July 25, 2007 CameraArts Preview Portfolios

Three more portfolios have been posted in the CameraArts web exclusives section. These Preview Portfolios are meant to give you a taste of works we will be featuring in a future issue of CameraArts.

Dan Montesi has compiled a great deal of nature photography from the Everglades National Park and Big Cypress Reserve. Sandra "Sko" Ogle explores new dimensions of light and color, using dolls as her main subjects,
in her series "The Dark." Tim Schacker places light sources inside of flowers to create colorful, mystifying images.

We want to hear your thoughts about these photographers! Please leave all comments below the fold—they just may make it into a future issue of CameraArts!

Tim Schacker brings great technical acumen to create images that move like Martha Graham and evoke the poetry of Walt Whitman. His work sublime.

Tim Schacker's flowers use shape, color and texture to project a strong sensual impression of great depth.

Sandra Sogle's dolls depict a frightening dark place. A point in life I don't think I'd want to visit for long. Very powerful art.

The doll photos by Sandra Ogle are thought provoking beyond their simplicity. I see lonelyness and abandonment. I wonder if there was a real story or mearly the intention to engage the viewer's own 'DARK' thoughts?

The Dark images of Sko Ogle are powerful and insightful, displaying the emotions of the artist.

Sandi Ogle's images are very powerful. They hit at the subconscious fears and memories that many of us have. The images themselves are disturbing, yes, but beautifully and movingly rendered. Great work!

Sandi Ogle's stunningly evocative images vividly depict for me some of man's most commonly held fears...death, darkness, loneliness and an overwhelming sense of a lack of control over our lives. Very powerful and emotional. I would love to see the complete portfolio.

Sandra Ogle's images leave me filled with intrigue. I love that she explores and tells stories using the dolls and I would love to see the entire series as well as other work that has edge.

In looking at the three photographers I was drawn to the mysteriousness of Sandra Ogle's images. The use of light/color and the dark subject matter is eerily refreshing. More please!

I do like the flowers Tim shot and his use of light is great, but flowers are so over done that I desire to see something unique, like that of Ms. Ogle's.

All of the photos are terrific. However, I find Tim Schacker's the most evocative. His use of light to bring out the shapes and colors of the flowers treats them at the same time as manifestations of nature and also almost perfect digital creations worthy of Pixar.
Beautiful stuff.

I love the flowers by Tim Schacker. How does he do it? A really amazing insight into nature.

Not sure I like Sogle's dolls too much. They are a bit immature. Like teenage poetry. The butterfly is fabulous, but I would give first prize to Tim Schacker for his breathtaking flowers.

Sandra Ogle's art is both intriguing yet disquieting. They depict an obscure sense of loneliness and helplessness.

I love Tim Schacker's flowers. The lighting brings out the inherent sensuousness of his subjects and the resulting images resemble flowing skirts, beautiful fabric, and the human figure. More!

Tim Schacker's flowers open a whole new door for macro photography. The contrast, depth, color, and texture all work together to create truly beautiful images.

Stunning. More real that real. I love this work, its simplicity & honesty. It stands out among everyone elses efforts at shock value.

I find the color and form of Tim Schacker's work incredibly moving. The simple yet intense focus of his images are somehow life affirming. What a world!

Tim Schacker's images of flowers opened my eyes and mind. I sometimes found myself thinking of the inside of the body, of life in a coral reef, or a giant nebula in outer space. Fantastic work!

Can't you just smell the bouquet of Tim's beautiful flowers?

The dark dolls of Sandra Ogle's are beautifully disturbing. Keep up the great work!

I find Tim Schacker's photos both gorgeous and awe inspiring. His technique encourages the viewer to rediscover the sublime power within forms we often fail to fully appreciate.

Ted Sabarese's "Evolution," and Melody Mason's "Reflection" series are by far the most conceptual and innovative photography. And I've seen Ted Sabarese's work for an advertising campaign in Communication Arts. That's impressive. I look forward to seeing more of their work...

Ted Sabarese's photographs always stop me. I see something new everytime I look at them. They're just plain beautiful.

I see hundreds of photos every week at my job. Whenever I see Ted Saberese's work, I'm always compelled to stop and have a good look, this time was not an exception. Excellent stuff.

While maybe seen before, the complete frame of Ted S.'s photos fill out the idea more thoroughly.

Schacker's flowers are absolutely the best. I look forward to seeing more and following his development as a very sensitive and inspiring photographer.

Personally, I think Ted Sabarese's "Fish" images are stunning. From the concept, to the casting and the styling, the images are thought-provoking and visually captivating. Also quite humorous, which we can all do with a bit of these days. Well done!

Lots of amazing work here- for me, the images that held my attention the longest, and that had me thinking for a while after were the shots with the fish, from Ted Sabarese. Great casting there and over all its a well executued intriguing project. I'd love to see more. -David
