And it is no surprise that his admonitions to photographers carry the same message: think clearly, act sensibly, commit yourself to caring and work hard in order to discover joy. Then give the images back to the world from which they were taken. He has written:
“In previous ages the word ‘art” was used to cover all forms of human skill. The Greeks believed that these skills were given by the gods to man for the purpose of improving the condition of life. In a real sense, photography has fulfilled that Greek ideal of art; it should not only improve the photographer, but also improve the world.”
Had a great evening taking professional headshots for a customer today. We used two different lighting setups, one was a traditional three light setup and the other was a more painterly setup that I’ve been experimenting with recently. The client needed professional headshots for their LinkedIn profile and for other resume websites. If you are looking for a professional headshot photographer in Blacksburg, VA be sure to contact me.
Great show last night. Thanks for the invite James.

Monday night documenting Summer in the Burg.
Quick trip on foot around campus at lunch today. Pretty hot out there and not a lot happening under the blazing mid-say sun.
