Peacock Flower by Frank Bliss (ART) Laser Painting

In the winter blooming flowers are not common up here except in my Aquaponic greenhouse. This Amaryllis flower just started blooming but Could I Leave It Alone?…….. Of course not. All work and no play makes Frank a dull boy 😜.

SO, turn off the lights at night, get a good LED photographic studio light set up (it’s wet down there lol). Front light the flower and everything else black. Then get a violet laser with a circular swirl pattern lens installed on it. (A 1 watt laser spread out or it would have burnt through in a heartbeat. The illusion of a peacock was was I was looking / working for.

I don’t get to do studio work too often. I get a few photos for a lot of work in a studio. Where in the backcountry, I spend the same time for literally hundreds of photos. Setting up little areas of zen while a lot of fun, creating such illusionary scenes. There are so many already out in the world just waiting for us to see them. Humans are generalists, as a result, miss the little things taking in the whole scene instead. Photographers and Artists tend to “Zoom” in to those areas in the scene that have artistic attributes / qualities. I go out into the world and have to ignore the things I see to get other things done lol. Even I catch myself without the right camera in my hand lolol. (rule one of Photography, have a camera with you).

Painting with a Violet Laser into Orion’s Chest

Painting with a Violet Laser into Orion's Chest

I took this at 4:30 Saturday Morning. I was painting Orion’s Chest with a high powered violet laser. It’s all about painting with light in reality. The orange is from the sodium vapor light on the lodge, the green from an LED light over 100 yards away in the barnyard. This is a 10 second time lapse, tripod mounted shot.

I’m just having fun at 4:30 AM lolol.

Looking Through the Rainbow

Looking through the rainbow is a difficult thing to do. At several miles out, this left leg of this rainbow was an effective filter for the landscape beyond. It gave me a whole new appreciation of this process .

I’ll be hit or miss on posting the next few days but I’m starting to figure out the software side of this gallery thing… . We are still having some bugs.

Have a great Sunday Night and I’m just happy to be able to post after my first weekend miss in several years.. :).
