These new Paul Octavious prints just took my breath way. Absolutely stunning!
(Thank you Rusty)
one word: wow!
hmmm… I think you’re giving him too much credit. Although they are nice to look at I can’t imagine how difficult it would to create this look with a DSLR+ND filter+long exposure+PS. Sometimes we just hype things up more than they should. Just saying. ;-)
@Erick P yes, but would you have *thought* of doing it? ;-)
@Erick, comments like yours baffle me. It’s not about how difficult it is to do something, it’s about actually doing it. Paul Octavious constantly puts out interesting art. He is a maker. A doer. A hustler. He earns my respect and I *absolutely love* these prints.
@Ben: Yes, I actually have done that in the past. Ironically, I was a DJ and have a huge vinyl collection and I’ve totally played around with similar shots. I just never published them or thought of sharing them as art. I had fun with it but never put it out there. Perhaps, that was my mistake for not sharing with the world, but back then I did it for the enjoyment not the recognition.
At the end of the day it’s all subjective and I’m truly not trying to offend. Just speaking my mind, that’s all. You and Swissmiss may disagree and that’s cool. It’s funny how this industry works, some people are total design snobs and some others are accepting of everything.
Thanks for introducing me to Paul Octavious.
Reminds me of this work from Chad Hagan though:
Are they easy to recreate? Perhaps.
Are they simple? Yes.
Could I have thought of it myself? Maybe.
Is any of that relevant? No.
Why not? They are beautiful prints. Who cares. I’d love to own one.
Art is about the complexity of creation and the simplicity of execution.
Nothing is relevant but how you feel experiencing it.
Reminds me of work from Chad Gerth.
These are lovely but I enjoyed the series my husband did twelve years ago much more:
