The Only Thing That Matters To Us

Egraphy is the process of creating still or moving pictures by recording radiation on a sensitive medium like film or an electronic sensor. The products of photography are called negatives and photographs, the latter being developed from the negatives.

Artists are crafters of human thought and emotion. Think about that .. its massive. It is for us to inspire and motivate. To merely duplicate is to devastate. True innovation is born on the wings of reality, but will always fly one mile higher. Don’t ever think for a moment we are merely couriers of imitation to some sort of “reality”.

Give the idea a shower

The seed needs to be soaked in an inspiration shower (patent pending). I hunt the interwebs for cool UI patterns and archive them in a massive Photoshop file. For example, when working on YouTube TV I grabbed hundreds of examples of future UI from futurists like Jayse Hansen and Neil Huxley.

Tiny women carry amazingly large bags, twice their eighty-pound weight. Some of the women carry babies in slings around front. A good adult picker can harvest over two hundred pounds of cherries and earn $8 a day, more than twice the Guatemalan minimum daily wage.

Compel your audience. Capture the moment. Light with purpose. If a picture is worth a thousand words, what’s a talking picture worth?

While I’m not the best photographer you’ll bump into, my images are worth something. It’s hard to put a monetary value on some shots, but those photos sell, and those photos arouse emotions.

And beyond that, those are one-in-a-lifetime experiences that I documented through my photo trips. And beyond that, those are one-in-a-lifetime experiences that I documented through my photo trips.

How photography connects us

The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.

Let’s just start by looking at some great photographs. This is an icon of National Geographic, an Afghan refugee taken by Steve McCurry. But the Harvard Lampoon is about to come out with a parody of National Geographic,and I shudder to think what they’re going to do to this photograph. Oh, the wrath of Photoshop.

Here’s a photograph shot in moonlight, something that digital photography has made a big difference for. It was with the elephants that this story pivoted.

What is photography really?

From a scientific perspective, creativity is your ability to think of something original from connections made between pre-existing ideas in your brain. These connections are controlled by neurotransmitters like adenosine, which alerts your brain when you’re running out of energy and reacts.

This got me wondering about coffee and beer and which one would actually help me be more creative and get work done. Hopefully, this will help you decide when it’s best to have that triple shot espresso or ice cold brew.
