Here is another example from my recent photographic trip to Italy where I had to work through a difficult situation with many restrictions but in the end was rewarded with an image I really like. The artwork was made in the Vatican Museum which is really beautiful and amazing, but as you can imagine very strict with rules about what and how you can photograph. This image is an overlapping frame panoramic (3 frames, in camera) of two different tapestries… I visualized my final image and selectively chose different elements from two different tapestries to create a new tapestry of my own.

Below find new artworks from my recent photographic trip to Italy. All of the images below were shot on an XA 4 using Kodak Ektar film. I am still scanning and editing my film and anticipate finishing this body of work in a month or two, at which time I will post a complete portfolio. No titles yet; just basic information with each image for identification purposes. The last image in the series however is a photograph of a finished printed artwork from this series and as such has additional information.
To view additional artworks made using this technique please view my A New Eden Artworks.
One last image made since my return and after figuring out how to do this technique on the Rollei 35… experimentation is key!

An audio blog discussing common mistakes made by photographers that damage their bodies and prevent their full creative potential… anyone have a bad back or shoulder from carrying their gear?! Suggestions are given on proper computer setup, thoughts on carrying gear for the long haul and general information and examples on staying well and balanced as a photographic artist.
The audio blog can be listened to by clicking on the RED CROSS.
How To Setup Your Computer: Ergonomics
I decided to keep a quick audio journal on my recent photographic trip to Italy. Each day recording is around 2 or 3 minutes long, with thoughts on light, travel and places visited as well as on what worked and what didn’t. Also see the snapshots below of places mentioned in the audio, as well as yours truly in Rome… note the well traveled BBB2 (also note how the flash is illuminating the reflective panel… this level of safety is really nice in a city like Rome with its somewhat questionable driving regulations!)

Hybrid Artist Stephen M. Schaub summarizes his 2 week photographic excursion in Puerto Rico with suggestions and real world shooting solutions for the working photographer. Upcoming related audioblogs will include: film tests for the new Kodak TMY-2 (TMAX 400) and The Y Strap User Report.
During the next two weeks I will be photographing in the rainforest of Puerto Rico and surrounding areas. During this time I will be testing the new Kodak TMAX 400 (35mm) film and plan on a full report upon my return. Initial testing done by me at Indian Hill Imageworks indicates that this may be my new favorite film (best 400 speed I’ve ever seen)…amazing grain (almost as good as most 100 speed films) with a huge tonal range. Stay tuned!
Viva La Revolution!!
