June 1st began with the pleasure of working with artists, photographers and the staff of Trailside Nature Center at the first-ever workshop that featured birds, snakes and turtles as models. Students of all ages were welcome to use cameras or pencils to capture the colors and textures of the modeling staff. They weren’t tethered so the two hours flew by. Keep watching the Trailside calendar for all of their really enjoyable events. I know I do.
A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.
The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.
Each photograph tells a story.
