more thanks

by     /    August 07, 2007   

One more time! Thank you to Andrea of Anything Indie for posting about my art. She said “…I really love a great bit of photography with images that represent life at its best.. Images in photographs that make you feel good just by looking at them. That’s how I feel when I view the work of Daniel Sroka.” I may blush. 🙂

Lately I’ve been caught up in the details of my art, trying to refine some of my techniques. I’ve been working on improving my lighting skills, which is a never-ending quest. Like my first lighting teacher would say, you can learn the basics of lighting in a week, but spend the rest of your life getting it right. It’s important stuff to do, but sometimes I can get so focused on the details of my art that I forget to step back and just look at what I am making. Words like these from Andrea help me regain my perspective, and remember why I am making this in the first place.

Daniel,

These are great comments and they can only serve to motivate and reinforce your goals and to strive further to achieve the vision and style that you have established. I think sometimes artists don’t want to admit how important attention and acceptance of their work is to them, it’s a bit scarey to be dependent. Personally, I like to see artists like yourself share this kind of attention to their work.
