From the Edge - Jim Jirka

Click to Enlarge










The "Frosted Marsh" series co-exists with my series "From the Edge". Both series view the beauty of nature from the edge of a frosted marsh, forest, lake etc...

What do you think. Are the series cohesive enough to stand together? Comments, commentary and lively discussions are vigorously encouraged.

Frosted Marsh Series.

Muted colors, intimate complex scene, with just a touch of vibrance. Beauty everywhere one looks.

The components in each just seemed to flow together wonderfully.

Dagguerotype Lessons


"walking with THOR" large...
As much as I enjoy faking dagguerotypes, I would love to find some reference guides, books, classes, on how to actually do the real thing. Talking about snapshots, dagguerotypes are the most intense images of people I've ever seen. The always bug-eyed gaze of the model, the attire, and mood... I don't tend to find many dagguerotypes with smiling happy faces? is there a reason for that? or have I just not seen enough to know that there are shiny, happy dagguerotypes?

 p.s. if they made panoramic dagguerotypes I'd love to see'em too!

Man Made Wilderness


This is the lead image for a show of my work  that is currently hung in C'ville Coffee in Charlottesville, VA. You can see the rest of the images from the show here. All these photographs are an attempt to find "beauty" wherever I happen to be standing. Maybe there's even a "message." Free Food this Friday, Oct. 5, if you're in town, come to the opening!
