eye of the Beholder Inspirational Poster, just having fun on Day 140 of being alive, still!



Yep, no one in San Juan de los Lagos has figured out how to kill me yet.

Any way, still looking for my “EXIT” and keeping myself busy.

Print

So many times I have been told by people, NOT customers, of what & hold to do art.

I must remind them, I AM THE ARTIST, I create My art & evolve over time.

They are interested in what I consider crafts-people. People who make the same things, do the same style of artwork for years or decades as income. Not an issue to me, but as an Artist, I evolve. i.e. I got my 1st camera in 1962, I DO NOT STILL USE 1962 PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT & I am learning the latest in digital video production now as well!

An artist  DOES NOT SIT LIKE A STAGNATE POND…

20190411: Old Door Way, Where does it lead? Day 140 & Still keeping busy, Alive!



Yes, a 140 days locking myself inside my apartment to keep the Mexicans who kill journalists & photojournalists for fun, corruption is protected from the top down.

Notice that all ready people are talking of the NEW President ALMO, just exchanging “his People” for the past people that he claimed are corrupt.

Any way, working on some posters, I was digging thru the files of photos I had shot here in San Juan de los Lagos Jal, MX and found this old door way. Way too much fun thinking of what might be behind it!

20190401: April Fool’s fun, Inspirational Poster. Day 131, hanging tough #occupyiss

Going through some older photos, came across this one & had to add a smart-ass saying to it.

April Fool’s day, what the heck!

Day 131, still alive, eating manna-energy of the Spiritual Realm & surviving so far. San Juan de los Lagos, Jal., Mx where they kill for their belief in a making money from the Vatican-Cartel approved “MIRACLE” of their God & Saint.

 

A little light painting fun, from a back road trip.

20190131: #Occupyiss using a Shaman Portal? A little artwork on Day 69

Yes, still playing with the Star Ship idea & the “miracle needed” to get out ALIVE from San Juan de los Lagos, Jal, MX where they want to kill me for exposing their 300 yr old VATICAN-MAFIA-CARTEL “Faked MIRACLE with a Circus act in 1632” & APPROVED by the Vatican in 1732.

I guess it is lucky for me the locals INSULTED the Aztec Gods as well in front of me.

I am conversing on my survival these days, so a little cool fun artwork of those conversations.

Yeah, I am doing another section of my Star Ship & this is coming along nicely, with many parts of different photos collage-mural together.

I have several hours of work on it yet to do, but heck I am celebrating 53 Days since fighting off the Mexican Police & locking out the San Juan de los Lagos, Jal. Mx locals to KEEP THEM from murdering me.

Good enough reason to smile!

Yes, a green house dome with stars& planet behind it, ah the glory of being an artist.

To see what has not been done yet…

and as seer, I too await more human horrors of arrogance.

20181207: Lesson on photography withOUT a tripod, yet long shutter times for cellphone users!

I learned to shoot night street photography in Los Angeles in the 1970s, specially leaving my job working after school at 1am or 2 am.

I could not bring a tripod to school, so I had training to hold my 35mm film camera still while taking several second long shots.

  1. LEARN to hold your breath. Obviously, if you are talking, the camera is shaking. I was into swimming so that was easy.
  2. Practice “lightly” touching the shutter button to active it. I learned to shoot a gun at an early age. YOU SQUEEZE the trigger, Not smash or yank the trigger if you want to hit the bull’s eye. Same with cameras!!
  3. Use supports! If you have a cellphone on a long pole, the wiggle is worse, However if that pole is braced against a streetlight post or wall or car BEHIND the camera!  No one knows even if you send it off a minute later & you got a better photo because the  street light post or wall helped keep the camera steadier.
  4. Turn OFF  the auto flash, YOU DECIDE when to let the lights of the “Scene” light your photo or add flash.

 

20181027 night bridge & field of flowers-4935FB

No tripod, but standing on the side of the road and waiting to have no cars going by. Grab a breath, let some out & hold it. Press the shutter down smoothly & slowly.

In this photo you can see the cat stopped for a second on the steps, the cat is blurry but easy to make out it’s shape and adds a Rembrandt effect to the over all image. I held the shutter open for I think 2 seconds or more.

20160923 San Juan e-book-0168FB

and this photo again, the graininess of the High ISO, the long slow shutter effect & overall appearance of the image is surrealistic.

20160923 San Juan e-book-0182FB

Again, seconds long shutter, notice the fig leafs moved in the slight breeze but the cactus & wall stay sharp.

20181116: A bit of moon over San Juan de los Lagos river bridge

Yes, always the night photographer, the flooded river gave a nice vantage point to shoot from without wet feet or tripod.

20181027 night bridge & field of flowers-4935FB

There was quite a bit of traffic so I did not bother with getting out a flash for light painting the bridge just a little bit.

Maybe next storm???
