Transitions and Cycles http://dbardes.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/5/transitions-and-cycles  

Spring is nearly at an end, and many big plans have yet to manifest. But even as I strive for a new direction, I find myself returning to familiar tools and memes. But always with a twist. Below is an image I would not have looked at twice a few years ago, but it is a new favorite image because of the aspects that it does not have. Missing are the impression of a large scale, or the use of dramatic lighting; aspects I have looked to include in my images. It is most certainly still a landscape image, but with a quieter voice. I have treated it as "Pictorialist" image with a warm tone and a modest softening of details. I believe this image speaks of gentle waters returning to the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.

New Year, New Direction, Great Opportunity! http://dbardes.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/new-year-new-direction-great-opportunity Here is a great opportunity to own 14 of my favorite images! These were the very same images that were displayed at the Sage Gallery this Fall. If you look very closely, you can see that they have shifted just a bit yellow. Because they are not pristine, I can't sell them at my regular price, but I would sure like to find them a nice home. I am offering all 14 10"x 15" images for $95. Please email me if you are interested (dbardesimages@gmail.com)

Welcome to 2016 http://dbardes.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/1/welcome-to-2016  

Welcome to a new year and new possibilities. Look for a significant change in the direction in my photography. 2015 was a year of personal growth and sadly, fewer opportunities to create images. In 2016, I will be using my new insight and applying it to my art - Stay Tuned!

Soggy and Serene http://dbardes.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/7/soggy-and-serene broken liliesbroken lilies The Meditation for Photography workshop was soggy and serene. After many weeks of dry warm weather, a misty morning greeted us at Rood Bridge Park. Soft light, and gentle guided meditations combined for a beautiful morning. Although a change into dry clothing was needed at the end of the program. Look forward to this and other workshops to be posted here.

Meditation and Photography http://dbardes.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/7/meditation-and-photography  

This Saturday, members of the Portland Photographer's Forum will be joining me for a morning of meditation and photographic exploration in Hillsboro's Rood Bridge Park. I will be leading them in warm ups, demonstrations and guided meditation. We will have opportunities to apply the concepts and aspects of the meditation to explore the familiar with new eyes.
