Color Therapy

I went to the Newark museum in New Jersey, I’d say for the third or fourth time in the last three years. Anyway, I saw this beautiful piece of art. I figured why not record a video of it on my iPhone and make it something magical?

I’ve infused it with rain sounds. Stare at its colors, relax and enjoy. You’re welcome.

The three items beneath were photographed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Islamic Art department. When I look at artifacts of the ancient world, I stare at the piece and sometimes try to imagine what space the creator of the artifact was in at the time; I try to attune myself with the piece.

Focus Peaking

Experimented today with a method called “focus peaking.” It’s important to understand your camera. Thanks to YouTube, I’m continuously learning new methods, tricks, and picture-taking strategies. Also, if you do own any of the Alpha series cameras, it’s important to remember to update your firmware.
