Creating a Photograph vs. Taking a Photograph

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” 
— Elliott Erwitt Who this post is for Aspiring photographers or anyone who wants to learn how…

Open Source is the new Sacred Geometry

Wait… what’s Sacred Geometry? This is not an article about religion. My favorite definition of Sacred Geometry by Randall Carlson Essentially, in the universe, we can see most everything is constructed from the same mathematical principles and patterns. From atoms that form together to create human cells, snowflakes, honeybee nests (hexagon), and the nautilus shell (logarithmic…

Golenski v.2018

I only update my headshot once every several years. I decided it was time once friends and colleagues started telling me that I’m unrecognizable in my current headshot. Who knew beards has such an impact on facial distinction? Anyway, I spent some time tinkering with a nice studio setup I purchased in order to take…

Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returned…

Staying focused by shifting focus.

As designers, we have a single task. Finding a solution to a problem. No matter what discipline of design we work in, the premise is always the same. A problem exists and we need a remedy. But the thing is—problems are sometimes hard… really hard. Depending on the scope of the issue, finding the answer often…

Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change. Thankfully, in the northern hemisphere, the summer months allow for the best milky way viewing fairly…

Break in the Storm

The past couple of days in Southeastern New England have been a bit of a heat wave. And being from Massachusetts, we all know that heatwaves usually break with thunderstorms!

The shooting star that destroyed us

Sat down tonight with some nostalgic tunes from my high school days (think Senses Fail, Finch, and more). Thought about all the fun I used to have jamming out until the sun came up, creating image manipulations and digital paintings. It’s been well over a decade since I got lost in photoshop just creating art…

The Quiet Amsterdam Canals

While in Amsterdam with some colleagues this past February, we stayed on a houseboat for a couple of nights located on one of the canals. The gentle rocking of the boat at night was a wonderful way to fall asleep. While I found Amsterdam to be a bustling city during the day, it became quite…

Star Trails over Sakonnet Point

Sometimes the best star trails are captured during very cold nights on the beach. Taken at Sakonnet Point, Little Compton, Rhode Island. In the distance you can see Little Cormorant Rock Lighthouse.

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars to…
