The Cat is Out Of the Bag & It Likes Fresh Air!


Well the secrets out, cats out of the bag, cap blown off, and the angles are signing. It’s official, I am more excited than god like Odysseus when he first laid eyes on  Ithaca. Thanks to my good friend and colleague, Miwaza, (who did most the work) www.petermahar.com is a reality. It’s open for business and we want you to stop by. There is a lot of changes, like being able to leave a comment after each post, single pushing bottoms that teleport you to other cool things, more integration, and way more visually appealing than this one. Not to mention more posts.

Folks, my muchness is back and I cant help but share it with you! So head on over and tell me what you think. I need your help to test it out and see if you have any problems. What do you like? What do you not like? I want to hear it all. And hey, even leave a post while you are at it

Amara Zion Hayes

You can click here to watch a video with more pictures


Boy was she fun to photograph. The location was perfect, beautiful lighting, and great subjects. Overall, the Hayes family is a very photogenic, and a delightful presence.

It was a few Saturdays now that we did the shoot, and the day was beautiful. The thing with photographing kids is that you never know how it will go. One minute they are very happy and easy to photograph, the next…well you can fill in the rest. Anyway, the trick with that kind of photo shoot is being very precise and fast. The issue with being fast, is that you can’t always be very precise, so….ya, that causes some difficulties. However, they are the most exciting and rewarding photo shoots because when you  capture “the shot,” it is all the more satisfying.

I normally have about an hour, but depending on the kids that can very dramatically. I arrived at their humble abode and checked out the shooting location, scouted out the areas where I could shoot, and immediately formed a few shots in my head that I knew I wanted to capture. Unpacked my lights, set them up, and boom, the shoot had begun.

At first Amara seemed unsure, but after a few calming and fun words from her dad she smiled right up. At which case is the most critical point in the photographing process, a few brief minutes of genuine joy and smiles all around. The dirty little secret is take lots of pictures, and hope one of them is GREAT, just make sure you don’t forget about your composition. It was amazing, right when my time hit the hour, Amara was done with me taking her pictures, and I was confident I snapped some good ones. Success!

Cheers,

Peter M.

Convenience. “THAT WAS EASY.”


Click here for album

You can’t beat ease of use. Convenience is something every technology seems to gravitate towards. With one single device we can check our mail, listen to music, schedule meeting, tweet, upload, share, take pictures, find locations, browse the web, and yes even make calls. These once called phones are becoming super devices, able to do anything but make calls it seems like. I am finding that the hardest thing to do on my phone is make a call, I have to push 4-5 different buttons (or I can use voice activated control to make things more convenient).

Anyway my point of all the smart phone talk and modern-day technology is that almost every phone has a camera built-in. What does this mean? Ease of use, conveniences, and shots that are more raw and rustic, more pure and in the moment. I will admit my big SLR captures great quality shots and allows for more flexible types of shots (i.e action, low light, multi shot, etc)  than my phone, but the phone has something my SLR doesn’t. Size. Because it is so small people are not as intimidated, thus you are able to capture people in their element. So many times I see a photographic moment and I pull out my SLR and people instantly freeze. Plus its always there, so if I see something that is even remotely interesting I can pull it out and click the capture button, conveniently located where my thumb lies on the phone.

These are some shots with my phone that I probably would not have been able to get with my SLR. Simply put, phone pictures are a different class of photos, not better or worse, but different. And different can be a good think.

Cheers,

We Are Creative Beings

Every now and then we come across a gold nugget in advertising. After seeing the advertisement, you say the words “wow” in your mind. These rare gems are what really spark my creative motor and starts it revving in full blast. There is something really cool about a good advertisement that not only expresses its message, but does so in such a creative and new way. When you take something you hear about all the time, like “click it or tick it”, we almost become numb to the message because we are creative beings and repetition of the same message becomes dull. But when creativity leaks in, and bursts through the pipes you better be there and catch any creative juices that come your way.

This advertisement sang to me like a sweet melody, like that first sizzle of onions on the frying pan. Just something about it gives you chills. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.

We are creative beings, and love watching creative people. How are you creative?

