I have so many photos from Burning Man that I am excited to post! A lot of them are using a special style that I experimented with while there, even though the one below is one of my standard HDR jobs.
Daily Photo – Burning Man Art
I keep thinking about how much fun I had at Burning Man!
Before I went, I was really wondering… I’m usually good at imagining what a new experience might be like by comparing it to others and intuitively filling in the gaps. But, since I am quite open to new experiences, everything flowed very easily there and it was a good artistic shock to my system.
People spend all year creating fabulous works of art that they display on the playa. At night, everything amps up to a whole new level… just wandering aimlessly for hours will be stimulating to dark corners of your right brain.
This statue below, by Marco Cochrane, is called “Bliss Dance”. It’s a 40′ structure made out of an intricate mesh of steel. The lights around it would cycle through various color mixes every few seconds.
Even though I took many photos of this great piece, this one is my favorite. I felt like to really show the scale and relevence of the piece that I needed to include regular sized humans and the expanse of the playa at the perfect time of the evening. Usually, as you know, I don’t talk about all the elements that go into the photo… I feel like talking too much about the artistic creation of the photo takes away from it a bit… But then again, I’m just not objective about it… what do you think?
