Killer Art

For your viewing pleasure, a couple of links that my brother Nicholas passed my way (Nicholas has an amazing eye for artwork, and is a very good graphic designer himself). If you have a few minutes, pull up a chair and feast your eyes upon these photos (here's a sample):

  • Tuomo Väinämö - Finnish Shooter, incredible skies / landscapes. Razor sharp, crisp saturated colors.
  • Jim Erickson – Ad Industry killer. Excellent depth of field. Versatile. Amazing compositions and out of this world post edit effects.
What I find interesting about great photos like these is how they manage to convey something - there is always a depth of experience and emotion, story mixed with mystery, even with very mundane subject matter. I find myself wanting to see these places, meet these people.

I don't totally understand how it works, but I find it fascinating. This is a hobby I want to get better at over the coming years...

When I go back and look at the pictures Coury Deeb took while we were in Sudan, I am amazed by how much he was able to capture what I experienced there that I could never convey with words.