Cheers

Gold’s Value Sky Rockets!

Guess what!? One of my photos was chosen by Clark College to showcase their students talents! They use multiple students works to show their donators the talent at Clark. One of my teachers actually submitted my site to the committee and they contacted me from there to let me know they wanted to use my photo “Gold Dust.” I was thrilled. Excited. Someone wants to use my photo!? To show talent? Really cool, and just the kind of fuel I need to help me keep on taking pictures.

But then it hit me, the photo they wanted was one I had taken a few years ago, and a few years ago I did not organize, let alone save all the photos I took. They wanted “Gold Dust,” but I didn’t know where it was L. Almost heart-broken because finally someone want to show my work and I might not have the original file!

In a desperate search I looked over my computer (maybe, just maybe I was smart and saved it in my “old comp pics” folder). Nothing. So I called my Dad because he has my old comp with the old hard drive. It was the last desperate measure, because I had given him the ok to wipe the memory clean awhile ago. But I had to take a chance, maybe he hadn’t. So I called and he was able to find it! Sweet.

So this is the finished product that they are sending out, I hope you like it.

Oh P.S I also realized after all that, that I had saved all my old comps pictures on another hard drive, it just wasn’t with me. So I am good.

Lesson Learned? Save everything!

Cheers,

Peter M.

Jon Russell

This will be a short post. I have had the opportunity to take Jon Russell’s photos for his campaign. I took some of the pictures at his Medical Center (Owner of Columbia George Medical Center). Then today we did some more basic portrait shots.

I went to Olimpia with a guy a few years back to petition against som

___________________________________________________________________________________________

e bills that were being passed, and it so happens that he is now helping Jon campaign which is how I got refered to him. It is very funny because in all my dreams of photography and the kinds of pictures I would be doing, never did I think I would be takings pictures for people running for congress.

Morgan M. Morgansen’s Date with Destiny

Click here for the video

Click here for the video

“Regular Joe”, or you might know him as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, playing in such movies as “10 Things I Hate About You” has done quite well for himself. Becoming a creative artist, he uses the internet to weld his creative power and share his status with others. He has created a site, http://www.hitrecord.org , that is open to all who have creative outlet. Anyone can join and upload one of their creative works. Here is the rundown of what happens. Someone uploads a scrip, someone else reads it and decides they want to add music to it. Then another person adds a recording of someone reading the script, and so on and so forth. When Joe (the creator of the site) sees something with potential he puts his resources to back it up and try to make something of it.

But wait. If it makes money do the people who contributed get credit or “dough” for their efforts you might ask? They absolutely do, the profits are split 50/50 and anyone that contributes gets credit. The result is creative people from all over the world working on one project until it is complete. Absolutely fascinating. It used to be that big networks used to dictate what was considered good and bad. Now the field is wide open to anyone that wants to “play” at the creative game. Almost everyone has the material to take pictures, video, paint, draw ect… and all it takes is a few clicks on twitter, face book, veimo, and/or YouTube to share it with people from all around the world. FANTASTIC!

Anyway the above video is one of http://www.hitrecord.org latest productions that was just showed at the Sundance Film Festival. I thought the script was fascinating and the idea brilliant and I had to share it. I hope you find it as thrilling as I did. And think, someone like you and me could have added something to that video. The flowers flowing out from the Personette is just someone’s photograph that they uploaded, and someone else digitized it and multiplied it into the effect that it is.

Technology!

Cheers,

Peter M.

Grace At the Train Station

Click here if you want to see a slide show of the days shoot

Grace Hayes. If you could sum her up in one word it would be “happy“! You can tell from the photos that Grace never left a beat to show her smile. The photo shoot was at the Portland train station last Saturday, and I think the pictures turned out great, you will have to let me know what you think.

When we were almost done shooting inside when one of the security guards came up to me and asked if I was a professional photographer. Red flags went up in my head. He probably felt the need to ask this because there was a girl being photographed by a photographer with a very expensive looking camera, and another guy holding up a great big circular reflector thing which made the scene look professional. Knowing where he was going with the question I merely told him that I was taking a friends senior pictures (which I was). He gave me a raised eye brow and told me that I should go over to the front entrance and read the photography protocol sign. I would like to add that the sign was very small, it was not even a sign for that matter, it was more like a piece of paper standing up that was being hidden by other real looking boards.

