  • My Burning Question:

    What does it mean to be a fine art photographer?

    I know that when I retire, I will get re-involved in photography. Although I have spent a previous career in the photography field it has

      Dear Grace:

      I am amazed with your post, “The Fine Art Photographer,” because it is truly interesting. This is one post I can really relate to. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “What I know is that I enjoy taking photos and thinking creatively about the photos I take.” I think this is really fascinating because I myself enjoy taking pictures. The pictures I take might not be as good as I want them to be, but what matters is that I enjoy taking pictures and I am able to spend some time and think about what I can do with the pictures. Another sentence that I liked was “It is not about capturing what the camera sees; it is about capturing what the artist sees.” To me this stood out because in reality this is how it is for every photographer out there. Every photographer out there takes pictures of a moment, something that really captures their attention.

    • Dear Grace:

      I am surprised and delighted by your post “The Fine Art Photographer,” because you know what you like and take time to do what you like and also surprise and I love how you express yourself.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “What I know is that I enjoy taking photos and thinking creatively about the photos I take.” I think this is very nice that you know what you like and what you want to do because is what you like to do and why you take the time to dedicate it to what you like.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked the way you express yourself and the way you spend time doing what you like the most and also the way you want to improve the way you take the pictures and learn new things.

    I am very interested in how your uncle helped you explore photography because my aunt did the same with me even though I did not know it at the time. I often traveled with her in the summer and she always had her camera and talked to me about what she was doing even though I did not have a camera of my own. One sentence that stands out for me is…[Read more]

  • Hi! I love your group of images and the feelings you wrote on them. You have shown me that even one word with an image can give a new and deeper meaning to that image. I also really like the way you placed the word “Anxiety” along the rollercoaster!

  • Xuefeng, I love the line, “I am from peach blossom, means the spring is coming” because it not only shows me what is there, but it tells me the meaning of the blossoms. This poem is full of great images!

  • Raymond, your poem has so many wonderful details about the world around you! I liked when you wrote, “Papers that are important to me are all over the place” and “subway station which is always noisy” because they make me feel like I can see and hear where you are. Thank you for sharing your world with us!

    Your poem has so many wonderful images – foods and things in your home. It also has so many feelings like when you wrote, “I am from the dark light of my room, where it feels a safe place to be.” I can both see and feel your room and I know what you mean – I feel that way about my room too!

    I love when you say, “To fall apart and get up” because that seems like an important lesson for anyone. It makes me think about how when I have hard times in my life, I try to get through them and keep going.

  • I like the idea of an overarching something but I am not sure a specific question might be – well, too specific. I wonder if this will feel a little too much like  “regular school” to the summer kids. When we did
