Our goal is to learn our way into the future.
Instead of perfection and getting it right the first
time, innovation can be continuous and core
rather than episodic.

Like Texture?

There are so many fantastic textures in this country!  Everywhere I go I’m shooting random mosses and cracks .  I thought I’d share some with you!!  (You can never have too many textures to play with, right?)

Invert the colours, make black and white, make black and white then invert, stretch and shrink… so many things you can do to make them uniquely your own.  

Send me an email to ingeniousimagesphoto@gmail.com with “CR Textures” in the subject line and I’ll send you your personal link to the download of these FREE 12, high-res images (2 aren’t shown here). Enjoy and I’d love to see what you do with them, so feel free to post your images below!!

We’ve been transfixed by this incredible series of double exposures by Beijing-based photographer Xiao Yang.

In Love Letters, Xiao creates dreamy portraits against the backdrop of abandoned buildings and derelict structures.

I LIKE TO CREATE A SPACE FOR DISCOVERY, A FIRST MOMENT WHERE YOU CAPTURE WHAT IS OBVIOUS IN THE PIECE, WHERE YOU CAN CONSUME IT IN THE FIRST INSTANT. BUT AS YOU COME CLOSER, YOU DISCOVER THERE’S MORE TO IT AND YOU START TO DECONSTRUCT IT.

- JOANA VASCONCELOS

Feedback Please!
You have opinions, right?!  I’m looking for some feedback on this image.  (I know the makeup is awful, I’m working on that, too…) I’m not completely satisfied with the edit but I’m not sure what it needs or what should change.  How’s the colour work? Is it too soft?  Not enough?  So I’m throwing it out to you - we learn from each other, right??
