Fine Art News - Traumbilder

Traum [traum] {m} - German - dream
Bild [bilt] {n} - German - view, image, figure, picture, cartoon, illustration, art tableau, art painting

The Traumbilder project is about two forms of poetry: written and visual.
After several years of writing and photographing in isolation, enjoying each other's work, Silke and Tristan wondered if the two could be joined in marriage. The result is this book: a study in dreamscapes of photography and poetry.

By by Silke Hase & T...

Silke is currently in touch with a gallery to represent her Fine Art Photography, specifically her Holga work featured in the Traumbilder book. The book is available online for preview and purchase.

Fastest Turnaround Ever

Wow - I am blown away by my own speed.
In less than a week, I cranked out the Dan & Lizzy book. And once again the parents as well as the Creative Momentz Team is agonizing over delivery time of an entire week.

Come Play with Dan...

More Bragging

I am delighted that we got another one of   'these emails'. It was not exactly an official assignment when we took the pictures of Alee. We were - don't laugh - baby sitting. But none of us could leave the fingers off the trigger.
Here is what Alee's dad had to say:

Dearest Judy,
I can't tell you how moved I was last night looking at the beautiful photos of Alee. Actually tearing up. You caught the essence of this sweet, loving beautiful child and I can never thank you enough for your art. You have a tremendous natural talent for capturing the heart and soul of the person you are photographing. It goes beyond the superb technical ability of lighting, shadow, angles etc., you see the true person. You are the best.

Come play with Dan & Liz

Last weekend I went to shoot Daniell and Elizabeth ... a brother and sister pair ... and boy were they a handful! And as if that was not enough, we had a 10 weeks old kitten and the family dog to play with as well. We had a lot of fun and got about 150 good pictures that are currently being turned into a hardcover book. The parents as well as everybody here at Creative Momentz can’t wait to hold the book in hands. But until the book is finished, here are some photos to enjoy on picasa.

Judy, you did it again!

OK, it was "only a friend's wedding". But the pictures you took were right on. Here's what your friend Lorrie has to say about your photos of Carrie's and Steve's wedding.

You have no idea how much I appreciate those photos and all your hard work. These are the FIRST photos I have seen of the wedding and they are all fabulous!!
Thank you so much for doing that and sending them to me…and so quickly!! I love them all. You are the best!!

Sunday in Mass

Since last week we have a sample portfolio for everybody to look at and hold in their hands. It's in the sitting area at ISIS Maternity in Arlington. Stop by ISIS when you are in the area, they are worth a visit even without our cool book.

On another note, we had a wonderful Sunday on Cape Ann.
We rented kayaks at North Shore Kayak.
I was too scared to take the camera with out on the Atlantic ... but once we got back I started clicking away.

[removed slide show]

My personal favourite is the sunset behind the Ice Cream shop ... it doesn't get any better than that.

Time for a little bragging

I just received this email from Corey, one of our early clients:
The site looks great and is rather impressive!! Can't tell you how happy we are with the book and the photography you did.
You should know that you are welcome anytime.
Thanks for the update and best of luck with future photo sessions.
All the best,

And another one from Sheila:
Love the site - we definitely have to order more books but as you can see we haven't got around to that yet. It's been a little busy here, between painters and plumbers and electricians and I can't remember who else..... oh yes, Miss Taryn herself! Anyway, good luck with the venture and I will be retaining your services for year 2, we'll have to build up a library of Taryn at each stage of life.

Hello Lukas!
Congrats! Your book just went live.
You were a wonderful subject to take photos of.
I talked to your mommy the other day; she is tickled pink about the book and she can't wait for you to grow so that we can make another book. ... and I am not even mentioning your grandmothers' reactions.
Here it is: LUKAS ... eine f o t o h o m a g e

Bike-a-Thon Event in Boston

On Sunday we volunteered for the Bikes Not Bombs Bike-a-Thon. I tried to document the fantastic atmosphere of the day.

Bikes not Bombs - Bike-a-Thon

I was at the start point until the 25 ride got on its way. Then I was confined to the following car and only saw the poor bikers who had problems riding. Ironically the first person to break down with the a flat was Sweep Rider Ian.
At the lunch stop we saw some more folks. People were eating peanut butter on apples - a strange sight for me, but it seemed to be very popular.
The end point for all rides - the 62, 25 and the 10 mile rides - was Memphis Restaurant.
All in all it was a great day for all participants. Enjoy the photo album (See link above)

Welcome to our new blog. Everybody has one and so Judy and I (Silke) decided that for our brand spanking new portraiture and event photography business - Creative Momentz - we need one too. We will keep you posted on what we do, did and want to do. Hopefully it will all be really cool stuff with tons of beautiful photography.
