New Video – New Google Talk! Artists and the Internet

Okay, it seems the WRONG video was uploaded by my clever friends at Google! Those guys… hehe… the previous one had all the photos totally blown out and they looked horrible dot com. Anyway, here is the PROPER video… Enjoy :)

Daily Photo – Great Wall in Evening Light

When I was at the Great Wall that evening, I kept hiking along the old wall as the sun set. I also had a zoom lens (28-300mm) with me, so I was able to get in tight on far away structures and shapes. Not too long after I took this shot, I walked along several lengths of the wall to get to these ruins. I stood there for a long time listening to music and taking photos.

    Beautiful! It’s all so pink and grey and green. You captured the essence of the evening and the wall. The pink must be from pollution, I guess. It doesn’t look like a natural color for sunset, but it is lovely.

    Well Trey just watched the video and really enjoyed it .Very down to earth talk and loved reading between the lines like, its better to give than receive not that you said so. I to have been sharing with the local Chinese news paper not that I’m any good but my photos have been in the last 10 issues and I’m not making a cent. I give so to share with people who look and read and enjoy pictures that may tell a story or they may say, wish that was my picture. I don’t feel I’m good enough and enjoy everyone else’s work because I have not been there or its in another land,but that does not stop me taking pictures.Some of my own work I felt was ok and some i thought not to good and yet the ones I did not care for, someone wanted it for wall paper. It shows one, you don’t have to be great to please, art is in the eyes of the beholder.Keep up the good work

    I really like your tight shots…. of course I am a big fan of your sweeping panos as well. I love the pinkish color. Here is a pinkish sky at Echo Lake on a fall workshop in New England.

    Truly beautiful image.

    I really like how the colours fade the further away the hills go, it makes for a really eerie and striking image, especially in such a notoriously haunted place – I wouldnt go there on my own unless I had my proton pack with me!

    Hey Trey,
    I’m a conceptual photographer from Israel, Really enjoyed your speech- but i’m commenting here
    because I nearly fell off my seat when you spoke about your “one-eyed Photographer”ness and the whole
    seeing 3d Planes in 2d.

    I too had the whole eye patch thing for five years as a kid, with all of its lovely trauma
    and social oddness being a one eyed dude entails(which was made worse by the fact that I had a Skin colored patch you were supposed to put stickers on, but my sister took the stickers, thus leaving me looking like I didnt even have an eye hole)

    Anyway, I have been preaching my theories for a while now about how the fact the my brain transaltes
    3d space and scenes through a 2d eye, and how I think it has helped me as a photographer.

    My brother likes to joke, saying “God wanted to give Ronen a really good Eye, so…he did..one.”

    I thought I was the only one, so glad you shared that little anecdote, keep up the good work!

    My conceptual series “The Surrealistic Pillow” can be found here-

    Cheers from Israel!
