Forss – Spiritual Portrait – error

11 May

My last blog image has some cutoff of its composition that spoils my image and my comments. There is a little more image just under the dog along the bottom of this image.
I should be aware that this can happen.
I told the subjects in this picture, Jon Katz and Maria Katz that I captured the Spiritual toughness they have.
What am I talking about ? I have some notes based on some input that I have about spiritual people.
Spiritual toughness has to do with the personality that someone wishes to feature in their world.
This person will tend to have one look and a kind of uniform like way of dressing.
They are always the same, and growing in this way !
My mother was like this. Do you know people like this.

Stay tuned for more foolishness.

Forss – Spiritual Portrait – technique (not)

11 May

G Forss John and Maria Katz farm 3003I have been doing some new portraits that I want to describe as being ‘Spiritual Portraits’. This is very difficult because this is too fanciful a description to describe what I have been doing.
I should just stop doing this but I am getting a result that shows an unusual finery in the juxtoposition of everything in such a picture.
Look at the picture I have here and some others I have foolishly declared to be one of my ‘Spiritual Portraits’.
I think such a finery can be accomplished by anyone when they are ‘open’ to such an undertaking.
When I set out to capture people in a spiritual portrait (a portrait that will show an unusual finery in the result) I do not assume that I will not get what I want, that I will just let it happen. I think there is some kind of channelling going on here like I do with my writings. I’m not kidding ! Is it all some kind of mindset ? I notice
that there is an unusual finery in all fine art, a spiritual finery. The artist for such work gets all the credit of course … and ‘of course’ … all of this assert-a-tioning is of my own foolishness. I think we can tap into some finery in the universe in our work/creations in a Natural/Spiritual way.

George Forss – Symphony No. 1 – Elephant

5 May

http://unknownalbum(3-7-2013 10=39-54am)G Forss Symphony No. 1 Elephant picture small fileA few years ago I wrote nine symphony’s utilizing an orchestra of electronic feedback sounds. I discovered that my set of audio components was all wired up in such a way that I was getting quite an amazing aray of feedback sounds. This is when I decided it was time for me to compose some serious music. I have one here about the Elephant. It is so sad that the elephant we know in the wild is near extinction. We would not let this happen but who knows. I want to put his on my blog as a tribute to the elephant.
I have a CD disk of this symphony available for $12 plus shipping. Ginofor Gallery 38 West Main Street Cambridge, NY 12816
I have an upgrade so that I can put a video/audio on this site. If this doesn’t work I will put the symphony on when it does work

Forss – Double Exposures – Norma and George

1 May

G Forss  Me and Donna D Exp with pumpkin pie002 small file fix handHere is the double exposure I did recently. I am using a 1937 Ziess Icon folding camera for this. I used a twenty foot bulb shutter release. A twenty foot long thin hose wire that works very well with this camera.
This picture is very playful and a bit risque. I title this one … “Double Exposure with a Pumpkin Pie”
This is me with Donna Wynbrandt, my spiritual mate in life. Donna likes this image and I got an OK to use it here.

Forss – Double Exposures – Norma and George

1 May

N Forss Double Exposure for blogI have two pictures that are double exposures to feature. One is a combo of two portraits of children my mother photographed in the 1930s. This one is obviously an accident that is common when one picture is accidently exposed over another on one frame or image file. My mother’s picture is a very astute one after all because it looks as though the two portraits were carefully intergrated. This cannot be true because my mother never set out to do double exposures. Also, this is the only double exposure image that I have found in her collection.
I do double exposures all the time. I am known for my efforts in this regard.
Now, I believe that I get a helping hand somehow when I do a double Exposure picture. I know that the intergration of my two images is, like … too good to be true … except for such a helping hand (or pure luck ?)
I am illustrating my mother’s picture here and my recent double exposure in my next blog.

Is this a blog ? I better try and sell something. I am selling my images for $65. right now. I can make an 11 x 14 on 330 weight fiber base ink jet printing paper that is quite a lasting proposition. Add $15 for shipping and handling. Also, visit my gallery in Cambridge, NY I am The Ginofor Gallery at 38 West Main Street 12816.
