Bodhi's Perfect Fall

"Bodhi's Perfect Fall Showcase". From 4:00-8:30pm at Mom and Pop's Gallery in Menifee, this will be a highlighted "no-holds-barred" sale of each and every one of my classic large framed pieces. This is the first time I have ever offered a sale of this magnitude of my most classical works. Some are my limited #1 prints and many others are ones numerous people wanted to purchase in the past, but the situation or pricing was not right for them at the time. I really want to sell them all! I am seriously looking at any heart-felt reasonable offers for some of my one-of-a-kind pieces. At this November show, I want to match those pieces with the right people at the right price to find the perfect wall in a home or office of the person that it suits the best. The goal is to find a great home for some of my classic thematic pieces, clear off the walls of the gallery so that I can create fresh and new thematic framed pieces, and hang them for the December holiday showing (see below). Beverages and refreshments will be served as always.

Blending Images: Bodhi Smith Presentation at San Diego County Fair

Blending Images: Bodhi Smith Presentation at San Diego County Fair

Bodhi will be at the San Diego County Fair (Del Mar Fairgrounds) Photography Exhibit from 4:30-6:30pm discussing editing techniques for blending two or more images together...many of my most beautiful images are not possible to be created in a single frame capture as light and composition conditions change. The dynamic range is just too great to be captured in one shot, so the use of blending two or more images becomes necessary to create compositions that are balanced. Specific techniques in capturing the images to be blended in camera, as well as using Adobe Photoshop CC to blend those images together, will be discussed and demonstrated.

Bodhi will be at the San Diego County Fair (Del Mar Fairgrounds) Photography Exhibit from on June 12th 12-1pm talking about his concept of "Planned Chance"...it is not an accident that Bodhi captures a beautiful landscape photograph that finds him in the right place at the right time. There is much planning that is needed and goes into successful landscape imagery. Yet there is always that element of luck supplied by nature needed to have it all work out. Ways of improving your chances of getting that "perfect shot' will be discussed along with applications used in this extensive planning process to help you learn to be in the right place at the right time

"Stop the world. Slow down everything. Shut off the noise. Seize this moment. Reconnect. Feel and sense what surrounds you. Listen to all the colors of light that envelope you. See the melody and harmony that floats about unnoticed. Taste the solitude of all this wonderment. Smell the beautiful silence within your peaceful serenity. Then, reach out and touch your faith. This is my world." ― bodhinku
