Piano Keyboard

Piano Keyboard

I’ve always appreciated narrow vertical or horizontal photographs, whether it was done with a panorama camera, a old banquet camera, stitching together of multiple images or as in this case a tight crop.  I’ve never had great success in posting them with many web based platforms distorting them horribly one way or another but this image of a piano keyboard seems to hold up quite nicely and is available at Fine Art America.

Everyone can take a picture of a building, add the movement away from the realm of reality by incorporating the long exposure streaky cloud feel and the now almost universal Joel post-processing nous. But a photograph is not a picture; it is the imbuing of pixels with part of the artists’ soul, telling a story not via one image but via a holistic series with an over-arching vision and statement. We must not lose sight of fine art; by all means learn high end post-processing, but do not forget to leave a part of you in every image you produce.

The above excerpt was taken from a blog posting titled: The State of Fine Art Photography Today written by Charles Paul Azzopardi, a great read for all those involved in fine art photography.

The past few weeks has seen me trying to get all my social media platform posts up to date and coherent.  It definitely has been a learning experience with more then a few back steps, but I do seem to be having some success in using these tools to get my name out there.  One thing I did learn is do not ask about Google+ in a facebook marketing group, the social media platform brand loyalty is simply amzing and a little scarey.

I have admired and followed Dave Beckerman on the web since the late 90’s and of course have reentered him into my circles on Google+.  To my surprise Dave has 1,514,132 followers and 16,223,441 views!  That is a lot of exposure.  My questions are:  How did he do this; what tricks, if any did he employ or did all of this come from his hard work over the relatively few years Google+ has been in existance?  Any insights or answers would be much appreciated.

Over the past few days have also been playing around with 500px.com  where my work can be found at:  http://bit.ly/1a7ULYI.  To my amzement My color image of a wine bottle and glass reached a pulse rating of 98.5; from the article I read at Mikes Blog I’m thinking this is real good.  So stop by and add it as a favorite.

Enjoy my images and stop by Fine Art America in April for a discount on all my floral images.  As always feel free to repost, share, like, promote and comment on any of my images!

Piano 2

A photographic study of a old uprihgt piano

This old but much played piano was located at “Daniels,” a restaurant that was located in Nobleton Ontario.  Although I never heard him, Jeff Healey loved this old upright and apparently would venture north to play it at least a few times a year.  Although the restaurant is now closed and up for lease, I can only hope this beauty has found another home and plays on.

Piano

A photographic study  of a well used and played upright piano.They were given or presented to us on our first day of music class, most of them perfect in their protective cases or coverings. But that was soon to change being under the charge and care of teenage or child musicians. Once the pride of a adolescent musician or a high school band they are soon forgotten and relegated to a corner of a dusty warehouse to await their fate.  Each piece with their dents, bruises and worn off finish, a story to tell, and if we’re lucky fond memories of forgotten music for us.

This piano image, now available at Fine Art America and is part of the new gallery Forgotten Music,  feel free to like and share the image.

I am pleased to announce that I’m also starting a zazzle page to sell my images in smaller sizes, on post cards, coffee cups, and other appropriate items. My question is this: Will my images benefit in sales advertising and page hits if i add my signature somewhat clearly to the bottom of these images? Any ideas, feelings and comments are most welcome.

As usual here follows my Fine Art America sponsored search pages, feel free to click on any of them and enjoy the art.
