In the gardens of God In the gardens... Fine Art Flower Pho... By Jose Luis Mieza Photo book Book Preview

 

I'm 64 years old. I am an amateur photographer for 45 years.

Photography is the passion in my life. I try to express beauty,

as seen by the eyes of my soul. I am not interested in expressing the physical reality.

I hope you enjoy

What I look for is what I am seeing in the eye of my mind. When I see a landscape or a flower I have them in my imagination. The following challenge is to transfer them to a photo better than the reality. Creativity is the recognition and later accomplishment in the photo of our own one curiosity. First that we must have VISION. When contemplating the things these cause in us feelings in our IMAGINATION Finally to be able PASSION to develop to the VISIÖN and the IMAGINATION Those are the components of our creativity. The creativity needs to destroy it labels that sometimes we have formed on the things. ¿Because the grass is green or the sky is blue?. In fact the skies change constantly of color because the same nature is creative. If we contemplated that sky to traverse of autumn leaves it changes the color not to mention the changes that produce in that grass and that sky the different stations from the year, or rain, the snow, the dusk the dawn. It is not necessary to ask itself As it is the reality? but That feelings wakes up this to me that I see? The creative photography is not for catching the reality, for that is the fotorreportaje. The creative photography is for reflecting those that we see with the eyes of the mind. Much people say “those colors to me or that sky is not real” and I ask to him simply “But The photo Is pretty”. The beauty of the result is only the important thing. It is something but unreal that the photo in BW and nevertheless all we accepted that there are many beautiful photos in BW. That sometimes in BW we can express an idea or a feeling better that in color. The telephoto lenses tabién deform the reality? and nevertheless it would be inconceivable the photography without them, or the macros. Cartier Bresson so was obsessed with transmitting the reality that when positivar its negatives towards positivando until the perforations of the film. But never account occurred of which its reality was monochrome. The colors can be harmonious causing a sensation of peace or enormously resisted that they cause vrillantes or exciting sensations. Sometimes our mind will request to us that we saturate an image and in other than the desaturemos. With the light it happens the same To my they please in general the photos with diffuse light without great definition, for that reason I adore the “Orton effect”. Nevertheless there are occasions in which a hard light is necessary in order to trnsmitir dramatic quality.Creativity is the recognition and later accomplishment in the photo of our own one curiosity.

 

Everyone can record what you are seeing. But you have to see. (Ernst Haas)

 

Above all, I want to say my work: that man is a very delicate sensitivity. (Van Gogh)

Este no es un testimonio como muchos otros para decir que José Luis es grande, no hace falta. Con solo ver su trabajo sabemos que lo es. En casi todos los grupos que conozco, dice abajo que Reinante es uno de los donadores más grandes.Lo que si me sorprende, es que sea mi amigo. La gente que llega tan alto rara vez sigue siendo común. Reinante, mi amigo. Este testimonio es para que cada vez que lo mires pienses en mí y para que recuerdes que del otro lado del globo, tienes amigos que te queremos mucho y que también pensamos en ti. Por tu obra, pero por sobre todo, por lo linda gente que haz sido con nosotros. Tu eres de esas personas, que no necesitarían ser artistas para ser grandes, ya naciste con el corazón grande.

My friend Jose Luis Mieza absolutely doesn't need a testimonial, his work, his deep technics and his incredible good taste are the best testimonials for the one who is, I believe, one of the most representative photographers around. Thank you for sharing your photos with us, my friend. Muchas Gracias!

You may know a person by his work, a photographer's personality and feelings in their photos and I believe is true with Reinante (José Luis). The exuberance of love and passion of the warm tones can out of great memories, filling each moment of his live and ours in the present, other times white roses certify the purity of his mind and feelings. Visiting his stream is a walk in the pass, you may find you self walking around medieval streets or holding a beautiful white rose. That's about the time you realize what a true artist he is, his art comes from his soul and the great skills of his post-processing. There is a fire within him that keeps us all warm and at the same time he teach us with fabulous images & pictures that speak more than a thousand words. Thank you so much for being my friend. Abrazos

My dear friend ! This is the first testimonial i have written ever ... hope to find the right words to express what i feel while watching your photostream... for first : José is a sensitive artist with a great heart . Two words come to mind, "Love and Passion" and they shine through on each and everyone of his unique photos. I feel a great admiration for the beauty he sees and he shares with others I always find descriptions and titles he gives to his pictures very interesting. He never show us a simple image , but a creation. Not only the remarcable post processing is amazing, but the fact that he put his entire soul into his work . I also love the lyrics and poetry accompanying his pictures. Only a person with a great soul and nice feelings can make such a beautiful works. If you haven't visited José 's photostream - do youself a favour and spend a while going through some of these creative and wonderful pictures... One can learn a lot from his work ! Thank you for being you, José ! I’m lucky being able to call you an inspiration and a friend. Hugs !
