Share your art.....
 
Hey everyone,
I thought it would be an interesting idea to have a place where we can all share our art, whether it be music, drawings, poetry, etc.......


I do a bit of photography, if anyone wants to check some of my stuff out, here are some links:

Love the animal images. The bird is especially striking.

I normally do cartoons but I used to do a bit of digital art. A variation on this one (which is probably my best) was the cover of an annual report

Thanks. I really like how the cover you did almost has a retro look to it, at least, that's what it looks like to me. The lighting is also real nice.

Thanks Cow. I was going for a 50s movies noir kind of vibe with a modern, digital look.

I used to enjoy photo pastiches too :)

Thanks Greg. I've been enjoying it all - hopefully a few more drummers' visual art is coming along. Dreams of the City is great - touch of Van Gogh influence there with the sky?

Here's another, called Discombobulated Sydney

Good idea for a thread! I'm crazily addicted to photography at the moment! Started in July...if only I was addicted to drumming with the same intensity...damn it..It will come back!

Check out my stuff, if you want, of course :-D

Great shots, Sarah. I'd love to take great photos like you and Cow. After seeing shots by both of you I have decided that birds in silhouette make for fabulous photos :)

Thanks! I don't go out to get silhouettes of birds and stuff...I usually change it to that if the original picture looks rubbish! haha! It's more of a correction thing at the moment...I must get better! :-D

Great Idea! Some awesome work here guys, I would like to go through each one carefully, I love all kinds of art and can look at it all day! It's no coincidence that many musicians are into photography.

I'm into photography, 3d art and video editing as well but I'll just share some photography :)

I really love shooting birds of prey but nature in general is what I really like to take pics of.
I have quite a few but here is my favourite subjects!

I'm currently rebuilding my site so the pics in the album are not the best stuff I have but if you are interested http://www.jeminimedia.com/index.php...pose&Itemid=29
I used these pics just to test out the album module.

Love seeing drummers' paintings and drawings - you can see the connection between how they approach making art and how they approach playing music. I definitely see your drumming in your art, Thaardy!

Thanks Sarah, yes this one is a dragon fly, Damselfly's are smaller and somewhat skinnier. I usually get them around spring and find them all over the place but usally around wetlands, ponds, swamps etc.

Thanks Pollyanna, that was sort of the feel I was trying to get, took awhile before I got a pic that I liked.

Thanks! that's encouraging. for this pic, I used a Canon 40D, Lens Canon 100-400mm with Kenko Extension tubes. It's sorta my poor mans macro lens :) The combination works great and using a big zoom lens with extension tubes gives you a lot of working distance.


Thanks again for the kind comments everyone! I have a few more I'd like to share later tonight.

Keep the Art coming, it's inspiring!

Haha I think I have the poor mans macro lens... They were under a tenner haha! You screw them onto any normal lens. But I have to be like 4cm away from the action...not good when photographing live spiders!

http://www.rugift.com/images/close-u...filter-set.jpg

The macro lens I do want is like 800!!

Actually I have these ones

http://images.brighthub.com/24/8/248...4EE0_large.jpg

But you are right, used on any smaller lens your working distance is very small. I wanted to get a dedicated macro lens like the Canon 100mm IS but now that I'm drumming any extra cash goes to my kit :)

What are you using Sarah in terms of gear?

Ah, mine are macro filters. My Dad gave me one segment of an extention tube, not tried it out yet :-D I use a Canon 350D and I have 3 lenses - 18-55, 28-80 and 50-200. I also want that Macro 100mm :-D

That's about it really. Only got into it in July!

So I'm not a photographer by any means but catch a cool shot every now and then. Saw Jeff Beck in concert last year and caught this photo of him in action. I really liked the lighting and how it all turned out.

This was a figurative self portrait I did for a photography class I took. I wish it would have turned out better, but at the time, I only had one lens, and it wasn't good for shooting this. I actually had to stand on a ladder to get this picture, I still wish it could have turned out better though. The lighting was also weird, which is why I made it black and white.

Wow! So many great artists and photogs here! I also have a portrait business in photography that started as a hobby for me over ten years ago. My blog is here:

http://mattederblog.blogspot.com/

The actual gallery is the first log, so you'll have to back-track there. I mainly concentrate on people ('cause people pay), and I spend alot of time practicing with my strobes. I should probably concentrate on some artsy stuff, but my music takes care of that side of me, too. Let me know what you think (or not ;)

*gulp* Is that...a Canon 1D?! I saw one once...in a perspex box in a shop...not allowed to touch it. It's like a fable creature! :-D

Yeah - all two of them. I've pretty much shot with alot of different cameras, Leicas, Hasselblads, Nikons, 4x5 - cutting my teeth on film. And after a while you come to a combination that reminds you of one of your early favs. I've taken the 1D's and I make 'em act like old film cameras. I still work faster that way.

And take heart, I do not shoot with the newest DSLRs. I've been making do with the first gen 1D - they're only 4.15 MP. I've made prints as big as 16x20 with these things and no one seems to notice that my files aren't extremely huge. Which just proves that it's the
brain behind the camera (if I do say so myself). I say it's all about the lighting. Thanks for taking a look!

Attached is a picture of what DrummerSarah saw of what I usually carry around to a job. I also have bigger lights in cases and backdrops cased up and ready to go too.

Just remember fellow photogs everytime you add a piece of glass you are adding a small percentage of distortion. A better macro lens will work better than all of those lenses stacked.

Only 4.15mp? Woah! My 350D has 8mp! But I suppose it's the person behind the camera that makes great pictures! :-)

That's a lot of stuff to be carrying around! That might be me one day when I've learnt a bit more stuff...still a rookie!

The megapixel count is only one part of the story. A higher megapixel count can mean a lower sensitivity/accuracy per pixel. What matters is the quality of the sensor and the shutter speed, image stability, quality of the lens and ISO versatility.

Once you get over four megapixels, unless you're doing really huge spreads it doesn't really matter provided the rest of the camera is up to it. I'm not insulting your camera at all (it's a fine camera) but I would liken megapixels to the old 'megahertz myth' of early last decade. Larger numbers don't necessarily mean increased quality. In the 'megahertz myth', manufacturers stopped taking into account instructions per cycle; which is why you had a Pentium IV clocking at over 3.0GHz effectively doing no more 'work' than a PowerPC chip that is running at a much lower clock speed.

The ISO is a biggie for me. If I were to buy another camera I'd try and get one that was pretty decent at higher ISO's...soo many pictures ruined because I forgot to change the ISO :-(

I would like to print some of my picture out large so the bigger mp number will hopefully do it justice :-D

I was at a photog convention in Vegas and got to hear famed photog Joe McNally speak, and even though he shoots with the latest greatest Nikon that can do ISO's to 128000 (or whatever) he wants the best quality possible, so he's always at ISO 200 (or the lowest setting). I do the same thing, I want low ISO (you should try film and shoot Fuji's Velvia rated at ISO 50). The rest is technique. I say if it's good enough for Joe, then it's good enough for me.

I'm the same, it's nearly always on 100. I just wish it was less grainy at 1600..it would make things a bit more easier sometimes (especially if you have no tripod with you!). I want the black black! and not a noisy mess. I'm sure my technique will improve...only been doing it 3 months :-D
