Art in Salinas

Art in Salinas

If you have an artistic bone in your body you need to attend this meeting.
Art, from quilting to neon lighting, ceramics to scrap booking, wood carving to hairstyling.
If you are not an artist but love art and support art, then you need to be here for this meeting.
All of the above and more are to be discussed at this effort to bring out the artist in Salinas 

The first meeting of interested people with art  backgrounds.
 Paint media, photography, quilting, etc will be held at smoking on  
October 19th at 10:30am.

Below are some images that I use to express my contribution to art.

Some tips on photographing women:

  • For goodness sake. Please PLEASE be responsible with low shots. I very rarely see a photo of a woman taken from down low (looking up) that doesn't make her look totally unattractive. This isn't a good angle no matter the size or shape of who you’re photographing. Friends don’t let friends get photographed this way so beware that a loving friend may tackle you at any point should you choose to proceed with a low shot.
  • On the opposite side of the spectrum. shooting from above (or even a slightly down-angled POV) can be very flattering for a lady, particularly a fuller figured one. But also beware that this is the calling card of a large lady – this trick has become so well known. Don’t overdo it or you’ll be kind of highlighting the fact that she’s larger rather than minimizing it.
  • Learn from the red carpet – those poses aren’t accidental. Celebrities have training for how to handle the red carpet photographers. Learn their tricks so you can guide your subjects through poses that will highlight their lovely long legs or help minimize their postpartum baby bulge. And you don’t have to tell them what you’re doing because naturally, that will make them feel self conscious.
One hour with a sensitive professional can change a woman’s view of herself forever.
