been very, very busy

    I have been very busy the last couple of weeks.  I went to Rochester, NY for Easter Weekend to see some family and friends.  (My lovely wife Tiffany grew up there) 

 I have also been cleaning and packing.  My wife and I are looking for a condo.  Yard work is a little too much for us.  (My daughter Carin and I have terrible allergies) 

I have also been getting some images for print competition.  One was for GLPA and the other is for PPA.  (The PPA one is really scaring me. )  I have to choose 4 images for that one and mail them to PPA.  My PPA approved print case is in the mail and I should have it by the end of the week.  Not too worried b/c the prints are not due until the end of the month.  I will post the images shortly.

 I have also entered an image for Face on PDN.  While you cannot vote any more, here is a link to the same image on my Facebook page.

About John-Roy Photography

Photography is the greatest form of self expression. It communicates with my soul; a kind of a “catharsis scream”. This offers me a mental release from my professional career. After using my right brain all day, it is nice to use my left brain to create something meaningful. This brings a yin and yang to my life. When I pick up my camera after work, I prefer to shoot inanimate objects. Using light, shadows and selective focus, I am attempting to give the objects a life force; allowing them to tell a story. Because of this, I sometimes tend to become lost in my perception of light and shadows. It allows me to constantly visualize different angles and perspectives of spaces and even people around me. When I photograph people, I am drawn to capturing them in communal areas. I usually try and catch people off guard to create a pensive state of being which is a window into their souls. You would be surprised how much people tend to let their guard down and become relaxed when they think no one is watching. (Ever notice how differently children behave when they know they are being watched?) I’ve come to this place of artistic expression after experimenting with several other approaches to photography. I finally listened to an art director and a close friend of mine and I redirected my work to reflect my own true artistic expression.
