Why Depth of Field,

Dof 24/7 is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in our line of site when looking through our lenses that appear in sharp focus in a photograph. depth of field depends on how wide the lens opening, the focal length of the lens, and the distance from the lens to the subject we are capturing as photographers.

Dof 24/7 has the same meaning when you think of the life of a photographer who is looking to see the real image of life around him/herself with clarity and warmth. Capturing the iconic images of ones visuals of life's moments.  We live at that instance to only relive that moment in time a second, a day, or years later.

The photographer is truly catching time and holding it, freezing seconds and the spirit of times gone past in there cameras. I want to welcome all who visit and contribute visuals and the knowledge we will gain from this page of histories of photographers young, old, past and present the world over.

The future is now and we have an opportunity to continue in the same paths of others that have left us great images of our yesterdays with the images they capture while having images sharp and in focus.

Welcome to "dof 24/7"

Hello fellow members,

I started with darkroom photography (still my favorite) then reluctantly "drank the kool-aid" to join the digital age a few years ago. I now combine art and photography for what's been referred to as "edgy and contemporary."  Prior to this, my work was more mainstream, in newspapers and on billboards and websites. Looking forward to sharing mine and enjoying the work of others here on BAIA!

Sharon, You may feel you are out of the loop but there is no loop just yet. Making a living or just exhibiting work for Black Photographers in the Contemporary/Commercial Arts market  is just beginning to open up and expand.

We, BAIA, not the individual members of the group are networking and developing markets for anyone who wants to take advantage of the things we developed.  We just came back from traveling the U.S. this winter. We were in NYC, North Carolina, Washington D.C., Arkansas (Walmart), Missouri and St. Louis. Travel this year was very rough. BAIA made the trip spending our money and time to develop new markets.

We did not ask you to send your art work anywhere, actually we have not ask anything from anyone who joined.  However I can understand the frustrations of waiting for opportunities, but fortunately waiting comes to an end and those who wait are glad they did. Unjoining is as easy as joining. And if you do leave you can always comeback.

I am not able to exist in this group.  I see nothing coming down the pike for a California based artist.  It seems I am way out of the loop. For that reason, I am not going to follow this group any longer. BAIA is not the group for me.  I cannot afford to send my art anywhere at this time.

Photography a growing field in the Contemporary Arts Market and there are many opportunities opening up to our community.   There are two exhibits in major markets that are featuring African American Photographers.

 Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video, on view at the Guggenheim Museum through May 14, 


 We encourage you to research and check out these shows online and if you can, get there in person.  Look at the style and the quality of the work that is being excepted into the commercial galleries.  There will be major things coming down the pipeline for Black Art In America and their members.  These opportunities are being made for you to take advantage of it.  So please stay tuned  .

Calumet Photographic abruptly closes U.S. stores . . .

Our source says they are having liquidation sales starting to day.  Which means good deals on professional equipment. If you were looking for lens today like I am - it might be a good day, provided you have a Calumet near you.  Check your location for their liquidation sale.

Andreas Gursky's Chicago stock exchange photo, valued at $1.2m, auctions for $3.3m.

A group of limited edition Andreas Gursky prints of different stock exchanges around the world attracted a lot of bids on Jun 26, 2013, Tuesday night at Sotheby’s and raised £5.5 million in total, far above the high estimate of £3.4 million. The most expensive of these, Chicago Board of Trade III, sold for £2.2 milllion, setting a new record for a Gursky exchange photo.
