Yesterday being Halloween, my office manager’s daughter flew by with her “Good Witch” costume. I knew she was coming, of course, so the studio was well-prepared.
I spent the last several weeks in a state of extremely-heightened stress. You see, Nudes in November is coming up at the Sorensen Studio – in fact, the submission period for the 2014 show was yesterday – and I desperately wanted to come up with … Continue readingRunning Dry
One of the downsides to focusing mostly on landscape photography, as I’ve been doing lately, is that I’m kind of a fair-weather guy. I also hate getting up too early in the morning, if I don’t have to do so. Oh, let’s face it. I hate it even if … Continue readingRainy Days
This past week, in addition to the fact that I had my own exhibit at Fresno’s downtown Citibank, I again entered a juried competition at the Sorensen Studio. Since I already wrote about the works I entered at the Sorensen, I won’t rehash that here; this … Continue readingThird Place Win at ArtHop™
That’s how it seems I’ve been working lately: day and night, night and day. This Thursday, October 2, 2014, from 5 p.m. until at least 7 p.m., I have my first ArtHop™ exhibition at the downtown Citibank at Kern & M Streets in Fresno. If … Continue readingDay & Night
This is a bit of an out-of-the-ordinary post for me, and for that reason, I just grabbed a ready-at-hand image I shot about a year ago at the Woodward Park Fresno Summer Jazz 2013 series #1. I had been invited there to shoot the Blu J’z, … Continue readingArtHop™ Exhibition October 2, 2014
Awhile back, a very, very, very dear friend of ours passed away. I had written this post at that time, but for reasons that are not important, I took it down. I really liked the image, and the majority of the post, but there were…issues. Not … Continue readingA Gathering of Old Friends
The subtitle for my website, which I think only shows up on mobile devices, is “The Photographic Art of Rick Horowitz.” There’s a reason I call it that, rather than “The Photography of Rick Horowitz.” Perhaps it’s because I live in an area of the … Continue readingMoon River
Just so you know, I don’t only shoot agricultural images when I shoot landscapes. Last weekend, I went to Berkeley for an Evidence seminar — my “regular” job is as a criminal defense attorney — and naturally I took along all my camera equipment.
Bunny Chafowitz and I were making plans to go out at 4 a.m. this morning to try to catch some sunrise “agscapes.” Unfortunately, my day job got in the way of being able to adequately scout out locations. Since I had no idea where we might … Continue readingHow the Sun Rolls at Night
I have been remiss. I’m shooting, but haven’t felt much like blogging lately. So maybe I’ve got a few stacked up inside me here. Anyway, last night I went out driving around starting about 6 p.m. I didn’t have any idea what I was going … Continue readingThe Hills Are Alive
Field of Dreams? For some farmers, that’s just what onions are. Frankly, I don’t know a lot about onions. I like to eat ’em. That’s about it. Recently, I decided to start trying to shoot “agscapes,” as Ryan from Horn Photo called them when I … Continue readingDon’t Cry
This website, I think, is about to undergo another makeover. If you’ve paid any attention to me — and my infrequent blogging probably does not encourage that — you know that I keep re-designing the website. There are reasons for that which go beyond “I … Continue readingExcitement Over a Storm
Stayed home all weekend, playing around with Photoshop.
Continuing the theme from the last post, today’s post is another High Dynamic Range (HDR) image. This one is true HDR, with three bracketed exposures shot with my Canon 5D Mark III. As I write this, I cannot exactly remember which restaurant is depicted. I … Continue readingOpen for Business
I’m always amazed at just what I’m learning these days. I really hope that some day, I’ll be able to make a major part of my living off photography, and be able to devote even more time to improving my skills. Slowly, but surely, I’m … Continue readingThe Calm Beneath the Storm
Yeah, sorry. I couldn’t come up with a better title. One of the things about my photographic work is that I’m not really totally wanting to “just do photography.” In almost all of the images that I capture, I want to add something of an … Continue readingDon’t Feed the Dino!