Anyway, lucky for us we were already done. Although there was another incident during the shoot. One of the people waiting asked if Grace was someone famous, Grace of course played in to that a bit, and we got some good laughs.

Thanks so much Grace, Mary, and Nick for a great shoot. Had lots of fun!

Until next time,

Cheers

Taste of Amsterdam

Here’s a little taste of Amsterdam. Food was great, scenery was spectacular, and the people were just about the nicest you could meet. One thing though, bikes… everywhere. And I mean everywhere. There are more bikes then there are people, and they pull up some 50,000 out of the canal’s yearly. It could be more I don’t remember. Anyway I hope you enjoyed the little bit of the culture “bug”.

Cheers,

Rainbow

Ubber Spectacular! Walking to my car, after I was done for the day, I spotted the rainbow in the above picture. Simply wowed. Rarely do I see full rainbows like that, and with such intensity of color. I have been reading through Genesis and the rainbow reminded me of Gods promises to us. It was very comforting to me in many ways. No matter what trials God has put in your life right now, know that he is good to  those that look to him and put their trust on him. Psalm 115:12-15 tells us that “The Lord remembers us and will bless us… he will bless those who fear the Lord – small and great alike. May the Lord make you increase, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Anyway saw it and thought I would share it.

Cheers,

THE BURNING SHOP

I ask where the boys are. They say they are out back in the shop. So I scurry to the shop to see what they are up to. As soon as I open the shop door a plume of smoke races out with ash like particles buzzing around. Almost like a volcanic eruption just occurred in their humble shop. In shock and horror, because I had thought the shop itself was burning down, I scanned the room processing all the info I could to see where the “fire” was coming from. Much to my surprise it was coffee roasting, only not your typical brew. They were cooling off the freshly roasted coffee beans with a fan which was the cause of the ash like particles and smoke. The aroma/smoke was first harsh but then comforting and soothing, much like the first whiff of your fresh morning brew.

Asa and Chris had set up a whole shop for roasting their own coffee beans. I had made it to heaven, and it smelt good. Each breath felt like energy flowing into my veins, pulsating my heart with excitement. Quickly grabbing my camera phone (only one on me at the time) I got them cooling off the beans with the smoke all around them.

After this, I went to my car for my favorite tool (my DSLR), time to bring out the big guns. I was able to hang around and watch another batch get made and cool off. Great fun and right up my ally. Stay tuned because I hope to go back more ready and perhaps with better lighting, and document the process. For once in my life the photographic opportunity was not my cup of tea, but rather my cup of java.

Cheers,

Peter M.

-Noise-


It was like walking into a stampede of Wildebeests, after a group of no good hyenas spooked the living day lights out of them. Sound. Noise. Crazy lights. As if a drug bust was occurring and the Vancouver police force had arrived with their lights blazing. This crazy site, with noise and lights everywhere, with people scrambling this way and that like a bunch of Wildebeests was Big Al’s on a Saturday.

Right when I walked in, it was information overload. Like having a life-size bell thrown on top your head with strobe lights attached along the inside of it, and then rung until it makes its victims bleed from the ear. I of course am making the site sound a little more dramatic than it was, but no excuses, it was wild for sure.

More often than not, I am finding that when I don’t have my camera with me, I have my phone camera which does the trick. However, after much reflection I still don’t get why I didn’t get a shot of the place. That’s probably because it was hard enough trying to focus on taking the next step in front of you.

At any rate, the top two pictures are at Big Al’s and the bottom is just something I saw on the ground outside and was intrigued.

Cheers,

Peter M.

