A church video with some of my photos in it

Halau Wa’a Episcopal Church put together a video about the church for the recent Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii Convention. They used some of my photos, such as the profile of Father Mark blowing the conch, the panoramas of worship at Nimitz Cove and the congregation (about 3 minutes in), the liturgical hula picture at about 4:53.

Mahalo to the church for using them!

Are you biased against color in art?

Chromophobia: The greatest conspiracy in ancient art

There’s also, I think, the heavy bias in art photography: That only black and white photos are “fine art”.

My favorite visual art in high school has pencil drawing. Sharp lines, smooth, detailed shading, no color.

I also did watercolor. It was color, but with shading and blending.

I tried oilpainting. I think a key skill there is mixing colors – and I was terrible at it.

What sculpture I did was made from items that already had their own colors.

So what about you and color in art?

Also feeling kind of stoked

At my day job, a bunch of us did a fundraiser for Hawaii Foodbank on Friday. I brought 14 photos in various sizes (8″x8″, 8″x12″, 9″x25″ and a pair of 57″x10″ panoramas).

A coworker did an awesome job of matting 10 of them. We couldn’t matt the big panos, they were bigger than the matt boards.

We sold 10 of them. Including BOTH of the big panoramas.

Do something for charity this holiday season: you’ll both do good and feel good.

So stoked! 🙂
