I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.

Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.

With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.

Let me begin with this:

I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Losing My Breath to the Coast

Losing My Breath to the Coast

Another seascape from my coastal adventure. If you read this post: https://plus.google.com/+RobinGriggsWood/posts/4v1x6gEyQ7H, you know that I decided to keep my long lens on my cam for the whole amble down the coast. (There was a lot of wildlife out there I wanted to be able to capture at a moment's notice!) So, for landscapes, I ended up shooting panoramas handheld (and crossing my fingers that Photoshop could deal with them when I got home ... ;o)) This one was made up of 28 images and Ps handled it pretty well! It ended up being about 14,000 pixels wide (approx. 126 megapixels), and the processing was slow going ... but perhaps I found my solution to the "want to travel light; which lens do I take?" conundrum.
