LAP: Steve Landeros


I've always wanted to photography White Sands, but I'm waiting until I have the right camera to do so. White Sands has been famously photographed and I feel the need to have a camera with movements to ensure great detail across the dunes. Until then, I enjoy looking at sand dune photos such as these from Steve Landeros.

Monitor calibration for black and white printing

My "fancy" monitor shade
I purchased a used epson 7900 printer in March with the intention of converting it to a piezography printer. I decided to print for myself to have greater control on tonality and sharpness. One of the biggest caveats to overcome with printing is having consistency between what appears on the monitor and what you get from the printer.

LAP - Salt by Murray Fredericks


This weekend hosted several gallery openings for Fraction of a Second. There were several wonderful photos on display, but what caught my attention was the documentary Salt playing at the UNM art museum.

LAP - Carnival Series by Philip Michelson


I came across Philip Michelson's work a couple weeks ago while looking at Rush Creek Editions' (a Santa Fe fine art print maker) website. I have a carnival series of my own that I've been working on and I always enjoy seeing how other people approach a similar subject.

LAP - Remote by Andy Mattern


I'm a sucker for New Mexico Photographers. I've lived in this state nearly all my life and I guess I have a bit of local pride. Andy Mattern currently has a spot with SCA Contemporary Art  here in Albuquerque.
