Going places

I view photography as a means to take viewers to different places. It's not so much capturing an accurate representation of a time and place. It's using what I know about exposure, depth of field, light and color to capture the thoughts and feelings I associate with the time and place.

I've mentioned the music of Steve Wick a few times in the past. Steve tries to do with sound what I try to do with pictures - take people places. Steve is a master at weaving guitar with other live and synthestic instrumentation to capture the colors and moods of places he's been. His previous album is appropriately titled Incidents of Travel.

Steve has a new album coming out soon and I had the privilege of shooting some photos of Steve for the CD jacket. I tried to capture visually what Steve is about aurally. The photo Fingerdance, from a couple of posts ago, is Steve at work, although it doesn't look like work.

Interesting point there you try to do with a camera what I attempt with paint...
