Salem Krieger presents his Art Is Helping project. Art Is Helping brings artists and charitable organizations together, supporting both the non-profit organizations and the artists. Buyers can purchase archival exhibition quality pigment prints while donating to charities of their choice. A portion of their purchase price is tax deductible. The available charities represent a wide range of important causes including the sustainability of the planet, feeding the homeless, comforting at-risk-animals, contributing to native American causes, and providing help to veterans- just some of the shared goals of Art Is Helping. Topics covered will be how artists can be pro-active with their art; and going beyond the concept that art is just something you place on your wall and look at. Viewers will walk away with a new model of aiding those in need. For artists, it breaks the old model of simply donating art to non-profits to help them raise funds.

If you are lucky enough (and talented enough) to have a long career in photography, over time your work takes you down many roads, and Mel DiGiacomo is one of those photographers. Whether he is shooting the US Open or a wedding, on assignment for top magazines, or doing self-assignments on the street in New York City or in his small town in New Jersey, Mel is one hard-working photographer whose ability to adapt to a wide variety of situations and come back with the pictures holds lessons for any aspiring photographer. Photographers are always looking for subjects, and in so doing, often choose the street. As Dorothy Norman said, ‘You don’t have to go fifty feet from your house to find a photograph.’ And Mel is a great example of this. Mel is a legend in street photography, and New York City in particular, has been his beat. It is a place that lends itself to the art (afterall, our sidewalks are 18% grey!) But recently, Mel has spent quite a bit of time in Los Angeles, and he shows his new work and talks about the differences between NYC and LA and how those differences inform his work. But street shooting does require a certain discipline. In this video, photographer Mel DiGiacomo discusses how to know the light, how to learn the vocabulary of your lenses, and how to put aside the technical aspects and keep thinking to a minimum to keep your shooting instinctual. Mel looks for human behavior, and follows the advice of Walker Evans, ’Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You’re not here long.’ Mel will get you thinking in different ways to help stretch your photography muscles. Mel DiGiacomo Photography https://meldigiacomo.photoshelter.com/
