Twitch Stream Recap : Creating Creepy from Happy

I posed a poll on twitter asking for an idea of what to stream this week. Next Photoshop editing stream, most likely Tuesday or Wednesday, what do you want to see? — Stefan Glazer (@ghengis317) April 27, 2020 And well, you can see what won. While you can watch the entire VOD here, below, I’ll…

Revisiting My Past Work

I had been going through some of the fun shoots I’ve done on the fine art side. And this set was a collection of shots from an AirBnB in Asheville, NC. This place was an amazing set piece and great background for photos, as shown here in some of the pug shots I had done…

There is Magic in those Mountains.

The West It always seems to call me, and when I am there, it seems to grab tight and not want to let go. There is something stunningly beautiful about the southwest, the wonderful colors of reds, browns, and yellows. It’s a constant painting of the earth. I try to capture it as much as…

When is Depth of Field Too Shallow?

People, Pets, Objects, Nothing. We tend to take photos of everything around us out of compulsion these days, but it is always the same. Without the photographers eye, you end up getting weirdly lit/composed/colored/framed shots. Or worse, AI portrait mode that a tries to mimic depth of field and bokeh. Bokeh, the love of life…

How Did You Become a Pet Photographer?

How did I become a Pet Photographer? Well, that is an easy question to answer. Philomena the Pug is my pug, the joy I had photographing her and now her sister Penelope have given me endless joy. But, did you know I was a regular photographer before? Some of you do, but, here is something…

When A Brindle Pug Steals Your Heart

Meet Mojo, a brindle pug I had met at the Kennesaw Christmas Parade over the weekend. I literally need to show the world this cute lil boy Mojo. Also, Mojo’s instagram (with sibling Bubbles!).

I’m finally selling prints

I put the gallery together, it’s starting with the favorites and will add more as I create more art for the masses or for the few. If you have a favorite shot of mine, you can always say, “HEY WHY DON’T YOU HAVE THIS HERE FOR ME TO BUY” and I can upload it to…

Rumblings from Instagram

I actually put together a poll on doing something a little more professional in terms of selling some prints. I know, it’s a novel concept. Selling my art for money? Well, the positive result is that, 12 hours into it, a lot of people have said they wanted to buy my work. This gave me…

Art through Texture

I finally have put time and effort into trying to sell my prints. I will have MPIX fulfilling prints, I want people to have my art in their house. This will be the first step into getting there. https://sngdesignco.pixieset.com/texturedfineart

To sell your own photos, you have to sell yourself.

I’ve researched everything from Shopify, to Etsy, to weird things like ArtPal and of course free-ish things like WooCommerce. I have a Pixieset Gallery, I want to have a more fire and forget idea for my art. I think I figured it out. I think it’s time to burn it all down. For the longest…

The Road Isn’t Always This Clear

After a few polls on Twitter and Instagram, I found out that my followers online all were on the same page. They all wanted me to do down and dirty Photoshop tutorials. So, in regards to that, I will start recording and uploading them to the currently quiet and somewhat desolate Youtube Channel. What is…

Getting Back to What Makes You Happy – A Year In Review

With the holidays come and gone, I look back on this year and try to see what I did this year to further my progression as a photographer. I had gone from being lost in what I was doing to having finally found a niche. Or, well, several niches I guess. I feel pretty good…

How to Grow as a Photographer

The Process Maybe growing better as a photographer is a misnomer and what I should say is, “How to grow in the field of photography” instead. This article is really dedicated to my wife, because she was the one who would even say, “Your photos look so gritty and grimy, how can you make them…

How to Plan A Cosplayer Photo Shoot

Cosplayers Make The Best Models Most people who see a portrait done of their favorite cosplayer or model, just see the finished version of a the photo. However, there was a lot of thought and setup that had gone into that. I have shared the few shots I had done for the 3 cosplayers at…