POP Culture

Click the image to see the rest

“Popular culture (commonly known as pop culture) is the totality of ideas, perspectives, attitudes, memes,[1] images and other phenomena that are deemed preferred per an informal consensus within the mainstream of a given culture, specifically Western culture of the early to mid 20th century and the emerging global mainstream of the late 20th to 21st century. Heavily influenced by mass media, this collection of ideas permeates the everyday lives of the society.” (Wiki)

Today in my  chemistry class, my teacher told us of the acronym POP, which stands for Praise, Observation, and Polish, POP. I instantly drew many spider-like lines through my brain connecting the acronym with the idea of POP Culture. I instantly realized that “yes science is everywhere”, even in the arts. Because I think of my photography, and photography in general for that matter, with the idea of POP. Praising what is out there, Observing what has been done, and finally Polish, perfect the art in every way we can. This idea linked with Chase Jarvis’s new slogan of “Create-Share-Sustain” and I think we have ourselves an explosion of creativity the size of an atom bomb.

So I embarked on this new adventure, and to start, I have documented my “life” in some ways with my new camera phone. Many people think it is all about the fancy camera with all the fantastic gadgets. Oh contraire, it’s what we capture on the picture that becomes more appealing to us. I am learning, and I would like to document more of people but that can be difficult at times. For now I am documenting what I can in a different perspective from others and hope you find interest in the mean time. The above pictures are all taken with my camera phone and the “edits” to them was all done on camera as well. So go out and take some pictures of your life, try looking at the world through a lens, and I guarantee you will see things that you never seen before. It is quite lovely, and is one of the many reasons I fell in love with photography. *NOTE you can click the image on top to see the rest.

Until next time,

Cheers,

Peter M.

BACK FROM BREAK

I hope everyone had a great break. I know I did. But now it is back to reality. I really don’t know what to write about, and I wish I had some videos for your guys but I just have not done anything recently. I did get a phone for Christmas (Droid Eris). Very slick little thing. Fully equipped to do my bidding at a touch of a finger. I am digging the camera phone on it with it’s  5 megapixel lens, zoom and auto focus, and built-in editing software for lighting and contrast. Very slick for parties and the such.
As for upcoming stuff, I hope to get a video made of the upcoming book of the CREC mission trip to Legnica Poland, so keep an eye open for that.
Also I am doing a research paper on Photoshop and have no idea what exactly to focus on. I love Photoshop and it is a big asset to my photography and what I do. But is there ethical issues with how “far” one takes it. I want to show the positive sides of Photoshop but not yet sure how to do it. If you guys have any suggestions or feedback on the matter I would love to hear it.
Until then
Cheers, and stay dry

“WHATS YOUR ONE THING”

We have often heard the phrase “What’s your one thing” in relationship to global warming, and your one thing being how you are putting a stop to it. This got me to think a little bit, and surprisingly enough I came up with an entirely different approach.

Here is how I came about it. Just yesterday I called my sister on the phone and got her voice mail, and to my surprise I found myself leaving a message. You must note that the Peter Mahar I know hates, dreads, even afraid to leave messages on phones. Makes the guy feel…well just strange. On top of that, the message I left was not important what so ever, merely a how are you doing call. After realizing what I had done, I remembered that I had left three messages on three different peoples phones that very day. Thinking further still, I found I had been leaving messages on peoples phones when they did not answer.

Surprised at this whole new realization, like a fish out of water realizes he is not breathing what he needs, I set forth to examine what else I had done differently. Wow, I thought to myself. I have been doing lots of things out of the norm. For a guy like me I stick to routine (nothing wrong with that), but because I stick to my routine I never end up venturing out and doing new things.

However, the last few weeks changed everything. I not only found myself leaving messages on peoples phones, but I found myself running in the mornings, reading a book, tanning, creating slide shows, managing my site, and finally WRITING. And I have never felt better. Perhaps it is the meticulous sunrays of Florida beating down into my skull causing slight radiation to my brain preventing me from feeling down, but rather causing me to see the bright side of life. Or perhaps it’s the reading of an exciting book that gets my attention off the real drama story of life. Or maybe, just maybe it is because of the fact that I am doing new and different things that it creates more excitement in my day. Like reshuffling on your iPod, listening to the same string of music in the same order for years can be boring.

