Get Excited – DJI Mavic Air

By Equipment

A beautiful little sunset. As trees get older they lose their chlorophyll. Just let this happen. We just let this flow right out of our minds. Just go back and put one little more happy tree in there. Let’s get crazy. You better get your coat out, this is going to be a cold painting.

Let’s make some happy little clouds in our world. You can get away with a lot. Let your heart take you to wherever you want to be. The shadows are just like the highlights, but we’re going in the opposite direction. You are only limited by your imagination. All kinds of happy little splashes.

I guess that would be considered a UFO. A big cotton ball in the sky. Be careful. You can always add more – but you can’t take it away. Didn’t you know you had that much power? You can move mountains. You can do anything. There isn’t a rule. You just practice and find out which way works best for you.

With something so strong, a little bit can go a long way. Trees grow in all kinds of ways. They’re not all perfectly straight. Not every limb is perfect. You can’t have light without dark. You can’t know happiness unless you’ve known sorrow. If there’s two big trees invariably sooner or later there’s gonna be a little tree.

Maybe he has a little friend that lives right over here. This is the fun part Don’t forget to tell these special people in your life just how special they are to you. The more we do this – the more it will do good things to our heart. I’m a water fanatic. I love water. We must be quiet, soft and gentle.

So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. Now let’s put some happy little clouds in here. Those great big fluffy clouds. We spend so much of our life looking – but never seeing. It’s life. It’s interesting. It’s fun. It is a lot of fun.

Cateechee Headshots

Our client, Cateechee, is a resort destination in nearby northern Georgia. They are expanding their marketing to try and attract people from some of the nearby larger cities in South Carolina and Georgia.

Currently, the did not have any up-to-date headshots of their key staff members. My business partner, Daniel, and I were over there a while back and setup a quick shoot to take care of this.

The setup was easy. Two medium soft boxes, my Fuji XT-2, portrait lens, and their beautiful surrounding. I exposed for the ambient light on the golf course, and setup in the shade of their wrap around porch. Tweaked the lights to give just the perfect exposure on their faces, and did a quick 30 minute shoot to get everyone.

Preparing for a Video Shoot

We’re trying to teach you a technique here and how to use it. That’s what painting is all about. It should make you feel good when you paint. We’ll make some happy little bushes here.

We must be quiet, soft and gentle. So often we avoid running water, and running water is a lot of fun. But they’re very easily killed. Clouds are delicate. Just think about these things in your mind – then bring them into your world. I can’t think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Let’s put some happy little clouds in our world.

This is truly an almighty mountain. Remember how free clouds are. They just lay around in the sky all day long. You got your heavy coat out yet? It’s getting colder. Those great big fluffy clouds.

You can work and carry-on and put lots of little happy things in here. This piece of canvas is your world. In painting, you have unlimited power. You have the ability to move mountains. You can bend rivers. But when I get home, the only thing I have power over is the garbage. Imagination is the key to painting.

Get tough with it, get strong. Use what you see, don’t plan it. Let’s have a happy little tree in here. Be brave. Let your imagination be your guide.

Even trees need a friend. We all need friends. If these lines aren’t straight, your water’s going to run right out of your painting and get your floor wet. It just happens – whether or not you worried about it or tried to plan it. There’s not a thing in the world wrong with washing your brush.

You’re the greatest thing that has ever been or ever will be. You’re special. You’re so very special. Isn’t it great to do something you can’t fail at? You don’t have to be crazy to do this but it does help. These things happen automatically. All you have to do is just let them happen. Just pretend you are a whisper floating across a mountain.
