What is The Fuse?
Hey there!! So what is The Fuse all about? With all of the photography blogs out there, it's quite difficult to create one that is unique, interesting, and not already being done. While I certainly consider this blog to be a "photography blog," I don't want it to be plagued with technical mumbo jumbo like lighting theory, camera controls and settings, etc. etc. While all of that stuff is vital to creating worthy images, theres enough blogs that already cover these topics. Don't get me wrong though. I will certainly offer the occasional technical post, particularly in the form of a photography tip or tidbit, but long, drawn-out discussions on photography technology....NO. So, now that I've talked about what this blog is not about, let's talk about what it IS about. The Fuse is about creating photographic art in the 21st century, and taking advantage of all the current "tools" out there to really make your images stand out. It's about fusing together, piece by piece (or layer by layer), different elements of photography goodness to develop your artistic vision on a digital canvas. Intrigued yet? Well, I'm just getting started.... The Fuse is a place to get your daily dose of 'eye candy', and hopefully feel inspired to create some of your own. The Fuse will also provide alot of great information and opportunity that will keep your finger on the pulse of the modern photography world. Tips and hints to help improve your skills, links to the hottest videos, tutorials, and websites, the buzz about great photo opps in every U.S. state, and much more. Once we get enough followers, we'll kick it up a notch and add critiques, photo contests, and opportunities to have your photos posted on The Fuse. Most importantly, this blog was developed for you. Please let me know what you want to see, hear, do, and read about. I promise to keep it interesting if you promise to help keep the fuse lit.
