Chile and Patagonia – June Art Walk


Friday, June 1st, I will be debuting new images from Chile & Patagonia at Unity Salon in Downtown Fullerton as part of the June Art Walk. Images displayed include a sunset profile of the hillsides of Valparaiso, a UNESCO world heritage city that lies along the Pacific Ocean. There are numerous photos from Torres del Paine National Park, in Chilean Patagonian, including shots from Lago Grey and Grey Glacier. The frozen lagoon in front of the actual Torres del Paine was captured after a heart thumping 1500 foot early morning race up a mountain side to catch the sunrise. Images from Puerto Natales will also be featured. the early morning fog creating an ghostly effect along the seaside town. Probably one of my favorite photos of the trip is from a windblown tree that sits along the highway from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales. We spent many of miles looking for the perfect tree on the return trip…and I was completely frustrated in my attempt to capture the image stuck in my head…only to realize later I had captured the exact image burning in my mind on the trip out to Puerto Natales…maybe that’s why the image was stuck in my head?

Hopefully you can make it out, and if you can’t the gallery above should give you a slight taste of what will be displayed.

Full Moon and the Fox Theatre Marquee

This shot has been lingering in the back of my mind for the last few weeks. As we’ve prepared for our participation in the upcoming Fullerton Market I’ve been making a concerted effort to focus on images of Fullerton, including the Fox Theatre marquee. As I was standing atop one of the parking structures watching the sun go down a thought struck me…wouldn’t it be cool to catch the moon setting behind the marquee….and of course, they have an app for that.

I brought up the Photographer’s Ephemeris iPhone application and lined up the location with the marquee…and lo and behold the upcoming full moon and time of the year would line the setting moon up perfectly with the theatre marquee, specifically Sunday morning. The sun would rise to the east just as the moon was setting to the west on a direct path from the top of the Lemon parking garage, between the odd metal beams on top of the parking garage, over the McDonald’s across the street, to the left of the traffic signal, to the marquee…you get the idea, not something that happens every day. Which, of course, made me quite depressed when I woke up Sunday morning at 5 am only to find out it was raining with low clouds.

Seeing as I was up early today I figured I would check it out, just in case. The moon was setting an hour later, making the sky lighter than I was originally hoping for. As I reached the top of the parking structure I came to the conclusion…I think today might have been the right day after all.

This image, along with a number of images, as well as our new image transfer tiles will be available at the upcoming Fullerton Winter Market and tree lighting ceremony, December 4th from 12-530.

Sequoia Trail

Another great turnout at the August Fullerton Art Walk. Thanks to all of you who stopped by to show your support (and a special thanks to those of you who purchased some of my work!). We will have to hit the pavement and find a new location for the upcoming art walks, but Unity Salon has been a fantastic host the last few months.

Prior to the Art Walk we took an impromptu trip up to Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park. Seeing as it was last minute, to a national park, in the middle of summer…it took quite awhile to find a camping spot, but we found a fantastic one right near Grant’s Grove. One our one full day in the park we did the big tree gamut…a nice walk through Grant’s Grove and then a 10 mile hike (according to the GPS) through the Giant Sequoia Forest near the Sherman Tree. Starting at the Sherman Tree Parking lot we ventured through the Congress Trail, the Sequoia Trail and along Circle and Long Meadows before heading back. Wildflowers were visible through the forest, creating a fabulous foreground…and we timed the hike so we finished around late afternoon…creating some great photo opportunities. The contrast required utilizing photomatix pro (HDR) to maintain both highlight and shadow detail.

I posted an oil painting version of this shot using Topaz Simplify on the redinkphotography facebook page.

Here’s some additional shots from the hike

2 Days and Counting

The prints are matted, framed, and hung on the Salon walls with care…another set of prints are matted and sealed in vacuum bags. Books have arrived, information cards have been picked up, and the continual struggle to write a literate biography…is just that…a continual struggle.

Two more days until the Art Walk in Fullerton. We met with the fine folks at Unity Salon last night and hung 10 framed prints on the walls. It was an interesting experience, watching my framed art hung on the walls. Yeah, we’ve hung a few photos around the house, but this was different…a nice little ego boost for sure.

15+ venues will open their doors on Friday night for the Fullerton Art Walk, so there should be something for everyone (though I would obviously expect you to spend most of your time with us!).

Date: Friday, July 2, 2010

Time: 6pm – 10pm

Location: Unity Salon (map), Downtown Fullerton

I will be at the Salon from 6-10. There will be wine, cheese, and hopefully a nice crowd of friends and visitors. Framed images from the series will be available for purchase, as well as signed copies of my book, Scenes of India, various matted prints and potentially a video slideshow. Special show only pricing will be available on prints, as well as future orders.

scenes of india

I am pleased to announce the availability of “scenes of india”, a photographic journey through India. My first publicly available photography publication.

Scenes of India explores the life and times of urban Indian life in the cities of New Delhi, Gurgaon, Kolkata, and Agra. 70+ black and white photos printed on premium photo paper with a hard cover.

My first journey to India, in the winter of 2004, can be politely described as a partial disaster. To my surprise — and ultimate relief — my impressions of India the second go around were significantly better than my first visit. Yes, the pollution, crowds, traffic, poverty and begging could still be daunting at times, but rather than shield myself from these experiences I attempted to embrace them.

The photos in this book, Scenes of India, were taken during my second Indian experience in August of 2007. Shooting through the window of a moving car and walking through various landmarks and city locations these images are a look at the daily life of the Indian people in their urban environments.

Currently available through Blurb, for $59.95+tax/shipping. The first edition is limited to 250 copies.

First Edition Pricing

1-100 – $59.95

Welcome to the new Redinkphotography.com

Welcome to the new Redinkphotography.com website.

For months I’ve wanted to revamp the website, and after a lot of dithering and false starts, after a few weeks of development, the new and improved Redinkphotography.com has hit the interwebs. While adjustments are still being made, I’ve decided to go ahead and publish the new version and start getting some feedback (and if you want to provide feedback…use the comments section below!)

First off let me say, in order to provide the functionality and capabilities in the new version I needed to wipe the slate clean. Which means that while the old site is still available; posts, comments, and some old links will no longer work. Also, if you have an RSS Feed setup you will need to update it to the new site. If you don’t know what an RSS Feed is, a feed sends a notification to your browser that updates have been made to the site, or if you have a feed aggregator summarizes posts.

So, what’s new with the blog and website?

A detailed breakdown of site enhancements can be read here.

The first, and most exciting part, is a revamped gallery capability. Or rather, a gallery capability that actually works! Galleries of my work can be seen in one place, interested in black and white photographs? Is there. Landscape? All there. What I feel are some of my most compelling images from the streets of India…it’s all there for you as well.

For those of you interested in purchasing prints, clicking on most images will take you directly to my archive site where you will have the option to order prints directly from ez prints.

The new site will better integrate video and multimedia, so I’m hoping to get to some slideshow projects I’ve had bouncing around in the back of my head. I’ve also introduced a new segment called photography brilliance where I will post links to some of my favorite photographers on the web.

So, feel free to spend a few minutes taking a look at the new site and feel free to provide feedback. I’m sure there will be some slight hitches along the way (and hopefully no more panic attacks where I think I’ve accidentally deleted the entire site).