So why the title of “What’s Your One thing?”. Well the fact of the matter is, it has absolutely no connection to global warming or saving the earth what so ever. Rather it is a calling out, an SOS, a cry to be heard. What is your one thing? What is one thing that you will do that you have never done before, or in a long time? It’s the New Year, 2010, do something different, get out of the box and into the “sun”. Smell the roses, and live a little.  After choosing your one thing (or ten things, don’t limit yourself) tell me what it is. I want to hear all about it, and I want ideas for myself to try and do new things. Because if you do your one thing, you just might make the world a better place.

Cheers,

Peter M.

DEATH BY A PHOTOGRAPHER

What would you do for that one shot? I am of course referring to photography “shot”. Not the traditional “shot at your dreams”. Well for the light-hearted photographer, probably not much. But for you die-hard photographers out there, (you know who you are) you would go through lengths to get that shot. Right?

Well I would. I would even go through the lengths of lying in a street, at twelve o’clock at night, new years day. Sounds crazy right? None sense, it was completely safe…or so I thought. Lying there with my eyes transfixed on the lens in front of me to get a self-portrait, I set the timer for five sec, with a ten sec shutter. *Click. The shutter opens and I stay still, very still, like looking at a motion bomb right in the eye, any movement and all is done for, the picture would be blurry. One second goes by. Then two. Followed by three. Then I hear a car behind me. Most of them turning the corner, I thought I would do the “risky business” and stay lying down taking my chances, you know not to mess up the shot. Four. Five. Eyes still transfixed on the lens I see headlights reflecting off the Nikon glass, like two cat eyes in the dark starring right back fearlessly into mine. Six. Heart pounding. Seven. Eight. *Honk*. I fly up, as if a bee just stung my butt. Grabbing my camera, move to the side. Nine. Ten. *Click*.

Then, after erecting myself up off the ground, I give a hearty hello wave to the man in the van. He stares back, with a gaze of bewilderment, anger, caution, with a little shock mixed in the “drink of emotion”. I was “shaken, not stirred.”

Taking a deep breath, inhaling the sulfuric air from fireworks, mixed with a blanket of salty sweat from the humidity, I feel calm once more, just a little sick. Some might call me crazy.  I might even call me crazy, but hey I got some cool shots. I even got one by mistake, but it took a near death experience to get it. I hope you like it.

Cheers, and Happy New Years

*One Whole Year Of Photography Gone By*

Another day, another blog entry. Well I will keep this short and sweet seeing how Jake (Bros Dog) is whining because my brother and sister went for a run. Anyhow, this is a little “Ad” I worked up to help promote the next years work of photography. Hope you like

*KEY WEST*

Ah Key West. What does one say about Key West. Well I was lucky enough to over hear a larger man behind me talking with his friend. He said something like this. “You wanna know something about Key West?” He said to his friends in a tank top, pop belly, and a few scruffy hairs on his neck, as if he forgot to shave that morning. “The thing about Key West is, the richest people will look like they are from the slums and the poorest of poor will be walking around in a suit. You just never know with these people.”

Well there you have it. Ok, well maybe that is not what I would say about Key West. But it sure was touristy, and it did have plenty of poor and rich looking people. People moving here and there like aunts collecting food for their nest, mopeds zipping by on the streets, and the occasional showy motorcycle rider who feels the need to reeve up his very loud motor at a stop light, all of which to let off a little excess testosterone. Then we had some people dressed up as pirates, wearing ravish jewelry, gnarled faces, and of course, the famous parrot. I would have taken a picture of the guy if he was more impressive to look at, and I feared I would have to give him my “booty” if I took his picture.

* JAMES CAMERON – Friend or Foe to the Photography Realm?*

Resent blockbuster hit “Avatar”, James Cameron realistically paints an entire new world. In this new glowing spectacular jungle of lizard helicopter thingies, and reptiles with hammers for noses, you can’t argue that it looks life-like. If someone told you he had traveled to a far distant planet to do his filming you might actually believe them because it looks so real. Also the mere fact that he spent well over 250 million and 5 years making the thing might also be a reason to believe it.

However James Cameron did the majority of filming using the Green Screen. But now we have to look closer. Is the man cheating? I mean this is not a real world; he is simply manipulating what is already there into a new form of life. He is simply changing what he sees, to fit that what he sees in his mind. Well I bring this up because Photoshop (for photographers) works in a very similar matter. In fact we sometimes even use green screens ourselves so we can recreate the image.

Some people have problems with this, saying it is “not its true form anymore”, or “editing the image too much, makes it into something entirely different then photography”. But I argue that it is simply photography evolving into something different, and I think far more spectacular. We are able to show people what we see in a whole new way. For the movie world, James Cameron has really hit an explosive phenomenon. His smash hit without a doubt will revolutionize how Hollywood makes her films. It’s not that this technology is making movies something other than movies, it is simply another tool to help showcase what is in the artist mind.

One big thing for me is always trying to show people what I am seeing. A great way to do that for me is through photography. Other people have visual media; drawing, movie making etc., or for musicians they try to show you what they hear through their music. Whatever it maybe, Photoshop for photography, is simply another tool to showcase the artist mind. People gave digital cameras a lot of the same smack they are giving Photoshop. I say embrace technology; it is coming at you fast and hot like a meteor. So are you hot enough to stand in its wake of revolution?

I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

Cheers,

Peter M.

*CHRISTMAS CHEER*

First attempt at making a gingerbread house. I gotta say, when I used to see the things I would think, wow not really all that good looking, why did they even bother. But after slaving over this one, it really made me appreciate the art of making one. So too me, this gingerbread house was a masterpiece. Although to others it might be very mediocre. At any rate I threw in some other cute pictures of my relatives. Hope you enjoy it.

Cheers,

*ITS A START*

Its 23:03, so says the apple computer on which I am writing my first blog entry. Not knowing what to write about, I sit brushing my fingers over the little rough spots of facial hair on my chin, like running your hand against Velcro. At any rate, most blogs seem to illustrate peoples lives in a magical form, no wait they are for showcasing peoples lives in an interesting way, or maybe it was that it is a place to write nonsensical, inflammatory rants, about abstract things that may or may not be relevant to this day and age.

Whatever a blog may be, I am setting a course of action to have my own blog to do with whatever I may please. To leisurely write at my expense, and flush out ideas of creativity and innovation. I hope that I will have many followers as my blog unfolds the many layers of my life in photography. Where I see it being a long road, there may be some red lights along the way (periods of time when I do not blog, for reasons unknown to me at this point in time). So what is with all this random talk about blogs, photography and I don’t even know what? Well I hope you (yes you the reader) follows me as I start to document my progress in photography. Only with your help do I hope to succeed at showing more people how I see the world. Although not many people will see this first post, it is a start to the beginning of the Peter Mahar Blog. I thank you for stopping by and appreciate the comments.

Cheers

Peter M.

  1. This looks like fun (and is going in my bookmarks, so it better be good)! ;)

    • Hey Susan thanks for stopping by! Yes I hope to not disappoint!

  2. Great job, Peter, on the Key West. I loved Lily’s goldfish. And great writing, did you have help from Hallie?

    • Thanks. Actually no help from Hallie, one note from joe saying I spelt fallowed wrong, so I changed that. So far so good. I should get an editor though, but I just dont have the time.

  3. So if Hallie didn’t help you, then I conclude you are getting quite good at this writing on your own. I notice also you have inherited some of your mother’s giftings for how she phrases things in her writing. Good job, I am very proud of you.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Good job, Peter! I love hearing people write from the heart and I can tell that’s where your words are coming from. Gorgeous pictures are always a plus. Eli and I went to Key West when we were in Florida. You can describe that place in one word: tourism. But wasn’t the water gorgeous? I also loved your pictures of Arthur and Hallie jumping into the pool (and the fact that Hallie kept her sunglasses on!).

  5. HAHA Death by a Photographer. I’m almost sure you got that phrase from me Sophomore year. Do you remember that?
    Hey btw, I like the blog. It’s great. Your photography has always impressed me but it’s even better with commentary. Like it dude.

  6. Peter, I enjoyed looking over your work. i particularly enjoyed the gingerbread reel. I guess rarely fully appreciate the effort that goes into works until we experience it firsthand. I have built three of them with my babies and they are a challenging artform. keep working at it and i will too.Best wishes in you future endevors(thats today). Chris
